The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has debunked a viral report alleging that an unidentified lady allegedly got a Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME score without participating in the exercise.

DAILY POST reports that an online platform had reported how a Facebook user, Gozie, raised an alarm, alleging that a lady who did not sit for the UTME examination got her scores.

According to the report, Gozie alleged that the girl, who was supposed to take the exam at 7 am, but all the systems at her centre were faulty, mysteriously got scores for her examination.

Reacting, JAMB in a statement issued on Tuesday by its spokesman, Fabian Benjamin, said the report was fake, describing it as malicious and a calculated attempt to undermine the integrity of the Board.

JAMB urged the general public to disregard “such irresponsible publications”.

“In investigating some of these allegations, the board discovered that some of these mischief makers copy results sent to other candidates, edit the details sent to themselves and then parade this as emanating from the board.

“The board challenges any candidate, parent or anybody with such a claim or information to prove it wrong by coming forward with the details of such claims and the phone number with which such results were conveyed.

“The attitude of these mischief makers would only propel the Board to further tighten the process of checking its results to make it more personalized and sure would be stringent when it should actually be a simple and straightforward exercise.

“The board reiterated that neither its results nor any of its processes have been compromised. Hence, it will continue to protect the integrity of its systems against such malicious actors, who are hell-bent on creating confusion where none existed”, JAMB added.
