If the above solution don’t work for you then you might have gotten your profile login details manually.
what do I mean?
During registration, JAMB stopped candidates from using their email addresses for registration and after registration asked candidates to link their email addresses to their JAMB profiles and receive their login details.
However, many candidates decided to create an account manually on the JAMB e-facility page which they used to log in to their JAMB profile.
If you are among the candidates that got your login details by manually signing up on the JAMB e-facility page, it simply means that JAMB is yet to recognize your account and that is why you get the error “you are not eligible to use this service” when you try to access JAMB CAPS.
