Harvard Revokes Teenager's Admission Over Racist Comment He Made At 16
An 18 year-old teenager who got admitted to Havard has lost his admission after a racist comment he made when he was 16 surfaced.

Kyle Kashuv who is one of the survivors of the 2018 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting that left 17 students and teachers dead,  made some racist comments few months before the massacre in Parkland, Florida and the comments recently resurfaced and cost him dearly.

Kyle, a gun rights activist, was admitted to Harvard earlier this year but his admission has been rescinded after the screenshots of him using racial slurs surfaced.
 Kyle's classmates had accused him of repeatedly using the N-word.

University of Ibadan (UI), on its part, has said the institution will have nothing to do with the national minimum cut-off mark.


“For the avoidance of doubts in the minds of our prospective admission seekers, their parents and guardians, our alumni ans alumnae and the general public, the minimum mark for any course at the University of Ibadan, and all its affiliared institutions, remains 200 out of the minimum of the maximum of 400.


“This has been the position of the Senate of the University since the matriculation examinations into Nigerian Universities commenced in 1978,” Prof. Idowu Olayinka, VC, UI stated.

UTME: We've Not Released Any General Minimum Cut-off Marks Yet

UTME: We've Not Released Any General Minimum Cut-off Marks Yet

UTME: We've Not Released Any General Minimum Cut-off Marks Yet
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says it has not published the national and general minimum cut-off marks for placement of candidates into the nation’s tertiary institutions as being speculated in some quarters.

 The board’s Head, Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin, disclosed this in an interview yesterday in Lagos.
There is no truth behind such speculations, he said adding that fraudulent elements were behind the development with a ploy to defraud innocent Nigerians, especially the candidates.
Benjamin said the cut-off marks could only be arrived at with the inputs of critical stakeholders in the education sector sheduled for days ahead.

“We want to seize this opportunity to caution the public especially candidates, not to allow themselves to be swindled by these desperate individuals that are peddling this rumour.

“The board is yet to come up with any cut-off mark for placements into the various tertiary institutions across the country. The cut-off marks cannot be decided upon without the input of critical stakeholders of the education sector at an elaborate policy meeting,” he said.

Benjamin explained that the next policy meeting would be holding on Tuesday, June 11, at Gbongan in Osun. The spokesman noted that already, preparations for the meeting had been concluded, adding that officials of the Ministry of Education were expected to attend.
According to him, other key stakeholders were also expected to grace the occasion, to determine the national cut-off mark. He said that it was only after this had been achieved that the candidates would be availed of the cut-off marks of the various tertiary institutions across the country.

The cut-off marks are the minimum expectation for every institution and that does not mean by attaining such cut-off mark, it therefore means an automatic placement into schools of first choice. “We therefore want to appeal to the general public, especially the candidates not to fall prey to fraudsters. 

The board will continue to provide information to the public on its processes and activities at every stage,” Benjamin assured. Over 1.8 million candidates had registered for the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME)

EFCC Arrests Woman, 5 Others Who Claim Snake Swallowed Jamb’s N35m

EFCC Arrests Woman, 5 Others Who Claim Snake Swallowed Jamb’s N35m

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC arraigns woman, 5 others who claim snake swallowed JAMB ’s N35 million.

EFCC arraigns woman, 5 others who claim snake swallowed JAMB’s N35m
EFCC will tomorrow arraign controversial official of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, Philomena along with the other five officials of JAMB in the matter are Samuel Umoru, Yakubu Jekada, Daniel Agbo, Priscilla Ogunsola, and Aliyu Yakubu.

Philomena, who is a JAMB official in Benue State, became popular when she made an outlandish claim that a mysterious snake swallowed about N35 million cash arising from sale of e-JAMB cards in the state.

EFCC is prosecuting the controversial JAMB official on an eight-count charge, following her refusal to provide the management of JAMB the true information on the financial status of JAMB e-cards supplied to the Benue Zonal office between 2014 and 2016.

 An EFCC investigator, who probed her and seven other heads of JAMB offices nationwide, where widespread stealing took place, noted that instead of Philomena rendering account on the said N35 million, being the shortfall of unremitted e-JAMB cards in connivance with other officials, she claimed that a mysterious snake swallowed the money.

Philomena ought to know that the shortfall in the unremitted e-JAMB cards, which she claimed disappeared as a result of manipulation from the kingdom of darkness, is false and untenable before the law.

“The shameful action of the suspect breaches Section 139 (a) of the Penal Code Law,” the officer said.

One of the charges in case No. CR/339/19 filed before the FCT High Court and dated May 17, 2019 reads:

That you, Samuel Sale Umoru and Philomena Chieshe between August 2014 and July 2016 in Abuja within the jurisdiction of this Honourable court conspired among yourselves to misappropriate funds belonging to the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, an agency of the Federal Government of Nigeria and you, therefore, committed an offence contrary to Section 97 (2) of the Penal Code Law”.

“That you, Samuel Sale Umoru and Philomena Chieshe between August 2014 and July 2016 in Abuja within the jurisdiction of this Honourable court while being state coordinator and clerical officer of the state office of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, committed criminal breach of trust in respect of the said properties and you thereby committed an offence contrary to and punishable by Section 315 of the Penal Code Law.

“That you, Samuel Sale Umoru and Philomena Chieshe between August 2014 and July 2016 in Abuja and Benue State within the jurisdiction of this Honourable court while being state coordinator and clerical officer of the state office of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, an agency of the Federal Government of Nigeria and you, therefore, committed an offence contrary to Section 308 of the Penal Code Law and punishable under Section 309 of the same law. – Lailasnews reports

UTME: ICPC partners JAMB, Launches Probe Into Malpractices

UTME: ICPC partners JAMB, Launches Probe Into Malpractices

Investigations has begun by the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC) into alleged malpractices during the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) conducted across the country.

A member of Board of the commission, Mrs Olubukola Balogun, made this known in an interview with newsmen in Abuja on Tuesday.

She said that the commission was investigating the alleged malpractice by candidates, who were sometimes aided by their parents and professional examination writers.

According to her, the commission is doing a lot to investigate the matter.

“We have the mandate for investigation, prosecution and prevention.

“We are putting everything together for JAMB. I can assure you that we will get there.
“The commission is going to know what happened and how we can prevent it in the future,” she said.

Balogun said that anyone found culpable would be prosecuted, insisting that “those that err, after our investigation, we are going to prosecute’’.

Describing examination malpractice as “an act of corruption’’, the board member said that such activity would not be allowed to thrive in the country’s education system.

“There is a lot of corruption everywhere; therefore, we have to go back to the drawing board and we have to all come together for this fight against the scourge,” she said.

Recall, it had reported that JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, had at an event revealed that some desperate parents were in the habit of paying up to 10 persons to sit for the examination for just one child of theirs.

“You will discover that such a candidate who goes to university with his or her picture is not the same as the one who wrote the UTME, neither was he nor she the one who wrote the WASSCE.

“So, what is going to happen is for us to find a way of ensuring more synergy between the assessment bodies and the institutions, in such a way that all sharp practices are nipped into the bud.

“We are also looking at building mega CBT centres for our examinations but this we cannot also achieve alone.

“We will also encourage genuine private investors who will now be the body that will accredit its own sub groups, just as we will also bring in the Computer Registration Council of Nigeria,” Oloyede said. (NAN)

UBEC Executive Secretary Says Only 57 % Of 1.5m Basic Education Teachers Are Qualified

UBEC Executive Secretary Says Only 57 % Of 1.5m Basic Education Teachers Are Qualified

UBEC Executive Secretary Says 57 % Of 1.5m Basic Education Teachers Are Qualified
The Executive Secretary of Universal Basic Education Commission, Dr. Hamid Bobboyi has revealed that only 57 per cent of the nation’s basic education teachers are qualified.

Bobboyi also said that there was an increase from 841,716 in 2008 to 1.5 million in 2018 in the population of the teachers.

Bobboyi disclosed this in Kaduna on Saturday, in a paper entitled, “State of Basic Education in Nigeria: Prospect and Challenges”.

The paper was presented at the ongoing two-day policy retreat with the theme, “The State of Basic Education in Kaduna State: Prospects and Challenges”, organised by the state’s Ministry for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs.

The UBEC boss said that the percentage represented a decline from 76 per cent in 2008 to 57 per cent in 2018.

He said that in spite of the huge investment in the sector, basic education was still characterised by poor learning outcomes, unqualified teachers and acute infrastructure deficit among others.

He also expressed concern over the increasing rate of enrollment in basic schools, which he said was not proportional to the available infrastructure and funding.

“For example, enrolment in pre-primary school (Early Child Care Development Education) has increased from 2.1 million in 2006 to 2.7 million in 2010 and skyrocketed to 7.2 million in 2018, representing 167 per cent increase.

“Also, enrolment in primary schools, which declined from 24.2 million in 2006 to 21.9 million in 2010, equally increased to 27.9 million in 2018, indicating a 27 per cent increase.

“The story was no different in Junior Secretary schools where enrolment also increased from 3.6 million in 2006 to 4.6 million in 2010 and further increased to 6.8 million in 2018, representing 49 per cent increase.

He also said that enrollment in public primary schools constituted 83 per cent in contrast with 17 per cent in private primary schools.

Jamb Releases Results Of 1.7m Candidates, Blacklists 116 Centres For Malpractices

Jamb Releases Results Of 1.7m Candidates, Blacklists 116 Centres For Malpractices

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board has released the results of 1,792,719 candidates out of the 1,886,508 who sat for the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculations Examinations in April.

Announcing the results in Abuja on Saturday, the JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, said 34,120 results were withheld, including the results of 15,145 candidates which were being further clarified  as ‘identical twins and siblings.’


He explained further that 59,667 candidates were absent during the exams.
Oloyede stated, “A total of  1,826,839 sat for the UTME. Today, we are releasing the results of 1,792,719 candidates.
Some 34,120 results are being withheld, including the results of 15,145 candidates being further clarified  as identical twins and siblings.”

The board stated that the UTME, which was conducted between April 11 and 17, 2019 across the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, was painstaking, describing it as a success story.

The JAMB registrar disclosed that 116 exam centres had been blacklisted, including a Computer-based Test centre in Akokwa in Delta State which bribed exam officers with N1.7m.


We have recovered the payment voucher and the concerned staff are being investigated,  but they claimed that they received the bribe because their lives were in danger,” Oloyede stated.

He noted that the exams recorded multiple registrations, pointing out that a candidate, for instance, registered 23 times for the examination.

Oloyede said, “A total of 116 centres have been de-listed or suspended. Out of this number, 18  have been sanctioned by the Governing Board of JAMB with suspension for between one and three years for registration-related misconduct.”


He directed candidates to send ‘RESULT’ to the short code, 55019, on their handsets, adding that they did not need to patronise a cyber cafe to check their results.

Jamb Plans To Publish Names Of Popular Politicians Who Cheated During UTME

Jamb Plans To Publish Names Of Popular Politicians Who Cheated During UTME

Jamb Announces Plan To Publish Names Of Prominent Politicians Who Cheated During Utme

"It has been discovered that some highly ranked politicans in Nigeria didn't actually sit for the UTME examination by themselves" : Jamb Registrar, Ishaq Oloyede said.

In a statement released on Friday at the 23rd annual seminar of the Nigerian Academy of Education. The Registrar said the outcome of its probe into examination fraud between 2009 and 2019 will shock many Nigerians.

Oloyede said although the board may not be able to punish the culprits because they have already left the system, it would go ahead to publish their names in order to shame them.

He also said the board has hired a Senior Advocate of Nigeria to conduct the prosecution of more than 100 persons caught in various malpractices during the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), which held between April 11 and 18, and who were arrested by security operatives across the country –  Lindaikejisblog reported


Freshreporters News understood that the registrar did not name the SAN leading the prosecution of the errant UTME candidates and professional examination fraudsters. He also did not state the day the 2019 UTME results would be released. Oloyede said the board was amused by the insinuation that its server had crashed. Such comments, he said, were amusing to members of the board.

"If I were to be punishing every staff of JAMB that is committing infractions, I will not focus on the assignment. I will be going from one disciplinary committee to the other and my attention will be diverted. And that is why I go for the shortest route: once you are caught to have committed one infraction, you will not be assigned with examination duties again. It is a privilege, which I can withdraw.

“If you are that bad that I don’t want to see your face around me, I will transfer you to another place. If we have to take disciplinary action against all of them, look at it, today, we have not less than 100 people in police cells across the country who were caught for examination malpractices.

“I have appointed a Senior Advocate of Nigeria who is a former Solicitor-General to help me oversee all these so that the suspects can be brought to book. And my Director of Legal asked me, what offences should we charge these people for; for multiple registration? And I said, why can’t we go to the Examination Malpractice Act?

“So, my problem has started with having to draft the charges, despite the fact that we have evidence against them. That is the beginning of the problem. I will now ask to be paying my staff to travel out of Abuja to be testifying in court as they are adjourning month after month the cases, and we will be wasting money and time on transport" the registrar said.

He said that with all of these, the university management was on the path to making the institution greater.

“The strong understanding that research was one of the core obligations of a university and the realisation that government or university could not singlehandedly fund research, management had in the last one year attempted to raise awareness about the need for our faculty members to apply and attract more research grants to the institution, especially through multi-disciplinary research.

“We have, however, strengthened our research centres and given them the mandate to pursue research that can attract grants from multi-national corporations and government agencies.

“To further advance research in our university, our Central Research Laboratory has been better equipped in the last one year through a donation of a Polyurethane Laboratory worth over N20 million,” he said.

See The 67 Professors Striving For The Post OF VC, University of Nigeria Nsukka

Upto 67 professors are striving to replace Vice Chancellor of University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN) in June.

FreshReporters learnt that the incumbent Vice Chancellor, Professor Ben Ozumba, will be completing his tenure on the 14th of June therefore the post will be vacant.
Though the university management had few months past announced the vacancy for the post of Vice Chancellor, to be specific - six months to the end of the tenure of Professor Ozumba.

Meanwhile, one out of the 67 aspirants who had interest in the post will be selected by the Governing Council as the new Vice-Chancellor.
Among them are some key officers of the university and others are professors from outside the university's border.

Top ranking contenders for the post which include Professor Charles Igwe, the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Administration and Professor (Mrs.) Edith Nwosu, the Deputy Vice-Chancellor in charge of University of Nigeria Enugu Campus (UNEC).
Then Others includes Professor Ken Oforkansi, who is the Chairman of Senate Ceremonials and Professor (Mrs.) Joy Ezeilo, who the Dean of Law Faculty in the institution.

Some professors in the university, who spoke with newsmen, said the new Vice-Chancellor may likely emerge from the four professors earlier mentioned in this report.

According to our sources, the DVC Administration, Professor Igwe, appears to be running on familiar turf, having been saddled with the day to day running of the university, in the absence of Professor Ozumba, who had a reputation of globetrotting.

However, the undoing of Igwe, a Professor of Agriculture, may the fact that he hails from Anambra State like the outgoing Vice Chancellor.

Although a very young Professor of Pharmacy, Oforkansi, who equally hails from Anambra State, may also be caught in the web of indigene-ship, like Igwe.

It was also gathered that the two female professors among the top contenders may not be having strong affinity of defeating some other candidates. Professor Ezeilo is said to hail from Anambra State but is married to an Enugu man while Professor Nwosu hails from Imo State.
According to a source who said; the incumbent Vice Chancellor still have his own preferred successor in his desire.

A prominent community leader and Special Assistant to the Enugu State Governor on Market Matters, while addressing the people, he stressed on the need for Nsukka to produce the next Vice-Chancellor of the University as the incumbent vice-chancellor Prof Benjamin Ozumba winds up his tenure June this year.

Nsukka can’t continue with minor appointments such as security staff and gardener jobs with towering degrees while other citizens from different parts of the country occupy vantage positions in the university which remains the only feasible industry in the zone since 1960.

“We have to go all out to achieve the dreams of having a Nsukka professor as the next vice chancellor of UNN for the first time,” he said.

He further said that there is a need for synergy and cooperation by Igbo Nsukka to see that the position does not elude the people of Nsukka at large.
