*The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has stated that it will not go ahead with the sales of the 2018 JAMB Sales of UTME form which was supposed to begin November 22nd, 2017.*
This was made known to news men by JAMB’s spokesperson, Fabian Benjamin.
According to him, the postponement became necessary due to the delay in meeting the agreed deadline by the publisher of the compulsory reading text meant for prospective candidates for the 2018 UTME which he earlier promised to deliver on or before November 7th, 2017.
“As at close of work today, the publisher had not provided the 1.8 million copies required and this development painfully forced to the Board to shift the date from Wednesday 22nd November, 2017 to a date to be announced soon.
_”JAMB said it regrets all inconvenience occasioned by this postponement as it is working round the clock to announce a new date soon”_, the statement said.
A new date for the commencement of 2018 UTME Forms is expected to be announced soon.
