The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) has directed its members in all chapters to hold a referendum on suspension of the ongoing strike in the nation’s polytechnics.

Mr Usman Dutse, ASUP National President, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday in Lagos that the referendum would hold between this week and next week.

He said that the referendum was to assess the Federal Government’s efforts at ending the lingering strike in polytechnics.

“The union had received some proof and documents as requested from the Federal Government to back up its claim of payment of N16.4 billion as salary shortfalls.

“Although the union has not received all documents, it has resolved and directed all chapters to hold referendum between now and next week, as that will decide the next line of action.

“They have given us some of the documents, proof but not all. We are going to the ministry now to pursue somethings.

“After the referendum, the National Executive Council will meet to decide next line of action,” he said.

NAN reports that Malam Adamu Adamu, Minister of Education, had on Jan. 31, in Abuja said the Federal Government had released N16.4 billion to settle outstanding salary arrears of staff in the country’s tertiary institutions.

He also said another N30 billion had been raised as revitalisation funds.

Adamu said this during the “Sixth edition of the Ministerial Press Briefing” that disbursement was ongoing through the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation to solve issues and demands raised by ASUU and ASUP.

Adamu said that the government had resolved all issues and awaits the academic unions to also call off their strike in the coming days, especially ASUU and ASUP.

ASUP has since denied receipt of any payment, either by document or proof of the said N16.4 billion by the Federal Government.

The union commenced its indefinite strike on Dec. 12, 2018, following the failure of government to meet various agreement reached with the union since 2009.

JAMB speaks on ‘biometric verification’ for UTME candidates

Published

By

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says there is no exemption on biometric verification for all candidates of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

The board made this known in its Vol. 1, No 11 weekly Bulletin of the Office of the Registrar and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Abuja.

According to the board, biometric verification will be the only mode of admittance of candidates into its examination centres nationwide, saying that examination officials must adhere strictly to the rules.

“Exemption mode is not allowed for any candidate, therefore, no biometric verification, no examination and no candidate should be kept waiting if he or she cannot be verified but should be directed to contact JAMB.

“There is no other attendance register apart from the biometric verification, it will also serve as the attendance register during the examination as photo albums will only carry pictures with no marking points for either present or absent.

“All examination officials, including security agents are to ensure compliance with all guidelines, rules and regulations on the examination as strict adherence to the guide on compulsory biometric verification of every candidate is required,” the board said.

It also listed prohibited items into the examination halls to include: watches, pen or Biro, mobile phones or similar electronic device, books, calculators, smart eye lenses, ear pieces, recorders and jewelry.

Others are: key holders, ATM cards, erasers, Bluetooth devices, microphones among others, while adding also that spy reading glasses must be scrutinised.

DAILY POST recalls that the board had recently scheduled to commence the 2019 exercise, starting with its mock examination on April 1 and the main examination on April 11, across its Computer Based Test (CBT) centres, nationwide.
