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Kyle, a gun rights activist, was admitted to Harvard earlier this year but his admission has been rescinded after the screenshots of him using racial slurs surfaced.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.

This is coming after the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) and stakeholders of tertiary institutions agreed on a benchmark of 160.

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
