JAMB: Striking Non-academic Staff Threatens To Disrupt 2018 UTME

This year’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination

(UTME), will begin on Friday.

It is scheduled to hold from March 9 to March 17

Ugwoke said that the threat became imperative as the Federal

Government had continued to renege on the agreement it

entered with the unions.

According to him, “since our strike continues, JAC has

decided that no activity will take place in the universities.”

“This is because if we are on strike and you expect our

members to come and supervise JAMB or come to operate

their machines like the computers, that means we are

breaking the strike already.

“JAC has also decided that to redraw their assistance they

would not go to work. So all I know is that as long as we are

on strike, JAC has decide that there will be no exam.

“Our members will not participate and they will make sure that

the exam does not hold in the universities that is the position

of JAC, ‘’ he said.

He noted that JAC has also decided to hold a mega mass

protest rally on Thursday, March 8, to sensitise the public on

the issue of alleged corruption and the social injustices in the

Nigerian university system.
