Commission donates four CBT centers to JAMB

This donation was announced by Prof. Umar Danbata, acting executive vice chairman of the NCC, when JAMB officials paid him a courtesy visit at the NCC headquarters in Abuja.

In a move to accelerate the smooth conduct of Computer Based Tests (CBT) conducted by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has donated four CBT centers to the examination board.

This donation was announced by Prof. Umar Danbatta, acting executive vice chairman of the NCC, when JAMB officials paid him a courtesy visit at the NCC headquarters in Abuja.

The four centers are located in Kano, Niger, Bayelsa, and Oyo states and are all equipped with computers, printers, Internet connectivity and other accessories.

Danbatta also added that the NCC is not only aiding in the provision of CBT centers for JAMB, but “but provision of equipment for tertiary institutions through Advance Digital Appreciation Programme for Tertiary Institutions (ADAPTI)”, a program aimed at bridging the digital divide in tertiary institutions via the provision of computers and other ICT-related materials to equip lecturers and improve their ICT skills.

Other NCC officials present at the visit included the NCC director of public affairs, Mr. Tony Ojobo, director, licensing and authorization, Ms. Funlola Akiode, and chief of staff, Mr. Usman Malah.
