The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board
(JAMB) said it would ensure a smooth and
successful conduct of the ongoing Unified
Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

Dr Fabian Benjamin, the board’s Head of
Media and Publicity, disclosed this to News
Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Bwari.
He said that as of April 13, over 1.2 million
have successfully written the examination
scheduled to end April 17.

NAN reports that over 1.8 million candidates
are expected to sit for the board’s UTME that
commenced nationwide on April 11.

Benjamin said the process of the examination
has so far been successful, adding that the
board was addressing some of the challenges
that came up during the exercise.

He also said that the board was still
investigating those who were unable to be
verified through its biometric process and
would come out with a stand on the matter.

Speaking also on the issue of results, Benjamin
said that no results have been released yet.
He explained that the board was still screening
the results as the examination was ongoing and
also because more fraudulent activities were
being identified in the process.

He said: “We have to keep screening these
results because there are lots of issues we
discovered like multiple registrations,
impersonation and the likes, so we are still
fishing them out.

“Some have been arrested and those yet to be
arrested, we have their records, we will fish
then out. However, candidates should expect
their results very soon.”

He added that the board’s suspension of some
Computer Based Test (CBT) centres nationwide
has not affected the candidates.
Benjamin explained that adequate examination
centres was provided to all who registered for
the examination.

The board in its weekly Bulletin of the Office
of the Registrar for April 15 said that it
uncovered and arrested ‘Professional
Examination Writers’ who writes examination
for candidates for a fee.

According to the bulletin, 50 of such
fraudulent persons were apprehended in
centres across the country as a result of
various intelligence gathering.

The bulletin also said that the board suspended
49 CBT centres from participating in the
ongoing exercise.

The suspended centres which are spread across
the country were suspended for failing to live
up to expectations in ensuring a seamless

30 of the exam centres were suspended during
the start of the exam on April 11, while the
other 19 were blacklisted during the
registration’s exercise; 10 of the centres are
located in the FCT.
