Over 1.3 Million Candidates Have Accessed 2019 UTME Results So Far- Says JAMB

Over 1.3 Million Candidates Have Accessed 2019 UTME Results So Far…

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board says over 1.3 million candidates have so far accessed their results using the result checker (code), 55019.

The board’s Head, Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Wednesday in Lagos, while speaking against reports circulating that majority of candidates had yet to access their results through the said code.

He also described as untrue, claims by some mischief makers that the N50 charges incurred through the code were going to the board’s purse.

“I want to refute all these claims as there is no truth in them.

“First and foremost, by our records, over 1.3 candidates who sat for this examination have accessed their results using the code for checking the results, which remains ‘55019’.

“Again, let me also state in clear terms that the N50 charged in the process of checking these results does not go to JAMB’s purse but to the various service providers,” Benjamin said.

According to the spokesman, the clarification became necessary in view of what he described as ‘wicked and malicious rumours’ by some persons that the board is charging a fee for checking of results.

Giving a breakdown of the total number of results checked by candidates through the various network providers, Benjamin noted that MTN had the highest, with a total of 888,598, followed by Glo, with a total of 190,923, while 62,170 candidates had also accessed their results using the 9mobile.

Benjamin said that before now, Airtel had some technical hitches, but thankfully, all such challenges had been addressed. A total of 104, 970 candidates have so far accessed their results via Airtel.
