ASUU flays scrap­ping of post-UTME

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Mustapha Suleiman

The Aca­demic Staff Union of Uni­ver­si­ties (ASUU) has con­demned the fed­eral govern­ment’s de­ci­sion to scrap the post-Uni­ver­si­ties and Ter­tiary in­sti­tu­tions Ma­tric­u­la­tion Ex­am­i­na­tions.

ASUU pres­i­dent, Pro­fes­sor Bio­dun Ogun­yemi, said in Abuja yes­ter­day that the de­ci­sion did not serve the in­ter­est of Nige­ri­ans as the ex­am­i­na­tion con­ducted by JAMB is not cred­i­ble enough to war­rant the can­cel­la­tion of post UMTE tests.

He said the de­ci­sion was against the FGN/ ASUU agree­ment of 2009.

Ogun­yemi said the as­so­ci­a­tion, as an im­por­tant stake­holder in the univer­sity sys­tem, would con­tinue to draw the at­ten­tion of all con­cerned to the pos­si­ble threat to peace­ful de­vel­op­ment and growth of the Nige­rian ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem.
