2018 UTME: We saw our results before JAMB cleared them from website — Candidates

MANY candidates who sat for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, are crying foul, demanding reasons why their earlier released results were removed from the website of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB.

They are asking JAMB to explain why it displayed “You do not have any result yet” or “you did not write the examination,” after such results were earlier published and removed from their website..

Max Odinukweze said: “I had my UTME on March 10, and three days after my examination, I checked and saw my result using my phone. A day later, I went back to check to print it out, I was surprised when I saw the response: “No Result Yet” and since that time till now, I have not seen my result.”

Michael O. said: ”I took my Exam on March 10 and saw my results few days after. But when I checked two days ago, the result was no longer there. I have a feeling my result is among the withheld and I am unsure why. It would be quite unfortunate if I do not see my result again.”

Adeleke Adebola said: “I wrote my examination on Monday, March 12, 2018 at Funlearn Mind Builder, Opebi, Ikeja. I have been having issues with getting my result when I log in to JAMB website. It is either saying ‘You Do Not Have Any Result Yet’ or ‘You did not write the examination.’ My registration number is 86578256JF.”

Ochuko said: “I wrote my exam on March 10. I checked it once and saw it. The following day, I tried to check it again so that I could print it out but it showed me ‘No result yet.’ I don’t understand what is going on. Please I need explanation.”

Abdulganiyu Abdulrazaq Oladime said: “I have been checking my result since after the exam but I keep getting the reply: “You don’t have any result yet.”

Abey said: “It’s very frustrating for someone not to be able to access his/her result after the stress we went through.” A student from Port Harcourt said: “After passing through hell while writing the 2017 UTME in an unconducive environment, coupled with server problem, some of us could not write the day we were given. After waiting till odd hours in the night, we came another day to sit for the exam. Some of us who were supposed to write by 1:30pm wrote by 8:00pm, still the exam was cancelled in our centre. “My parents spent about N20,000 just for me to sit for the UTME so I could gain admission into tertiary institution. The government should please see to this and intervene. My UTME registration number is: 75246492ii. Innocent candidates Mc Freeze said: “Honestly, the organisation of this year’s JAMB was rather poor. As if that wasn’t bad enough, now they’re withholding some results. If you say some people cheated, bring out irrefutable evidence that some people cheated because I did not cheat.

Yusuf Omorinola, a parent said: “How long will it take JAMB to release the results of innocent candidates in order to free our children from the psychological trauma they have been subjected to for the past two weeks? These children need to concentrate on their forthcoming WASSCE. “I am appealing to JAMB to reconsider its position with respect to the withheld results of some candidates. Innocent candidates who prepared tirelessly for the examination should not be punished alongside those who engaged in exam malpractice. If actually the CCTV installed by JAMB at all CBT centres functioned maximally, in addition to JAMB officials assigned to the various centres, then suspected cases of exam malpractice should have been cleared by now.”

Court orders Jacob Zuma to refund over $1m to the South African government as legal fees which was expended on him

A court has ruled that South Africa’s former President Jacob Zuma must pay back the money provided for his legal fees. It is estimated that the state has paid between $1m (£792,000) and $2.2m in legal costs for him.

Zuma has been fighting multiple allegations of corruption for more than a decade and has incurred millions of dollars in legal fees. The court’s decision marks the end of a poor year for Zuma, who was forced out of office in February.

His successor, Cyril Ramaphosa, has been working to restore public confidence in the country’s prosecution service. Ramaphosa recently admitted that an agreement between Zuma and former President Thabo Mbeki had formed the basis of the decision to continue paying Zuma’s legal fees, more than a decade ago.

A judge has now declared the agreement invalid and ordered the state attorney to take steps to recover all legal costs incurred. Zuma has a large family, and has often sought financial support from business associates a habit that lies at the heart of the many corruption scandals that have engulfed him.

He faces 16 charges of fraud, corruption and money laundering stemming from hundreds of payments made to him in relation to a 1990s arms procurement deal but Zuma denies any wrongdoing.

 PDP reveals where Buhari, INEC ‘plot to rig presidential election’ 

The Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organization, PPCO, on Thursday accused President Muhammadu Buhari of plotting to rig the 2019 election “with illegal polling centers from Chad and Niger”.

PDP made the allegation while condemning the alleged plot by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, and the “Buhari Presidency to create illegal polling centers in Chad and Niger Republic.”

PPCO described the alleged plot by “INEC and President Buhari to secretly create polling centers outside the shores of our country, in total violation of the 1999 Constitution (as amended), as inexcusably criminal and exposes part of the plot to corrupt our electoral system and massively rig for President Buhari.”

In a statement signed by PDP’s spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, the PPCO said both “President Buhari, INEC and all Nigerians know that there are no provisions for Diaspora voting under our system. By the extant laws guiding elections in Nigeria, it is very clear who is eligible to vote, as well as the centers statutorily designated for elections. There is no provision for any special arrangement whatsoever.

“It is therefore reprehensible that President Buhari, in his desperation to rig the elections, is now trying to hide under the guise of making special provision for Internally Displaced Persons IDPs, outside the country, to illegally create rigging centers outside our country and import contrived figures into the election results.

“This clandestine arrangement further validates the alarm earlier raised by the PDP, in April this year, of INEC’s plot to secretly create 30,000 illegal polling centers in some remote areas, through which they plan to allocate millions of votes to President Buhari and the APC.

“Nigerians can now see that the APC and its candidate are not committed to peaceful, credible, free and fair election. Having realized that there is no way he can win in a peaceful and credible election, Mr. President is now seeking means to enmesh the 2019 elections in a constitutional crisis, public confusion and trigger an imminent violence that is capable of derailing our entire democratic process.

“Moreover, by seeking to open polling units outside the country, the Buhari administration has now agreed that it does not have full control of Nigerian territory and cannot provide security for Nigerians to freely participate in the elections.

“If President Buhari is in any way inclined towards diaspora voting, he should send an appropriate bill to the National Assembly for approval to accommodate not only Nigerians in Chad and Niger Republic, but also those in other sub-Sahara countries as well as Europe, America and other parts of the world, who have been agitating for Diaspora voting.

“We caution the Buhari Presidency and INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, not to set our country on fire by engaging in provocative actions in a desperation to rig 2019 Presidential election for President Buhari.”
