JAMB to Release UTME Results After Investigation

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced that the results of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) that are currently under investigation will be released once the probe is complete.

The development comes after the recent release of the 2024 UTME results, in which 64,624 results out of a total of 1,904,189 were withheld for further scrutiny.

According to the registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, the withheld results are being subjected to a thorough investigation.

Oloyede disclosed that the investigation includes verification, procedural investigation of candidates, centre-based investigation, and allegations of examination misconduct.

According to a report by the Nigerian Interbank Settlement System (NIBSS), the move aimed to link bank accounts to the National Identity Number (NIN) and maintain clean financial records.

The report also revealed a 2 per cent monthly increase in inactive bank accounts, reaching 19.7 million in March 2024. An account is considered inactive if it has no transactions for six months.

On the other hand, active bank accounts grew by 3 per cent to 219.64 million in the same period.

The development follows the Central Bank of Nigeria’s (CBN) directive in December 2023, instructing banks to restrict accounts without proper BVN and NIN linkage.

As of April 2024, NIBSS data shows that 61.6 million Nigerians have enrolled for BVN.
