QThe Kwara Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps has assured the Joint Matriculation and Examination Board of maximum security during its forthcoming Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations.
The NSCDC State Commandant, Makinde Ayinla, gave the assurance on Saturday in Ilorin, during the assessment of some selected JAMB CBT centres, for the ongoing UTME Mock examinations.
Speaking with journalists, Babawale Afolabi, spokesperson of the command, said the NSCDC decided to move around the centres to have an insight of the locations and plan ahead for the main examination.
“The state commandant deemed it fit that it is appropriate for the corps to use today’s UTME mock examination to plan ahead for the main examination.
“That is why we moved around selected JAMB CBT centres and fortunately, most of the candidates were at the centres for the mock examinations,” he said.
Mr Afolabi said the commandant assured JAMB, students, parents and the public that the corps had put all security machinery in place, in order to have a hitch free examination.
Racheal Shittu, the JAMB Zonal Coordinator in Kwara, lauded the corps for their yearly maximum cooperation, adding that the board was also working round the clock in preparation for the examination.
Among the CBT centres visited by the NSCDC, aside from the JAMB Office, included the Kwara Poly CBT centre, University of Ilorin CBT centre and Sobi CBT Centre.
