FUT MINNA STUDENTS SHOCKED AS SCHOOL RESUMES 2 DAYS AFTER THE END OF FIRST SEMESTER EXAM

16:21:00 0
Senate Building of Federal University of Technology, Minna


Following the just completed first semester examination, most students hurried back to their various homes to spend some time with their loved ones before the commencement of the second semester only to realize that the break was far shorter than they imagined.

Right from the beginning of the semester, most students were already informed of the school's activities and resumption for the second semester which happened to be on the 8th of July, 2019, but considering the inability of the school to meet of with the proposed calendar during the first semester due to the ongoing ASUU strike at the time, they felt that the break was going to be extended to probably two to three weeks. This thought however, did not work out as the school management stuck to the calendar earlier prepared. The break only lasted for a day. This was quite different from how it was normally done as everyone had earlier expected.

The 100 level students who just got into the system and probably didn't go home for the Easter and Sallah break due to the distance did not at all find this interesting especially since they've not seen their loved ones for quite a while. and would probably not want to go home as that would mean spending a lot of money on transportation.

Some students who saw no need for them to go home either due to the distance, or some other reason best know to them had to stay back and find something to engage them while the lecture is yet to commence.

Though, the second semester has commenced, activities such as lectures is yet to commence as everyone (both those at home and in school) wait patiently for news on when lecture will begin.

JAMB REGISTRATION COMMENCES OFFICIALLY!!

19:15:00 0

It's been almost a year since the last Jamb examination was done and a lot of the here we are again, preparing for yet another.
Today, being the 10th of January, 2019, the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) begins the sales of the registration for the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

As was already stated by the registrar, the use of Cyber Cafe's for registration would not be done this year. Only accredited Computer Based Test (CBT) Centers. He urged all candidates to do their registration in any of the 718 accredited CBT Centers. This is done to minimize the excessive extortion of money from the candidates.

The price for the Jamb form is ₦ 3,500, though, other charges such as the English Novel ("Sweet Sixteen" by Bolaji Abdullahi) which would cost ₦ 500 and other charges such as the registration fee which would be ₦ 700. In total, the registration for the Jamb examination would be ₦ 4,700.

The period for the registration will last for a period of 6 weeks.

HOW TO REGISTER FOR THE 2019 JAMB

The process of registering for Jamb has been made easy. To proceed with your Jamb registration, simply follow the procedure outlined below:

Create a Jamb profile. This is very important; you cannot proceed with the registration unless you have first created a profile.
You are to complete the online application form by supplying the required details such as name, e-mail address, L.G.A., academic qualification, etc.
At the CBT center, data such as your finger print, passport and other information will be taken to be used for your registration
Also, during the course of the registration, you are to provide your O-Level result. If however, you are yet to see your result, you are permitted to use Awaiting Result (pending when it is released)

Note:
To create your Jamb profile, simply text the following details to 55019
  • SURNAME
  • FIRST NAME
  • MIDDLE NAME
When the above detail is sent, you will receive a ten digit code (your profile code). This code is what you will then use to purchase the application document at the point of purchase.
After this, a form e-pin will be sent to the candidate via SMS.
You are to present this e-pin at any of the accredited Jamb CBT centers for registration
Below is a PDF containing all the accredited Jamb CBT Centers.




If your result status is still on "Awaiting Result" you are expected to update it as soon as it is released.
Do not forget to collect your Novel after the registration as you would need to study this for the examination.
After the registration, remember to collect your e-slip, this slip contains very vital information which wold be required before or during the examination. The slip will serve as an evidence that your registration has been completed.

“We have had an extensive session, looking at all the issues."
”In view of this, the government has promised to reach us as soon as possible with a written proposal on those areas we need further consultations. And when we receive that, we shall treat accordingly and get back to the appropriate quarters,” Prof Biodun Ogunyemi Said
Also, speaking after the meeting, Dr Chris Ngige, the Minister of Labour and Employment said that the government has reached an agreement with the striking lecturers. 
He added that the accountant general and the ministry of finance have confirmed with evidence that ₦15.4 billion had been released to public universities. 

Premium Times reported that Ngige also said President Buhari has approved the sum of 20 billion Naira to offset the outstanding arrears of the 2009 to 2012 verified earnings in the universities, also saying that the earned allowance will be released to ASUU as soon as the process is complete

The labour Minister also said the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan had an agreement to fund Nigerian Universities with ₦220 billion annually for six years starting from 2009.
He, however, said that the government would look for resources to meet the commitment adding that ASUU had been offered some token to show good faith.
Until then, the ASS strike will remain on

ASUU PROMISES TO CALL OFF THE ONGOING STRIKE SOON

20:07:00 0

In an interview with the press men, the president of the academic staff union, prof. Biodun Ogunyemi stated that after their meeting, they will conclude when the ASUU strike will be called off.

He told the news men that they would be having a meeting soon. He also went on to say that they will let Nigerians know of their outcome (their conclusion from the meeting).

It's been over  two weeks since they embarked on the industrial action, demanding the government to fulfill a promise they made in 2009, in the quest of resolving the ongoing strike as at that time and everyone (especially the new students) is worried as to when the strike would be called off. The questions everyone is asking is whether or not the strike will be called off before January 2019 or students can still go back to school this year.

The exact duration of the strike is not known at the moment and will only be certain after the meeting, if all things play well as the president of ASUU had stated.
