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.
