However, the board made it known that it would do so within this week.
But speaking with newsmen, Dr Benjamin insisted that the results would be officially released “anytime” within the week, not a specific day.
This, he explained, was because candidates would expect the results from the first two days of the week but might be disappointed as the board has yet to conclude the process of the exercise.
Benjamin urged the public to fully comprehend media reports to avoid misconception as the board was committed to ensuring sanity in the system.
He said, “We will not release it today, Monday and will not release it tomorrow, Tuesday.
“What we said was anytime within this week. By implication, we are concluding the screening exercise this week and results can be released anytime within the week.”
The board had earlier stated that it would only release the 2019 UTME results after undergoing thorough screening to identify and apprehend examination cheats.
