Hon. Evangelist Jones Ayuk O. Tangban, the founder and Chancellor of Havilla University Nde-Ikom (HUNI) visited and toured the JAMB CBT Centre at the University, even as the Centre hosted the 2023 JAMB organised Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME), which is also taking place across the nation. Hon. Evangelist Tangban who expressed ample pleasure at the CBT Centre, noted that it will greatly ease the burden from millions of candidates and their parents in the Central and Northern Senatorial districts of Cross River State. Recall that after the University of Calabar CBT Centre, and the one at the CRUTECH's College of Education Campus at Akamkpa, the only other CBT Centres are in Ogoja and FCE Obudu, leaving all of Yakurr, Biase, Abi, Obubra, Etung, Ikom and Boki LGAs without any CBT Centre to serve them. At least 1.6 million candidates sat for the 2023 UTME entrance examinations for admissions into tertiary academic institutions in the country. The HUNI JAMB CBT Centre is operated by FZX, an ICT based company. The Centre, which was approved by JAMB earlier in the year has a sitting capacity of 275 Internet-enabled workstations. However, JAMB had approved 150-seater at each examination time, with the extra systems acting as backup. The HUNI JAMB CBT Centre is fully air-conditioned. It witnessed full capacities at all the three sessions of the UTME examinations of 7:00 am, 9:00 am, and 12:00 noon respectively. Havilla University is the first varsity in the entire Central and Northern Senatorial districts of Cross River State. The University, founded by Hon. Evang. Jones Ayuk Ojong Tangban, is also the only approved JAMB CBT Centre after Ogoja and FCE Obudu.
