This year’s JAMB registration has been fraught with problems. According to NOIPolls, 60 percent of the 2017 JAMB registration applicants experienced one form of difficulty or another during the ongoing registration exercise.
These problems were said to have arisen from the fact that JAMB introduced new measures to ensure ease in the registration process.
