The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says it is ‘not ashamed to admit that there are issues’ as it vows to ensure the credibility of the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) results.
The examination body is being expected to announce the release of results for the 2019 UTME even as candidates increasingly get apprehensive.
“We are gatekeepers but the entire security system of the house could be compromised if we refuse to keep the gate,” spokesman for JAMB, Fabian Benjamin, said on Saturday.
“We would strictly follow the process so that we can get it right. We are less concerned about the time, but (more about) how well and credible (the results become); neither policy meeting nor admission will start this month.”
He further said that “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.”
MORE than 1.2 million candidates sat for the 2019 UTME from April 11 to April 18.
