According to The Punch, JAMB delayed the release of the UTME results by some days to scrutinize the UTME results.

The decision was to ensure credibility and integrity as regards the issue of impersonation, mixed biometrics, and other forms of malpractices.

Legit.ng recalls that Oloyede said over 1.94 million candidates registered and sat the 2024 UTME in 118 towns and over 700 centres nationwide.

Oloyede said the exercise was faster because of the pace at which JAMB cleared UTME candidates and captured biometrics.
