How To Apply For Change Of State/Local Government On Jamb Portal (2019)


Virtually every year, especially after the registration of Jamb, there are always series of mistakes on the profile of about 60% of Jamb candidates, if not on the course or institution, it will be on the “Name”, “Gender” and most especially “State and Local Government”. Who is to blame? Many candidates complain deeply that the mistake was from the Cafe that did the registration for them; they complain that the person assigned another State and Local Government to them during the registration and due to their nonchalant attitude, they weren’t able to discover the mistake early, they realized the mistake after the print out was issued to them.

On the other hands, other Jamb candidates clearly put a State or Local Government which is not theirs. To them, they think that by doing so they can be able to get admission in their dream school as fast as possible because they have this belief that many Nigerian institutions accept their indigenes more than any other persons from a different state. But after everything, we also find out that these two sets of people; both the ones that did “unknowingly” and ones that did “knowingly” will later apply for a change of State and Local Government. Are you desperately in need to change your state and local government you put during the registration? Below are the steps you have to undergo for it to be successful.
