He further noted that the examinations did not go without attempts at malpractice.
Regarding rescheduled exams, he mentioned that candidates with genuine challenges have being transported to Abuja for their exams. He added that there will be no further exams for people with any form of inadequacies
About the release of the exams, he said:
“I can assure you the results will be released in due time. We are checking footages from individual exam centres to ensure people who engaged in malpractice are brought to book, the people in charge of this are working day and night.
Several candidates, guardians and parents have reacted that they are fed up with the inability of the board to release the results. They said “we don’t want to hear anything from the board again other than to release the UTME results”.
