The JAMB Registrar, Prof Oloyede has disclosed that the results of candidates identified in footage of Close Circuit Television (CCTV) to have indulge in unwholesome practices during the just concluded Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) will not be released.
The JAMB Registrar made this known during an interview on Channels Television.
According to him, the board has been busy reviewing the recorded footages of the exam across the country and a number of candidates will be punished.
“Those who have not received their results are qualified not to receive for now. In all cases where there were no problems, we released results of the examination within 24 hours. “But those who have not received their results, they may not be culpable but we are investigating.
Where we have reason to doubt anything or where we have report of anything that is not acceptable to us, we have withheld the results. “And we will keep on releasing them as we clear them. For instance, this morning, we released another 15,000 results. But among those who sat in that centre, we have reasons, concrete evidence to say about 300 of them, their results will not be released because we know they were not in the hall where the examination took place.”
“We are comparing those who sat for the examination, how long they sat in the hall, and how some of them took excuses that they were going to the toilet only to go to what they called VIP. “All this we are now able to track. And we want to say that we will not hesitate to sanction anybody no matter how highly placed.” He stated.
