The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has revealed that it is not in a hurry to release the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) results, Concise News reports.

This online news medium understands that there has been apprehension among candidates who sat for the UTME organized by JAMB this year as they have not seen their results.

However, the Head of Media and Information of the examination body, Fabian Benjamin, has attributed the delay to JAMB’s quest to ensure the credibility of the results.

“We are gatekeepers but the entire security system of the house could be compromised if we refuse to keep the gate,” he told Saturday Sun.

“We would strictly follow the process so that we can get it right. We are less concerned about the time, but (more about) how well and credible (the results become); neither policy meeting nor admission will start this month.”

He, however, assured that “the delay will not affect any item on our timetable.

“The UTME results are intact and nothing has happened to them. No server has crashed and no other major challenge.

“The 2019 UTME exercise recorded malpractices but they were not as bad as they used to be.

“Even in previous examinations, there were malpractices but nobody noticed because of the way we handled them.

“We are not ashamed to admit that there are issues. But our pride is in getting it right. Once we get it right, it will serve as a message that it’s no longer business as usual.

“Illegality had thrived in the society of over the years because people failed to follow issues to (their) logical conclusion.

“But we have decided to do otherwise, and we need the support of Nigerians to achieve that.”

“Tertiary institutions who are our end users would also be proud of it.

“Our target is that candidates that commit any offence should not go unpunished. At same time, we don’t want any innocent candidate to be punished unjustly.”
