JAMB to release 2019 UTME results today
The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board ( JAMB ) said that it would release the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination ( UTME) results today .
The Registrar , Prof . Is- haq Oloyede , who disclosed this to newsmen yesterday in Abuja , said the board would meet and consider the details available to be announced to the general public .
“We are releasing our results tomorrow ; we are having a meeting today ( yesterday) to consider what to put out , ” he said .
This year ’ s UTME was held between April 11 and 18, with over 1 .8 million registered candidates . Since then , the board was yet to release the results, saying it would first screen the entire candidates ’ results to weed out those involved in any form of malpractice during the examination .
Meanwhile, the registrar has paraded a staff of the board , who allegedly collected N 25, 000 from an admission seeker last year , explaining that the suspect was reported to the JAMB management after he couldn ’ t meet the demand.
Oloyede reiterated the board ’ s determination to deal decisively with anyone , including its staff , found involved in any form of infraction, adding : “We are not hiding anything ; we are ready to deal with anybody caught and they must face the wrath of the law .”
Adamu Martin , a JAMB worker attached to the Information Technology Service, was said to have promised an unnamed candidate admission last year .
The suspect , Musa confessed to the crime , adding that he had refunded N 10, 000 to the admission seeker when the admission did not come through , adding : “The person came to me for admission and I told him that I knew people who would help. I collected N 25, 000 from him, but it did not work , so I now refunded N 10, 000 .
“He was the one who reported to the registrar . The person I contacted to assist the admission seeker said they had already closed the admission. So, I had refund part of the money .
“I apologise and I want JAMB to temper justice with mercy. This is the first candidate I collected money from. ”
