The University of Lagos (UNILAG) has banned heavily-tinted vehicles ahead of the restart of physical classes.

The institution said the resolution was reached after a review of the security challenges in Nigeria, including attacks on schools.

The Deputy Vice-Chancellor Research and Academics, Prof. Oluwole Familoni, announced the decision on Friday.

Familoni addressed the media on UNILAG’s May 9 resumption for the second semester of the 2019/2020 academic session.

 

The VC assured that UNILAG was taking necessary steps to protect students and members of staff.

“We are in collaboration with security agencies for increased presence on campus. We also have our own intelligence that is unknown to anyone,” he said.

Familoni disclosed that more vehicles would be provided for security patrol on campus. The lighting system has been improved, with additional camera surveillance.

The management appealed to students to be security conscious at all times and move in groups especially at night.

The DVC stressed that only students who meet laid down conditions would be allowed into halls of residence.

They must have officially allocated and paid bed spaces registered in the halls for the session.

Aside from observing COVID-19 safety protocols, students must present proof of allocation – Hall Pass or Confirmation Slip – for the 2019/2020 Session, and submit a signed copy of the indemnity form.

They must present a bottle of sanitiser (minimum of 500ml), present at least 20 facemasks, and wear the facemasks into and out of hostels at all times.

UNILAG students are allowed to bring and register with hall staff, personal mattresses, lockers and table/wall fans that meet hall specifications.

However, they must not be caught promoting overcrowding in rooms. Squatters and floaters are no longer tolerated, according to Familoni.

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has released the results of the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination conducted on June 3 across the country.

Spokesperson of the Board, Dr Fabian Benjamin in a statement, on Wednesday in Abuja, advised the candidates who sat for the examination to visit the JAMB website to check their results.

He said: “A total of 160,718 candidates indicated interest to sit the examination but only 62,780 turned out for the mock exercise whose results are now released,” he said.

The mock examination is designed by the Board to prepare candidates for the actual UTME scheduled to take place between June 19 and July 3, 2021, was administered by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, in all centres nationwide.

Speaking during the conduct of the exercise, Dr Fabian Benjamin, told journalists at the end of the exercise in Abuja that the essence of the mock examination was to test the capacity and suitability of the centres.

He noted that the exercise conducted nationwide was hitch-free, except in Dominion International School, Jabi, Abuja where the centre was gutted by fired and candidates were redirected to other centres.

“We have over 160,617 candidates sitting for this mock examination in all our CBT centres. We received a report of complaint about capacity and stability of one or two centres.

“ Like in Abuja, there is a centre- Dominion International School, Jabi that caught fire during the examinations but everything has been put under control,” he said.

Benjamin said JAMB is adequately prepared for the main UTME which is due to take place between June 19 and July 3, 2021, proven by the success of the mock examination.

JAMB Extends UTME Registration

Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) has extended UTME registration to June 15 for candidates whose registration is incomplete to visit special centres to finish the process.

JAMB’s spokesman Fabian Benjamin stated this in a statement on Monday.

Mr Benjamin explained that the advice affected only those who could not complete their registration during the earlier scheduled registration period.

He pointed out that only candidates whose names were compiled after giving reasons for the incomplete registration process and had been contacted “are expected to visit the centres.”

JAMB further explained, “At the end of the period originally scheduled for the 2021/2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculations Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry (DE) registration on May 15, the registration period was extended.

“Another two weeks that elapsed on May 29 was given to accommodate candidates who, largely due to issues related with newly introduced pre-requisite of National Identification Number (NIN), could not register.”

It noted that an “additional extension of two weeks” was made to compile the list of all prospective candidates who, for any reason, were unable to register.

“The candidates who have not registered but have secured the profile codes and initiated the registration process are expected to visit the specially designated registration centres to complete the registration on Tuesday, June 15,” said JAMB.

Further commenting on the latest development, the exam body said, “Designated registration centre for each candidate is being forwarded to them through the GSM text (SMS) messages and also available on the website of the board (www.jamb.gov.ng) from 12 noon on Monday, June 14.

“The identification number on each form given to the candidates has been used to assign the candidates to their registration centres.

“Only candidates who have secured their profile codes are expected to visit the centres. Also, the names of the few who have not yet obtained their NIN or profile codes have been forwarded to NIMC and would be contacted as soon as they are cleared by NIMC.”

Each candidate posted to any non-JAMB-owned CBT centre, according to JMAB, will pay the registration fee of N1,000.

The 2021 UTME is scheduled to commence from June 19 to July 3.

However, the JMAB Registrar Ishaq Oloyede disclosed the possibility of conducting a second UTME for candidates with genuine registration challenges.

Mr Oloyede disclosed this on Wednesday in Lagos while monitoring the profiling of candidates with 2021 UTME registration challenges.
