[Abuja]–The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said that the 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) scheduled for today has not been postponed.

Fabian Benjamin, Spokesperson of JAMB, in a statement on Friday night, urged the public to disregard any message suggesting otherwise.

According to him, “The JAMB UTME scheduled for between tomorrow (Saturday May 13 and 20 2017, will hold as scheduled. Candidates are to disregard any contrary message sent by mischief makers. JAMB will not reschedule exam for any candidate.

“This examination is not postponed and candidates are urged to disregard any contrary and misleading messages being circulated by mischievous characters who want to create confusion and apprehension. JAMB wishes all candidates participating a successful outcome in the 2017 UTME.”

Ishaq Oloyede, the Registrar of JAMB, claims that some powerful forces are hellbent on sabotaging the efforts of the examination body.

“So I expect all other stakeholders involved in the system not to sabotage the efforts of JAMB but reciprocate such gesture and goodwill so that we could give Nigerians the best of services they deserve.”

“People are bent on creating problems where none exists. I believe their toes are very big and I don’t mind stepping on them. We believe that at the end of the day, Nigerians will know the truth and who to appreciate and who to condemn”, the Registrar said.
