Hundreds of prospective applicants for the 2016 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) have staged a peaceful protests in Benin City, Edo State, demanding extension of the online sale of UTME forms that closed recently.

They urged the examination body to re-open its portal, lamenting that they could not afford to stay another year without securing an admission.

Some of the parents of the applicants in Lagos State, southwest Nigeria have also joined their wards to express their displeasure with the act.

They noted that they were upset with the closure of the registration portal, stressing that it has denied the applicants a chance to sit for the 2016 exams which will hold next weekend.

But in a swift reaction to the protest the south-south zonal Coordinator of JAMB, Mrs Priscila Ogunsola, dismissed the claims by the students, insisting that JAMB gave enough time for the registration.
