The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has spoken on the release of the results of the 2019 Unified Territory and Matriculation Examination (UTME).
Naija News understands that the examination board said that the results ‘are all ready’ and that the more than 1.2 million candidates that sat for the examination from April 11 to April 18 will be contacted via their phones once the results are ratified.
The spokesman for the examination body, Fabian Benjamin, made this known on Sunday in Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial city.
In his words, the spokesman of the examination board said; “The board wants to distance itself from such rumours about releasing the results of candidates of the just-concluded UTME and steps to check these results as being speculated,” the JAMB spokesman told the News Agency of Nigeria.
“Candidates should disregard this information as it is not true. It is not emanating from the board.
“No results have been released yet. Yes the results are all ready, but we are yet to release them because they are still being ratified.
“The board is carrying out all the checks and balances regarding these results by way of viewing the CCTV camera as well as attend to all findings brought before it while the examination lasted.
“The release of the result will be publicised as soon as we are through with all the board has set out to achieve. We will let the public know
“Candidates should not bother themselves going to any cyber cafe to check any result. Our result check has been standardised. We will forward the results to the respective telephone numbers of those candidates who are deserving of it.”
