The Coordinator of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Zonal Office in Ibadan, Mr Sola Kuye, has given an assurance that all registered candidates would write the 2019 University Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) in spite of some challenges currently being experienced by them.
Kuye gave this assurance in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ibadan on Friday while assessing the conduct of the examination in Oyo State.
According to him, JAMB is working tirelessly to resolve challenges arising from the conduct of the examination in some centres.
“It’s been so far so good. We thank God that with little issues here and there, we are on top of the game as we are resolving the issues.
“It is going fine today, being the second day of the examination.”Generally, we have been having the challenges of power; generators having issues in at least two centres now.
“However, they have been trying to overcome it using alternative or backup power.
“Where we couldn’t, the candidates were moved to a spare centre, which is a standby centre to write their exam,” Kuye said.
He, however, stated that there was no issue with the internet, but only an intermittent system breakdown.
“But we have technicians who are attending to such issues, so there is no problem.
“I want to encourage the affected candidates and their parents to keep calm, we will see to it that they write the examination.
“There would be no problem at the end of the day,” Kuye said.
