Real Reason We’re Yet To Release UTME 2019 Results – JAMB

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has attributed the delay in releasing the results of the April UTME to the desire of the board “to clean up the system”.

Concise News reports that while speaking in Abuja on Wednesday, the board’s Head of Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin, said the results were ready and secured under JAMB’s custody.

According to him, the board is holding onto it to ensure that those who committed infractions are not allowed to go unpunished.

He said, “Our not releasing the results is not as a result of any challenge at all. It is due largely to the fact that we want to clean up the system. Nigerians should cooperate with us, Nigerians should support us and Nigerians should even celebrate what we are doing.”

JAMB Gives Candidates Instruction

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has instructed candidates who sat for the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) to guard their profile code and registration details well. This, for their own good, as it is what they are going to use to check their result when it is eventually released.

Concise News reports that the board said unscrupulous individuals were on the prowl to defraud unsuspecting candidates.

JAMB’s Head of Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin, gave this advice yesterday in Abuja, the nation’s capital.

Also, he said the board had secured the conviction of three persons who were arrested for impersonation during the examination.
