Lecturers under the auspices of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) at the University of Ibadan have warned Distance Learning Centre (DLC) students of the university against coming to the institution.

The lecturers noted that this warning became necessary because the union is still on strike.

DAILY POST reports that this is coming amidst rumour that UI has pulled out of the ongoing ASUU strike.

ASUU has, however, warned students against coming to the institution for any academic activity.

The union in a statement made available to DAILY POST on Wednesday, advised parents against releasing their wards for the purported resumption at its distance learning unit.

ASUU Chairman at the University of Ibadan, Professor Ayoola Akinwole in the statement, disclosed that members of the union would not be available for both physical and virtual teaching.

He explained that members of the union are on total and comprehensive strike as directed by the National leadership of the union.

Akinwole added that the strike embarked upon by the union was aimed at getting the best resources for training, teaching, research.

“The attention of the leadership of ASUU-UI has been drawn to mischievous news in circulation with insinuation that UI has pulled out of the ongoing ASUU Strike due to the management of the University of Ibadan Distance Learning Centre announcing resumption of academic activities.

“As such, members of ASUU, University of Ibadan branch will not be available for teaching (both physical and virtual), examination exercises, and attendance of statutory meetings of any kind until the National Executive Council (NEC) of our Union directs otherwise,” he said.

JAMB introduces double fingerprints for 2023 UTME

Published

on

Theheute-

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says it has adopted new guidelines to ensure the seamless conduct of next year’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

The board revealed the new guidelines in the latest edition of the weekly bulletin of the office of the registrar on Monday.

JAMB introduced double fingerprints, where a candidate is expected to register at least two fingers.

The exam body said any finger may be used for biometric verification before entering the examination hall on the appointed date.

The board also said candidates with bad fingerprints would be scheduled for the exam as “exemption candidates.”

It warned that some cybercafes and tutorial centres had been prohibited from participating in UTME.

The board also introduced the CBT centre accreditation to vet centres based on whether or not they meet the board’s new requirements which include the use of laptop computer systems with a specified RAM capacity.

Ishaq Oloyede, the JAMB registrar, also announced the introduction of biometric accreditation for CBT centre registration officers which he said will now be captured ahead of the exercise.

He said the board would consider separating UTME registration from that of Direct Entry (DE) starting from 2023.

According to Oloyede, the idea of the separation is to further consolidate its data collection efforts.

Earlier in the month, JAMB said it would no longer be conducting mop-up exercises for UTME candidates.

Mop-up exercise is usually held for candidates who could not participate in the UTME during the period of the exercise for some verified reasons.
