Fabian Benjamin, made the clarification in a statement made
available to the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos on Tuesday.
He said that the policy committee meeting responsible for the
determination of cut-off marks had not met.
According to him, it is in the best interest of candidates and
other critical stakeholders to jettison cut-off marks for the
various courses that are currently being paraded.
“We want to appeal to all candidates to jettison such
speculations and engage themselves in more meaningful
ventures that would add value to their future,” he said.
Benjamin said results of the just concluded 2017 Unified
Tertiary Matriculation Examination had since been released,
with a few others still being previewed.
“We want to appeal to Nigerians to understand that such
candidates whose results are being previewed may not
necessarily have participated in any malpractice.
“But rather, centres where they sat for the examination had
issues during the conduct of examination.
“These issues were reflected on the CCTV footage and this
suggests why they must be carefully investigated before
releasing such results,” he said.
