Benjamin added that the breakdown of the results would be published after the last set of candidates has completed the examination. Meanwhile, a legal practitioner, Gozie Francis Moneke has filed a suit at the Federal High Court, Awka, against JAMB, alleging gross violation of the fundamental rights of candidates who registered for the 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) across the country.

Moneke, who is based in Awka, Anambra State, said the suit is on behalf of about 1.7 million candidates who registered for the 2017 UTME, just as he demanded that JAMB pay the sum of N2,000 to each of the candidates amounting to N3.4 trillion.

In the suit filed yesterday, he alleged that JAMB imposed cumbersome application procedure on candidates, making the process unduly lengthy, lasting between one to two weeks as candidates visited the examination authority’s offices in their states, banks or CBT centres and standing in long queues for hours under the sun and rain.

He also alleged that the board “imposed extortionate and exploitative fees” of N2,000 on each candidate for data correction and N700 for centre registration change.

According to him, JAMB provided the UTME syllabus and other information relevant to the examination only in an internet enabled computer disc, and this is a clear discrimination against thousands of the candidates who do not have access to computer or internet.

“Such candidates were unfairly prevented from preparing adequately for the examination. All these amount to violation of the fundamental rights of the candidate,” he said.
