Prof. Ishaq Oloyede - Jamb officially scraps use of Scratch cards


The Jamb scratch card is now a thing of the past as the joint admission matriculation board (JAMB) has officially put into effect the removal of scratch cards for result checking and registration.

According to registrar, Mr Ishaq Oloyede, the board took the decision to remove the use of scratchcards in any of its services due to fraud. He revealed that the use of online pin vending will replace scratch cards. This means that as from today, prospective jambites should not patronize a jamb scratch card dealer.

The organisation will now only use “Web payment, ATM issued cards, online quickteller, ATM payment, quickteller mobile application and Bank Branch case /card”.



Oloyede stated that the National Assembly was in the process of amending the Board’s Act.
