The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board JAMB has said they may start to release the UTME results from today Friday May 10, 2019.
This was disclosed by the board spokesperson, Dr. Fabian Benjamin to newsmen.
In his words, he said the board has suspended 100 of the 687 Computer Based Test Centre (CBT) across the nation over allegations of malpractice and violation of stipulated of regulations.
In course of our biometrics examination over 100 centres are discovered to be involved in acts not in tandem with JAMB rules and have been suspended from participating in examinations, he added.
“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.”
