The Registrar, Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Is-haq Oloyede endorsed the e –PIN outlet of the Nigerian Postal Services which he said has eased registrations by applicants.
Oloyede spoke in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital during his inspection of the ongoing registration exercise for the 2022 examinations.
He expressed satisfaction and excitement at the ease with which registrants are taking advantage of the e-PIN vending outlets of the Nigeria Postal Services (NIPOST).
He hinted that over 500,000 PINS had already being vended.
He disclosed that he was excited with the capacity with which NIPOST was setting the pace for other vendors adding that no other vendor had vended more than 10% of PINs compared with NIPOST’s performance.
“NIPOST has proved to be a worthy and dependable partner. I can only admonish NIPOST to keep up the good job,” Prof Oloyede said at the centre.
The e-PIN service is part of NIPOST’s new initiatives towards its renewal as a digital economy compliant agency of the Federal Government.
NIPOST Postmaster General, Dr. Ismail Adebayo Adewusi, said on Thursday that the organization is not relenting in its commitment towards a total renewal for more modern services to Nigerians.
“As you will agree, we have said in the last two years that we are set to reposition NIPOST in line with modern technology and ease of doing business. Last month, we launched the NIPOST Credit card scheme and in a matter of days, we are going to unveil our digital, online logistics services.
“The e-PIN vending is part of the services that are replacing NIPOST old businesses and there are many more in the pipeline,” Adewusi said
NIPOST had, since April 2021, announced to the general public, especially the 2021 JAMB prospective candidates that it had made adequate arrangements to commence the vending of JAMB e-pins as announced by the JAMB Registrar on Thursday 8th April 2021 in all Post Offices in Nigeria.
