Jamb date and Venue shall be fixed for all those who have Biometric issues. The board as usual would be responsible for the cost of transportation of the candidates to and from Abuja.

Recall that the board had earlier stated that any candidate with biometric issues must report at its office in Abuja to resolve the issues and write the examination.
It was gathered in 2019 that out of the 52 candidates that were referred to Abuja due to biometric issues from the various states, only 22 of them actually showed up in Abuja for registration despite the fact that the board would be responsible for transportation.
