The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced plans to release the names of people who have impersonated in its examinations in the past ten years, Legit.ng reports.
JAMB’s registrar, Prof Ishaq Oloyede, made the disclosure on Monday, March 18, during a meeting of critical stakeholders on strategic planning and preparations for supervision and evaluation of administration of 2019 UTME.
“We are making arrangements to compile and publish names of all the people that have impersonated in our examinations in the past ten years,” Oloyede said.
He noted that some of the impersonators committed the crime as graduates, and others as undergraduates with different names but similar fingerprints. “Some of these people impersonated even when they were already graduates. Some impersonated as undergraduates. “They impersonated using different names but the same fingerprints. Some of them are now in different high places and by the time we publish these names, those now in high places will be exposed.”
He also announced the body’s innovations for successful conduct of the 2019 UTME.
He said a robust item banks with appropriate safeguard had been developed by moving toward open examination with one million questions per subject which would soon be effected. The registrar called on candidates to comply with the rules of engagement governing the registration and examination of the UTME.
