The President of the union, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, said on Thursday in Lagos that the owners of the blacklisted centres should also be prosecuted. The 48 CBT centres were among more than 600 centres used for the conduct of the UTME nationwide in May.

JAMB’s Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, had on Wednesday announced the blacklisting of the centres for alleged involvement in extortion and ‘organised examination malpractice’ during the UTME. Oloyede said the decision was taken at the end of an enlarged meeting with external examiners and other stakeholders in the conduct of the examination.

He also announced the cancellation of results of 50,000 candidates for alleged involvement in malpractice during the examination.

The ASUU boss said the development was a step in the right direction, describing it as “the way to go.’’
