The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), says it has not released results of the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
Naija News reports that the Board’s Head of Media and Publicity, Dr Fabian Benjamin, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.
Benjamin insisted that the 2019 UTME results would be officially released “anytime” within the week.
The Board’s Head of Media said the explanation became imperative because candidates would expect the results from the first two days of the week but might be disappointed as the board was yet to conclude the process of the exercise.
His words: “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 said.
The JAMB spokesman urged the public to fully comprehend media reports to avoid misconception as the board was committed to ensuring sanity in the system.
This online news platform recalls that the spokesman had earlier said that the 2019 UTME results would be ready anytime from Monday, April 29, after a rigorous process.
Benjamin had noted that the board was still screening the results but hopefully, the results would be ready soonest.
Meanwhile, JAMB had earlier said it would only release the 2019 UTME results after undergoing thorough screening to identify and apprehend examination cheats.
