The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board () says it will not rescind its decision on the use of biometrics in the conduct of its Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

This was contained in the board’s weekly bulletin issued on Sunday in Lagos, NAN reports

According to the bulletin, the importance of biometrics in the conduct of the board’s examination cannot be overemphasised.

It noted that the Biometrics Verification Machine (BVM) was introduced by the board in an attempt to get rid of the numerous forms of examination malpractice.

It said the BVM was a security mechanism used for the authentication of candidates’ identity as it provided access to the individual data, based on physiological characteristics.

“The core value of a biometric verification process lies in its ability to provide extra layers of security and protection against counterfeiting and impersonation.

“The increasing threat of identity fraud during the board’s UTME before the advent of the BVM necessitated its introduction for capturing biometrics of candidates to counter fraud.

“The candidate’s 10 fingers are captured during registration and are used as clearance to admit them into the examination hall.

“There are various types of biometric solutions but JAMB opted for fingerprint recognition, to eliminate all forms of infractions.

“Biometric security is surely a breakthrough for the board because the fingerprints recognition technology provides a greater degree of security as it is impossible to steal, forget, lose or compromise data already captured.

“Therefore, the adoption of biometrics in the conduct of our examination is here to stay,” the bulletin read.

It reassured candidates that their fingerprints would not be used for any purpose other than identification.

According to the bulletin, the benefits of the BVM are immense and indispensable to the assessment process.

ASUU strike: Lecturers issue fresh threat to Buhari govt

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has threatened to embark on a fresh industrial action if the Federal Government fails to show commitment towards implementing the Memorandum of Action.

ASUU National President, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi issued the threat during a briefing with the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu while giving an update on the ongoing renegotiation with the government over the contending N25 billion on Wednesday.

Ogunyemi said, “Since information on the amounts mentioned in the media went round, the ASUU has been inundated with enquiries on the union’s perspective to the story.

“Funding for the revitalisation of public universities has for years been of very high priority to ASUU.

“Reaching an agreement with the Federal Government has often been a frustrating journey for our union. It is often marked with protests, strikes and requires a conscious and focused engagement. The 2001 agreement, which gave birth to the 2009 agreement, was not an exemption. The exception here is the personality leading the government negotiation team.

“The current leadership of the government team clearly lacks the academic disposition and humility needed to undertake such task.

“Our members enjoy their work and hate to see any disruption in the smooth running of our universities. However, the level of frustration occasioned by the lackadaisical attitude of the government towards meeting the terms of the 2019 Memorandum of Action that was freely signed with our union is increasingly becoming unbearable.

“We, therefore, call on all Nigerian patriots, parents and students including the Nigeria Labour Congress to prevail on the government to keep to the terms of our agreement. Otherwise, our union should not be held responsible for any disruption in the system.”

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board () says it has concluded arrangements for the presentation of awards to five tertiary institutions.

The board’s Head, Media, and Information, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, made this disclosure to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Lagos.

According to Benjamin, the Vice-President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, would be doing the presentation on Thursday in Abuja at its maiden edition of the 2018 National Tertiary Admissions Performance Merit Award (NATAP-M).

The JAMB’s spokesman stated that the award was in recognition of the institutions’ compliance to admission guidelines.

“We want to honor these institutions for doing what is expected of them in the past years, in terms of admission performance.

“Again, we looked at the most subscribed, the number of foreigners admitted gender balancing and national spread

“You know some tertiary institutions will like to localize their admission by narrowing it down to candidates from their locality.

“All such practice does not give our institutions the deserved exposure and competition as obtained in institutions in other climes.

“This is also partly the reason such institutions cannot attract foreign scholars.

“It is also the reason why most of them find it difficult to break through in terms of global ranking, aside from research and other considerations.

“We want to encourage our institutions to be having global out look and we believe that with this kind of awards, things will change for good,” Benjamin told NAN.

He said those expected at the award ceremonies were: Pro-Chancellors, Vice-Chancellors of Universities, as well as Provosts of Colleges of Education and Rectors of Polytechnics.
