JAMB Announces 2017 Cut-Off Marks For All Institutions

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has fixed 120 as minimum cut-off mark for admission into universities in the 2017 Academic calendar.

Jamb cutt off

This followed the conclusion of the combined policy meeting which had Vice Chancellors, Rectors and Provosts of higher institutions as well as other stake holders in attendance.

The minimum cut off marks for polytechnics and colleges of education was set at 100 while that of innovative enterprising institutes was set at 110.

It was also decided at the meeting that admission into first choice universities should close on October 15 while December 15, 2017 was set as the closing date for second choice admission by institutions.

Also, admissions into public degree awarding institutions for the 2017 UTME examination will end on January 15, 2018 while for private institutions, it ends on January 31, 2018.

JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede said institutions, with the decision, are not to go below the minimum cut-off points adopted at the meeting for admissions.

He called for the adoption of flexible cut-off marks for admission processes by higher institutions in the country.

According to him, “What JAMB has done is to recommend; We will only determine the minimum, whatever you determine as your admission cut-off mark is your decision.
“The Senate and academic boards of universities should be allowed to determine their cut-off marks.”He said.

“The admission process is now automated with direct involvement of the registrar of JAMB for final approval.

“We have agreed to regularize admissions that were done under the table this year. From next year we will not accept anything like that.”

On the other hand, the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu stated that the cancellation on post-UTME was a mistake and said institutions are now at liberty to conduct, while adding that fee for the examination should not exceed N2000.

ASUU strike: Lecturers, students to return to classes in one week - Minister of Education

The Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, has said that the ongoing ASUU strike will end in one week

ASUU had on Monday 14 embarked on indefinite strike.

But after the meeting, both sides said there was tremendous progress following offers made by government and position of the union on the new offers.

The Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, on Thursday August 17 said the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities may be called off within one week.

ExamsNG gathered that the minister stated this at a meeting of the Senate Committee on Tertiary Institutions and TETFund in Abuja.

He said that the ministry and other major stakeholders were already holding meetings with the union to resolve some of the issues that led to the strike.

He assured that with the level of progress made in the negotiation, there was hope that students and lecturers would return to classes within one week.

“The issue of renegotiation is already going on. I have already written a letter formalising the meeting I had with the union because I went alone to face them and I wrote a letter which I gave them yesterday.

“From the way they received it, I think it is possible that the strike will be called off within a week, maximum,’’ he said.

Adamu said while explaining reasons for the strike, ASUU accused the Federal Government of failing to keep its side of the agreement.

He assured that the Ministry of Finance had agreed to do the needful with regard to releasing funds as soon as possible.

“The union had asked for N23bn to be paid.
“We said the condition for that N23bn to be released was for them to account for the N30bn they had taken which is a total of N53bn and they were not able to account for it.

“The Minister of Finance then undertook to do the audit from the ministry and we agreed that the result will be known within six months.

“The Federal Government undertook to be paying them N1.5bn each month during the time they are waiting for the outcome of the audit.

“Their grouse now is that the forensic audit promised by the minister of finance has not been done and the money promised has not been paid.

“So, at our meeting two days ago, we agreed that we will pay them and do a forensic audit on the entire N53bn.

“I wrote to the minister and she has already approved it and this money will be paid; probably on Monday, they will be able to receive the cheque,’’ he said.

Adamu, however, stated that his ministry did not agree on some issues during the meeting with the union.

He said: “There are other issues which we did not agree on and that is their request to be taken out of Treasury Single Account.
“I told them that it is not possible because this is a new policy and government is not going to change it for anyone.

“Concerning their salary shortfall, we said a lot of the reasons spring from what they are doing wrong. They do a lot of employment without proper authority.

“For instance, a university can decide to recruit 50 people and IPPIS is not aware. So, we insisted that institutions must stop doing that and they accepted.

“There is also the issue of the registration of their pension commission. I think they have one or two issues to iron out with PENCOM and I believe they will also be able to solve the problem within a week.’’

The Chairman of the Senate committee, Sen. Barau Jibrin, said the committee was impressed with the briefing by the minister on the matter.

He explained that the seriousness of the issue made the committee members cut short their recess, and said that from the assurance given by the minister, students and lecturers would return to school shortly.

Jibrin said: “We hope the proposal sent to ASUU by the minister will be accepted.
“On our part, with regard to getting some of the issues captured in the budget, we will do our best to actualize it.”(NAN)

Meanwhile, ExamsNG had previously reported that the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) may soon call off the strike action it embarked upon on Monday August 14 if the Senate is able to convince the union on its demands.

Confusion as 70 lecturers quit UNIMAID over Boko Haram attacks

Seventy lecturers of UNIMAID have resigned from the institution over incessant Boko Haram attacks

 Boko Haram insurgents have killed many lives and rendered many people homeless in the last two years
The chairman, UNIMAID chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, Dr. Dani Mamman said that while five lecturers were killed, three were held by the insurgents during the recent attacks
No fewer than 70 lecturers have resigned from the University of Maiduguri since the outbreak of Boko Haram insurgency in the North- East, Punch newspaper has learnt.
Also, while five lecturers have been killed, three were said to have been held by the insurgents during the recent attack on oil workers.

ExamsNG gathered that the chairman, UNIMAID chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, Dr. Dani Mamman, who said this in an interview with Sunday Punch, called on the Federal Government and the university authorities to put in place adequate security.
Mamman said although closing down the university was the initial thought; it was resisted by the management.
ASUU added that as a union, it believed that if its demands made to the Federal Government were fulfilled, the idea of closure would not be an option.

Mamman said: “About 70 lecturers left, about five died and three are held hostage by Boko Haram. The admission figure of students has been dropping since insurgency started in 2012. We don’t know what will happen to the admission of students this year.“The exit of some lecturers has affected research and learning because some are specialists in their fields. Usually, such exodus affects accreditation of some programmes and courses.

ASUU Threatens to Shut Down All Universities over UNIMAID Staff Abduction

Boko Haram attacked and abducted UNIMVia
 workers on Tuesday, July 25, while on oil exploration assignment in Borno state.
Abducted Unimaid staffs
Abducted Unimaid Staff's
Following the abduction of University of Maiduguri staff by Boko Haram, the Association of Union of Universities has threatened to call for a nationwide strike in Nigerian Universities.

The President of the Association, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi said the strike would commence if the Federal Government does not strengthen security in the University of Maiduguri and ensure the release of the abducted staff members.

Ogunyemi said “Our union is no doubt saddened by the UNIMAID incident. It is a concrete manifestation of our fears all along. As far back as June 9, we expressed our fears about the alarming security situation in the Maiduguri metropolis and particularly in UNIMAID. Those fears we expressed are beginning to manifest concretely.
The situation could have been better handled. Our members, who were carrying out their legitimate duties were made vulnerable to this experience.
‘‘We have told the government to take the necessary steps and get our members in captivity released or else, we may be forced to call out our members. But we are getting assurances now that the government is going to do the needful.”

   Commenting on ASUU's threat, a Lagos State University lecturer, Dr Saheed Adeyemo, who is currently in Malaysia said the Union's warning to Federal Government is a good attempt to protect its own and make the government to be alive to its responsibility.

 Every association of union has the right to protect its own and one of the ways by which you can make a government to take an action on an issue sometimes is to issue a strong statement. However, they can not say so and act in earnest over such pronouncements. It is just to sensitize the government.
"As we know, whether the government is working on an issue or not, it is when people hear what they are doing that they will believe the government is taking a matter seriously. If you consider the abduction of the school boys in Lagos, it was because there were agitations from the public and right now the students have been released. Same thing with the Chibok girls. So, for ASUU to speak about their members, I don't think it is out of place. It is an attempt to make the government be alive to their responsibility because this is a security issue."

It would be recalled that the Boko Haram insurgents had on Tuesday, July 25, ambushed troops comprising of soldiers and members of the Civilian Joint Task Force escorting staff members of the university and Nigerian National Petroleum Commission staff who were carrying out oil exploration activities in Borno Yesu District of Magumeri Local government area of Borno state.

The insurgents during the attack killed soldiers, civilians and abducted three staff members of the University of Maiduguri.

The abducted trio according to the video the insurgent released on Thursday, July 28, are Yusuf Ibrahim, a lecturer, Geology department, University of Maiduguri; Haruna, a driver from the University of Maiduguri; and Dr Solomon a lecturer from the University of Maiduguri.

The lecturers were seen in the video begging the Federal Government to come to their aid.

University of Maiduguri has in recent times been repeatedly attacked by suicide bombers.
