JAMB rejects apology of candidate who cheated 21 years ago


JAMB Registrar Oloyede

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has rejected the apology of Mr. Timipade Kemepade, a repentant candidate who confessed to committing exam malpractices in the course of obtaining the result of the UME (as UTME was known then) twenty-one years ago.

Mr. Kemepade, in a letter, addressed to JAMB titled: Restitution on my JAMB Result 21 Years Ago,” balmed youthful exuberance for his misconduct.

The letter read in part:

“With regret and sincere apology to JAMB, I, Timipade Kemepade, with Certificate No. 33208803GA confess that I participated in examination malpractice 21 years ago while sitting my JAMB examination.”

The letter continued, “I, therefore, seek the forgiveness of JAMB. I sincerely regret my youthful exuberance.”

However, JAMB, in its reply to Mr. Kemepade on Monday, stated that the apology and consequent admission of guilt are “rejected in their entirety and are, therefore, not admissible.”

Consequently, Mr. Kemepade was informed by the Board that the only condition for accepting his apology is his
willingness to forfeit all the certificates he had fraudulently acquired with the result of the University Matriculation Examination.
