According to him, the DIC is on wireless system as a result registration becomes very slow that candidates spent more time in the registration process.
He said the centre was supposed to register 100 candidates at a time but it could only take 20.
The registrar noted that other centres visited were not having any problems registering candidates except DIC.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that candidates numbering no fewer than 150 were seen clustering the centre’s gate as they take turns to enter the premises for registration
The candidates were also chanting protest songs but for the prompt intervention of the JAMB registrar peace was restored.
Also, the registrar quickly arranged for the candidates, especially the males to be moved to other centres where there was less pressure in the registration. Also Read; #JAMB Update: No Deadline Extension As 600, 000 Applicants Registers UTME

Meanwhile, JAMB said that over 800,000 candidates have registered since the sales of UTME form began on March 20.
NAN reports that prospective candidates for the 2017 all Computer Based Testing (CBT) had urged the board to consider extending the registration period due to the multiple challenges being faced by candidates.
They described the process as cumbersome, stressful and frustrating and as such, that there was need to extend the deadline in order to capture all.
