Oyo State Police Arrested Fake UI professor


A 54-year-old man, who pretended to be a professor of Animal Husbandry at the University of Ibadan, has been arrested by the Oyo State Police Command.

He was apprehended after he fraudulently collected N1m from a man under the pretext of manufacturing animal multivitamins for him.
Parading the suspect, the state Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Odude, said the suspect, Olayinka Emmanuel, acted in connivance with an accomplice, Adegoke Adewumi, 53, to obtain the sum from Kolawole Kamorudeen.

He said, “The duo lied to the victim that they were manufacturers of animal multivitamins. Believing them, the suspect parted with the sum only to later discover that the so-called multivitamins supplied to him were grinded green beans.
“The suspect told police during investigation that the label was printed somewhere in the Oluwole area of Lagos State.
“Four cartons of the green beans branded as multivitamin were recovered in the course of investigation.”

Accomplice of the fake professor, Adewumi, said he went into the business in order to make ends meet because he was jobless.
“We actually used animal supplement to produce the vitamin, but we added green beans to improve the quantity for more money. I am jobless and that is why I went into the business. The professor is my boss,” he said.

JAMB gets FG’s backing to stop leakages of questions


The Federal Executive Council (FEC), presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari, on Wednesday, approved N133 million for the purchase of infrastructure and pieces of equipment for the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).

Malam Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, disclosed this when he briefed State House correspondents on the outcome of the Council’s meeting in Abuja.
He said the purchase of the Computer Based Test facilities would enable JAMB take total control of its examination processes to avoid leakages that had hitherto characterised the conduct of examinations by the board.

“JAMB had ran their tests for people who seek admissions to universities using computer based testing agencies and this has been attended by leakages over time and in order to stop all of that JAMB has begun to set up their own infrastructure for conducting those examinations.
“While they have realized that they had not sufficiently covered the ground they have requested, as they did today, for government to buy-up one of the CBT organization for N133 million.
“They bought over the infrastructure, equipment and the building
“So, the effort is that JAMB will want to take total control of all these examination processes in order to avoid leakages that had in the past attended their own examinations”, Shehu added.

JAMB sets new date for rescheduled examinations for over 12,000 candidates

JAMB has announced a new date for the rescheduled Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations

– The UTME would be taken by over 12,000 candidates

– These candidates are expected to sit for the mop up examinations in few of its centres across the country

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Sunday, May 20, said that it had set May 26 for rescheduled Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) for more than 12,000 candidates across the country.

The Board’s head of media, Fabian Benjamin, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.

According to Benjamin, more than 12,000 candidates are expected to sit for the mop up examinations in few of its centres across the country.

This category of candidates, he explained, are those whose biometrics were not captured during the initial period of the UTME in March.

He said: “It would also include those, who are yet to see their results since the end of the examinations in March till date and have not been involved in any form of malpractice.

“It will also include those, who were unable to print out their e-slip before the earlier examinations and those whose centres were cancelled for suspected malpractices.”

According to him, “There are centres that were cancelled because of suspicious activities but the board was unable to identify the actual culprits.”

However, he said that those, who were involved and caught in illicit acts and centres where a case of malpractice has been established against them would not partake in the rescheduled examinations.

He advised candidates, who might have fallen into any of the categories qualified for the examination to print their e-slips from Monday, May 21.

NAN recalls the board had earlier promised to reschedule the examinations for some candidates whose cases were exceptional, adding that candidates, who fall under such categories would be contacted before then.

Oloyede said the regularised admission was for students who had scored below cut-off marks, among various irregularities.
He also said that many universities and other tertiary institutions had engaged in the irregular admission of candidates for 10 years.

JAMB Gives Reason why They Remove Results From Portal


The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said that the 2018 Unified Tertiary University Examinations (UTME) candidates who could no longer access their results might have had their results withheld.
The Board’s Head of Media, Dr Fabian Benjamin disclosed this in an interview with newsmen on Monday in Abuja.
Some candidates have earlier, cried foul following the removal of their released results from the website of the Board, after initially accessing it.
The candidates complained that the site displayed, “You do not have any result yet” or “you did not write the examination,” after such results were earlier published.
According to Benjamin, the board may reschedule the examinations for some whose cases are exceptional but some results may have been withheld.
Once you don’t see your result after a while it means it has been withheld.
“However, there are exceptions and the board intends to reschedule the examinations for those who fall in that category but they would be contacted before then.”
He explained that the board was still working to release other results.
He also noted that the board would continually give an update to the general public on its latest developments as time goes on, especially if there are any changes in the system.
Benjamin also enjoined those who intend to change their choice of institutions before the 2018/19 admissions process begins, to visit the board’s site and follow the procedure as displayed.
He said the process has been ongoing and costs N2, 500 only and can only be processed online, just like every other process of the board.
 

JAMB withholds 111,981 UTME results

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board on Tuesday said the results of 111,981 candidates who sat for the 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination had been withheld for “further screening” while it had released 1,502,978 results.

The JAMB’s Head of Public Affairs, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, who stated this in a release, noted that the results of the 350 blind candidates, who took the 2018 UTME, had yet to be released.

The PUNCH had exclusively reported on Monday that the board would release the results of 1.3 million candidates on Monday nationwide, after they had gone through all security checks and found to be without malpractice.

The JAMB spokesperson said on Tuesday that 1.5 million results had been released while 111,981 were withheld for further screening.

Benjamin said, “After viewing all CCTV footages during the conduct of the 2018 UTME and considering reports from our supervisors, monitors and other independent Nigerians, JAMB has released the results of 1,502,978 candidates.

“1,652,825 candidates had indicated interest in the examination by registering for the 2018 UTME. Also, 112,331 results are yet to be released out of which 350 are the results of the blind candidates which would be released soon and 111,981 results withheld for further screening.

“The figures above exclude foreign candidates whose examination will be conducted in April.”

2018 UTME: JAMB speaks on results as exams end


The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has urged its 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) candidates to patiently await the results of the just concluded examinations.
The Head of Media of the Board, Fabian Benjamin, stated this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday in Abuja.
He said the board was working diligently to ensure that the results are processed and posted on the board’s website soonest.
Mr. Benjamin said modalities were being put in place to ensure all the results are transparent and accurate.
He reiterated that the board was delaying some of the results because each has to undergo total scrutiny before being posted on its website to avoid cancellations later.
According to him, some of the results would be ready by Monday, March 19.
He also assured that all technical difficulties encountered in accessing the website were being addressed.
NAN reports that a number of candidates, who sat for the examinations earlier, were yet to receive their results.
While some said that they received the reply of “your results are not ready yet”, others complained that the site says “you did not register for this examinations.’’
NAN also reports that the examination, which was scheduled to end on Saturday, March 17, ended on Friday, March 16.
