2019: An Impersonator Registered 64 Times -- JAMB

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has revealed that it has apprehended an impersonator who registered sixty four times (64) for the 2019 UTME 64 times, with an aim of writing the examination for 64 candidates.

The examination body said that multiple registrations led to an upsurge in annual registration for the UTME exercise by up to 30 per cent.

JAMB also said that it had cancelled the results of two Computer Based Test centres (CBTs) in Abia State over what it described as “widespread irregularities” during the UTME.

It gave the names of the CBT centres as Heritage and Infinity CBT centre; and Okwyzil Computer Institute Comprehensive School Ugwunabo, Aba, Abia State.

“However, in order not to unduly punish honest and hardworking candidates who found themselves attached to these two centres, the board magnanimously relocated all the candidates who had taken or were scheduled to take their examination in the two centres to other centres where they subsequently took their examinations,” it said.

JAMB apologised to innocent candidates involved in the relocation for the inconveniences they may have suffered, reaffirming its commitment to providing equal opportunity to all candidates to articulate their hopes and aspirations.
The body said that all the results of the examination sessions conducted by the Board in the two centres from April 11 to 18 were null and void.
