'FG is confused, inconsistent and has no right to impose new admission rules' - ASUU


The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), University of Ibadan chapter, has said that the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) is acting beyond its powers when it released the admission guidelines for Nigerian universities.
ASUU chairman at the university, Dr. Deji Omole, said that only the Senate in Nigerian Universities can create admission modalities and determine which suits their institution.
Reacting to the 2016 admission guidelines recently released by JAMB, Omole said that Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, and JAMB Registrar, Prof. Dibu Ojerinde, are confused and inconsistent. The reason being that, at first a decision was made to ban the collection of payment through the conduction of Post-UTME, but these new guidelines involve a structure which requires payment of screening fees that is designed favour the children of the rich against the poor.
Omole added that the 'newly' released point – based scoring system is not new as it was innovated and used at the University of Ibadan for five years and abandoned.

He said, “JAMB is acting beyond its mandate which is to conduct and release results. The Senate of universities has the right to determine the model or guideline to adopt to admit their students from the pool of candidates sent to it by JAMB.



I've even gone so far as to verbalize it specifically, time is too precious to waste on trivial arguments and negativities. I'd rather get on to the more fun and rewarding stuff right away!
