Ekene Franklin, a 15-year-old student from Abia State has emerged the best candidate in this year’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME), by scoring 347 marks as the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Saturday released the results of the 2019 UTME.

In second place and also from Abia State, is Igban Emmanuel Chidiebube, a 16-year-old boy scored 346 marks while 17-year-old Oluwo Isaac Olamilekan Oloyode from Osun State came third with 345 marks.

But the Registrar of JAMB, Professor Ishaq Oloyode, who announced this at a media briefing, Saturday, however, said the best candidate may not be admitted in the University of Lagos, which he chose as his first choice because of age.
