This news medium understands that JAMB Head od Media and Information, Fabian Benjamin noted this recently.
According to him, the examination body is working to ensure that those who cheated during the 2019 UTME will be thoroughly punished.
”What we are trying to do is to ensure that innocent persons are not punished, but I can assure you that we are going to punish all those found wanting,” he said.
This is as he noted that ”When fraudulent individuals get away with their mischievous acts, it is because the society is in a hurry to run to a conclusion, not mindful of the fact that certain acts should be pursued painstakingly to a logical conclusion.
”I want to let you know that the board has secured the conviction of some UTME fraud suspects in Kebbi.
”Therefore, we equally want to seize this opportunity to thank the judiciary for doing a good job, as we urge others to key into what has been achieved in Kebbi in an effort to get rid of fraudulent persons and sanitise the system.”
