The board, in a statement by its spokesperson, Fabian Benjamin explained that the delay was caused by some unforeseen circumstances occasioned by its determined effort to have a National Identification Number (NIN) integration.

“To be sure all processes are completed before the commencement, the board didn’t placed its advertorial as it was yet to complete the process of a smooth pin vending and candidate access to the registration app for the 2021 UTME/DE.
