UTME 2019: Massive cancellation hits Jamb results – Candidates who sat for the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) that held between April 11 and 17 should expect Massive cancellation of their CBT results.
FINANCIAL WATCH reports that the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) may likely cancel as much as 50% of the results of the 2019 UTME examination exercise.
This was disclosed by a JAMB official under anonymous personality, he expressed disgust at the massive malpractice recorded during the last Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) that held between April 11 and 18.
The source said while cheating was rampant in across all the centres in the country, the situation was worse in some parts.
He said the “fearless display of fraudulent tactics by some individuals including parents and centre owners,” would leave many people dumbfounded.
In explaining the factors behind JAMB’s delay in releasing the 2019 UTME examination results, the anonymous source said Nigerians would be shocked if they were privy to the footages from the CCTV cameras installed across the about 700 examination centres throughout the countries.
He added that at least 50 per cent of centres in some states would likely have their results cancelled.
“Those people, I trembled when I saw the magnitude of malpractice they perpetrated, in spite of the technological measures JAMB took. I don’t know what we can do again,” the source said.
“If you look at the CCTV camera recordings, you would now wonder whether these people thought we were just joking when we insisted on installation of CCTV cameras. I am sure they didn’t believe us because anybody that had believed us would not have tried what they tried in those places.”
The spokesperson for JAMB, Fabian Benjamin, also echoed the large scale examination malpractice, but said the board would not stereotype any particular region.
Mr Benjamin further said that while widespread cheating as confirmed by CCTVs are not new, the impatience of many Nigerians had pushed JAMB to release results before thorough reviews of the recordings in the past.
“What we have found out is that those who indulge in malpractice are usually encouraged by the impatient attitude of Nigerians who don’t always like matters being followed to a logical conclusion. That way, they always get away with their corrupt practices. But this time, we are patient to ensure that every single infraction is punished.”
“We are crossing the ‘ts’ and dotting the ‘is’. We are almost done with the CCTV reviews, we have considered the reports submitted by supervisors, and we have ensured that centres where widespread cheating is recorded we are able to fish out the few innocent candidates so that they don’t suffer unjustly. So, very soon, we will release results.”
Transfer News: Would Coutinho Be Welcomed Back By Liverpool Fans?
The Brazilian attacking midfielder is on a decision to be back at Liverpool from Barcelona. Coutinho played for Liverpool between 2011 to 2018. He left for Barcelona in 2017/2019 season and played attacking midfielder/winger, NIGERIA NEWS reports.
The Brazilian star has initially spent 6 years in English Premier League and now he wanted to be back at Anfield. The question is Would he be welcome well by Liverpool fans?
The decision is yet to be taken and silent for now. Carragher knew that Jurgen Klopp is always smart to take up an opportunity but that depends if Barcelona put the player on the price they can afford.
Jurgen Klopp then make an open statement as quoted below:
“I wouldn’t say I would be actively going to get him, but if there was a possibility of bringing Coutinho back for decent money, and Barca wanted to cut their losses a little bit because it hasn’t worked out, then I’d do that,”
“Would he be welcomed back? I’m not sure. But he should be. I don’t see any reason why he shouldn’t be.
“I know he got a little bit of stick when he came back [for the Champions League semi-final second leg] because he wanted to move.
“But [Xabi] Alonso wanted to move to Real Madrid, [Luis] Suarez wanted to move to Barcelona, and we still loved them when they went.
“Sometimes we pick and choose who we love when they leave. Nobody forced any player to go to Real Madrid or Barcelona – [Javier] Mascherano is another one.
“Suarez only got stick when he came back because of his antics in the first game, if he hadn’t done that then he’d be adored when he came back. What’s the difference between him and Coutinho?”, he said.
Carragher added on the benefits that Coutinho could offer a side that missed out on the Premier League title but is readying itself for a Champions League final date with Tottenham: “We lack that player in the squad. We have it in [Adam] Lallana and [Xherdan] Shaqiri, but this is a different level of player.
Carragher speaks on the advantage of having Coutinho noting that he could fill a missing space in English Premier League.
Jurgen Klopp then finally added that,
“It’s the one thing Man City have on us, they have Bernardo Silva, David Silva, Kevin De Bruyne. We don’t have that type of player.
“We have great midfield players who are all very similar. We could add something a little bit different.
“But that would only really be if it was a good price for us.”
