Post UTME Will Stand – ASUU Challenges FG

The Academic Staff Union of Universities,
ASUU, on Wednesday, kicked against the
Federal Government’s directive for tertiary
institutions to scrap the Post-Unified
Tertiary Matriculation Examination, Post-
UTME, for admission of candidates for the
2016/2017 academic session, saying the
quality of tertiary education in the country
could improve if the institutions are
allowed to regulate their students
admission process.
ASUU President, Comrade Biodun
Ogunyemi, said such freedom would
enhance the quality of education.
Recall that at a recent joint policy
meeting to decide the cut off mark for
students seeking admission into the
universities, the government announced
the scrapping of post-unified tertiary
matriculation examination (UTME).
The
Post
UTME
is the
second stage of screening usually
conducted by universities for the final
selection of candidates qualified for
admission for an academic session.
Minister of Education, Malam Adamu
Adamu had threatened to sanction any
university or tertiary institution found
conducting examinations under any guise
to admit students.
He further directed tertiary institutions
that had collected money from candidates
for such purposes to immediately refund it
or face appropriate sanctions.
The ASUU boss told NAN that such
directive encroached on the autonomy of
the institutions.
“I think government should give these
institutions the chance to regulate
themselves,” he said.
“They should decide for themselves, the
process they dim fit to admit their
students. The Senate of universities for
example, should decide on the process
they want to use in selecting candidates.
“We do not think it’s right for government
to decide the method of screening of the
candidates, indeed, we want to attain
some level of sanity and quality in the
system.”
The unionist added that government could
only come into the process by putting in
place the necessary guidelines as part of
their oversight functions.
According to him, it may not also be easy
for institutions that had already collected
money for the conduct of the post-UTME
or screening in whatever guise to refund
such money.
He added that this was because such
money could have been diverted to other
purposes.
Ogunyemi noted that most universities
were under-funded and therefore, might
have used some of the money to attend
to urgent needs of the institution.
“Some of the arguments raised in this
entire episode is that universities or
tertiary institutions were using the
conduct of such examination to make
money,” he said.
“But the truth is, these institutions are
poorly funded. If universities for example
are properly funded, will the vice-
chancellors be looking for other means of
making money?
“In the last seven months, university
workers have been receiving incomplete
salaries, that is, the disbursement of
funds for payment of salaries has always
been inadequate.
“When situations like this arise, the
managements will not be left with any
choice than to look inwards and seek
means of meeting such needs.
“And one of such strategies is by
conducting such examination.”
Ogunyemi noted that the state universities
were worst hit for many of them had yet
to receive subvention in the last one year.
“Actually we in ASUU frown at extortion of
any type from students or candidates but
the government too should be alive to its
responsibilities by providing the enabling
environment that will aid teaching, leaning
and research.”

University VCs Kick Against New Admission Screening Process

The Secretary General of Association of Vice-
Chancellors of State-Owned Universities,Michael Faborede has appealed to the Federal Government to allow the senate of the different tertiary institution in the country to
prescribe modalities for admission.
He made this call during the 4th Biennial Conference on the Committee of Pro-Chancellors of State-Owned Universities in
Nigeria held at the Tai Solarin University of
Education, Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State.
According to him, the federal government
should be careful in making pronouncements
on educational matters that would affect the
states and private universities.
He further called on the pro-chancellors to
support vice-chancellors in their effort towards
building a credible university system

Court Makes Announcement About Buhari’s Certificate

A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja will this
Thursday give its ruling on an application
seeking to stop judgment on an earlier ruling
dismissing the preliminary objection of
President Muhammadu Buhari in a suit
challenging his qualification for the 2015
presidential election.
ALSO READ: BUHARI WAEC CERTIFICATE
UPDATES
Justice Adeniyi Ademola, who had earlier
reserved ruling on the motion for this
Wednesday, had to adjourned to Thursday to
enable service to be delivered to parties in the
case.
When the matter was called up, parties in the suit were not present in court.
Justice Ademola, while suggesting that the absence of the parties
in the suit may be due to the possibility that they were
not served on the new adjourned date,
announced an adjournment to enable parties
to be served on the new adjourned date.
An Abuja based legal practitioner, Nnamdi
Nwokocha-Ahaiwe, had filed an application
asking the Federal High Court to nullify the
election of Buhari as President of Nigeria on
the grounds that he did not possess the
minimum academic requirement for the
position.
The plaintiff in the suit also alleged that
Buhari did not sit for the Cambridge West
African School Certificate (WASC) in 1961 as
he had earlier claimed.
But Buhari raised a preliminary objection to
the suit on the grounds that he was not
properly served.

10 Ways Not To Sleep in your Class

Stay Awake in Class. Having trouble
staying awake in class? Maybe the
lecturer is boring, or you just find yourself
nodding off after seating in one place for
more than one hour? Well we have you
covered with this great tips:
1. Bring a water bottle, and drink
plenty of H2O. Staying hydrated is a
key factor in staying awake. Try
putting ice in your water bottle; the
cold water will keep you lively and
alert.
2. Eat a snack. Bring an apple to class!
The natural sugar and the crunch of
an apple will help decrease the
fatigue.
3. Shed a layer. If it’s warm in your
classroom, you’re more likely to fall
asleep. So take off your jacket or
open a window to catch the cool
breeze.
4. Chew gum. Chewing gum is a
repetitive act that keeps the blood
flowing and takes your mind off the
tiredness.
5. Save the daydreaming for after
class. Daydreaming in a one-way
track to falling asleep! Taking notes
is one way of focusing. Whether it’s
by hand or on a laptop, jotting down
notes will help to keep your body
active and your mind focused on the
lecture.
6. Go to the bathroom. Walk off the
sleepiness by taking a trip to the
bathroom. The process of walking
will get the blood circulating again.
And don’t forget to take a stretch
break while you’re in the hallway.
7. Sit up and focus on your posture.
Roll your shoulders back and
remember not to slouch. Slouching
can cause unnecessary stress on
your muscles and lead to fatigue.
8. Tug on your earlobes. Yes, it sounds
odd, but it works! Due to acupoints
on your ears, this is a surefire way
to get the brain going.
9. Interact with your professor. Ask
questions! Listen to the lecture and
actively think of difficult questions to
raise. This will force you to focus on
what the professor has to say.
10. Don’t browse the web. Facebook
may keep you awake, but you won’t
be focusing on the class. You might
as well be asleep!

Maritime University To Resume Fully – Naval Chief Announces

The Nigerian Navy said on Tuesday that
the naval Maritime University in Ibuza,
Oshimili North Local Government Area of
Delta, would soon commence academic
work.
The Chief of Naval Staff (CNS), Vice-Adm.
Ibok-Ete Ibas, made the disclosure when
he visited the Nigerian Navy Ship (NNS)
Delta in Warri.
Ibas said that the process of obtaining
the required approval for already
constructed institution was being
concluded.
The
naval
chief
said
the
proposed university was initially conceived
as a Navy College.
Ibas explained that the university was
established in order to close academic
gap which had necessitated the Nigerian
Navy sending its personnel abroad to
acquire some special skills.
”The moment the Federal Executive
Council (FEC) grants the approval to
commence operations, the university will
start academic activities.
“It is true that the Navy is in the process
of obtaining the necessary clearance to
have it converted to a university that will
serve the navy as well as members of the
public.
“You will recall that the Navy undertakes
a lot of its courses abroad in some civil
institutions.
”So what the Navy has done is to go into
partnership with some foreign partners
who will assist us in establishing a school
that will cater for the needs of the Navy
in some areas we are currently deficient.
“The process of getting the university
licence is still on-going, we are contacting
all the relevant agencies of government
for approval,” he said.
Ibas also attributed the relative peace in
the Niger Delta region in respect of
insurgency to the dialogue approach
adopted by various organs of the
government.
”You will recall that different organs of
government have been dialoguing with the
militants concerned, while the military
maintains its posture of ensuring that
militant activities are curtailed.
”For us as the Navy, in peace and war
times, our duty is to ensure we police the
general maritime areas and ensure that
legitimate business thrives,” he said.
