2019 UTME: JAMB Fails To Release Result 24 Hours After Promise, Gives Another Time Frame
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Monday said that it was yet to release results of the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
JAMB’s Head of Media and Publicity, Dr Fabian Benjamin in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja said that the results would be officially released “anytime” within the week.
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.
“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.”
Benjamin urged the public to fully comprehend media reports to avoid misconception as the board was committed to ensuring sanity in the system.
Benjamin, earlier said that the 2019 UTME results would be ready anytime from Monday, April 29, after a rigorous process.
He had noted that the board was still screening the results but hopefully, the results would be ready soonest.
The board had earlier stated that it would only release the 2019 UTME results after undergoing thorough screening to identify and apprehend examination cheats.
