The JAMB Registrar Prof. Ishaq Oloyede has stated that the board is yet to release the results of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination because due to some internal appraisals. He mentioned that JAMB wouldn’t want to release results because it had asked people to submit reports, particularly of malpractices.
He made this known during an interview with newsmen in Abuja during a meeting of the National Youth Service Corps management and with Registrars of Corps Producing Institutions in Nigeria.
According to him, the board has no reason not to release the results but at the same time, the board is doing some internal appraisal to avoid a situation whereby some results are withdrawn after releasing them. So the board has to go through the report of possible malpractices before releasing the results.
“And for the first day after the result was ready, we now scrutinized and we saw that about 40 percent of the report were not in. So, why release 60 per cent and create confusion? We have insisted that this year, we will not release the results until we have all the reports of examination malpractices.
“So, the issue of releasing results and now coming, they will be very few rather than the large number that we had. The results are ready but we believe we need to have all the reports; we have about 70 percent of reports now updated but we want 100 percent.
“The result will be out; for instance, I was told that the exam of Saturday is completed now. The results are in; when I get to the office today I will append my signature and it will go out.”
