The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has cleared and released the UTME results of 14,620 candidates under investigation while withholding 93 candidates’.
JAMB’s spokesman Fabian Benjamin, who disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday, said the results were released following investigators’ recommendations after the board’s management meeting.
“You will recall that the board, in its earlier release, stated that it will still review the results of the 2021 UTME exercise and any candidate found wanting will have his/her result withheld,” stated Mr Benjamin.
Out of the withheld results, 13 candidates were discovered to have been involved in examination “infractions” after they were released and “the one earlier withdrawn bringing the total of the results that have been withdrawn to 14,” he explained.
The statement further noted that “results of 332 blind candidates, whose examination was conducted this month, have also been released.”
The candidates whose results were withdrawn by JAMB included Gabriel Micheal, Lawson Joy, Sadiq Auwal, Attama Ikedichukwu (earlier withdrawn), Tambaya Yahaya, Anowa Anointing, and Ogbonna Dibia.
Others were Ani Maryrose, Ayomiposi Precious, Ekeocha Michael, Oluwarotimi Ayanfeoluwa, Edu Abiola, Promise, and Onyeama Odi.
