JAMB Closes 2016 Admission Into Universities

The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board has shut the 2016 admissions to all federal and state universities, its Registrar/Chief Executive, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, said on Thursday.JAMB Closes 2016 Admission Into Universities

He, be that as it may, reported an expansion of admissions to polytechnics, monotechnics, colleges of education and private varsities.

He said, "Every single tertiary institution and the overall population are thus informed that the 2016 admission exercise into state funded universities closed on Wednesday November 30, 2016. Notwithstanding, the minister of education has affirmed an extension of two weeks (from December 1 to December 15, 2016) for all polytechnics, monotechnics, colleges of education and private universities

"All institutions concerned are encouraged to expeditiously process their proposals to JAMB inside the endorsed period."

As JAMB plans for the 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, Oloyede said, all owners of computer-based test centres had been welcome to apply online for accreditation.

He said, "The CBT centres are welcome to a meeting that will hold on Tuesday December 13, 2016. To take part in this meeting intrigued CBT centres owner are to enroll. The enrollment closes by 12.00pm on Monday December 12, 2016."

Oloyede prompted general society to disregard all sites and web-based social networking accounts acting like sales agents for 2017 UTME.

"JAMB has not initiated the sales of the 2017 UTME application forms and has not designated and won't name any specialist/or cybercafé as its operator. The public is instructed to be careful of fraudsters. JAMB encourages all candidates to dependably visit its site on for enrollment and other vital data. We approach all nationalists to support JAMB in upgrading access to and value in tertiary education in Nigeria," he said.

FRSC Denies Allegation of Recruiting 200 Staff

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Kebbi has denied allegation of the recruitment of 200 workers by the Corps.FRSC Denies Allegation of Recruiting 200 Staff

The Sector Commandant of the corps in the state, Mr James Mbatse, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Birnin Kebbi on Saturday that there was no recruitment during this time in the nation by the corps.

He depicted the allegation as unwarranted and mischievous, including that the gossip was going viral on social media.

"I wonder what here and there rumour mongers need to accomplish by composing untruths and share it via social media.

"There has not been any enrollment from the corps this year; and at whatever time there is such recruitment it must be open and on quota system so as not to dupe any state," he said.

Mbatse included that the main practice directed was the choice of 60 Special Marshals, bringing up that "the marshals will be chosen from the three senatorial regions of the state".

The authority said that for one to be qualified as a unique marshal, such a candidate must be 28 years or more and displayed energy and enthusiasm to serve.

He included that applicant must be acar owner and with sensible method for work. 

He said that any intending special marshal must also possess a valid driver’s licence and exhibit a working knowledge of the English language.

“Special marshals have equal rights as regular marshals to sanction arrest and prosecute traffic offenders,’’ he said.

He, therefore, called on the public to disregard any recruitment news that was not officially from the headquarters of the corps in Abuja.
