JAMB Reacts To Server Crash Report

JAMB has rubbished reports of its server crashing, assuring candidates that their 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) results are intact.

Concise News gathered that the Head of Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin, gave the assurance in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Lagos.

”We want to distance ourselves from such malicious and wicked rumours by fraudulent persons, as there is no truth in them,” he said.

”We did not issue any press statement concerning crashing of the server. All these are antics of desperate persons trying to cause panic and confusion among candidates and the general public.

”We are not going to succumb to such rumours as we remain focused in ensuring that we achieve what we have set out to do.”

According to him, Nigerians should appreciate what the board is doing as it is for the benefit of the Nigerian child and the national large.

Benjamin urged candidates to be calm and wait for their results to be released soon.

”I want to urge candidates not to entertain any fear. Their results are intact,” he said.
