The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB),
says it has not released results of the 2019 Unified Tertiary
Matriculation Examination (UTME).
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,
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.
“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
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.
