According to him, there is no truth behind such speculations, adding that some persons, whom he described as 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 sector scheduled 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.

He disclosed that already, preparations for the meeting had been concluded, adding that officials of the Ministry of Education were expected to attend.

The JAMB spokesman 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 of first choice.

“We therefore want to appeal to the general public, especially the candidates not to prey to fraudsters.

“The board will continue to provide information to the public on its processes and activities at every stage,” Benjamin assured.

NAN reports that over 1.8 million candidates had registered for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation , UTME.

I remember that year on the 2nd of January when my dad lost his former job. It was really a sad and traumatic experience for the family, but thank God for God.

I pray God consoles the affected staffs regardless their attitude towards the students. Amen

Sex tape: Babcock VC speaks on taking back expelled student, condemns blowjob 20191209 042223

Vice-Chancellor of Babcock University, Ilishan-Remo, Prof. Ademola Tayo, has spoken on the expulsion of a female student in the sex video that went viral last month.

The VC said the had to take that decision in order to protect its image and its alumni.

“Because anywhere they go they say the students of the University are all prostitutes”, The Nation quoted him as saying.

“They said the girls are always swallowing; and all kinds of ridicule. If we keep mute, in the public opinion they would think that anything goes in the institution. We had to make a statement to show discipline.

“But I need to tell you that I signed it off with tears in my eyes as a responsible father. But we are not leaving this young lady to her doom. The pastor called me last week and I prayed with the family.

“The father called me and said pray with your daughter. I said she is still my daughter. Sometimes discipline is therapeutic. It is when you go that you realise that this is not right what I have done and then you go back to yourself.

“I look forward to a time when this young girl would graduate and be celebrated. It may not be here; I don’t know where but we are not throwing the baby out with the bathwater.”

Tayo also described the act by the girl giving the boy a blow job as abnormal.

“It is not normal for a young woman to take the manhood of the man and be swallowing. That is a very dirty thing which supposed not to be heard,” he said.

The VC said some stakeholders commended the university’s decision to expel the student, saying that they would have pulled their wards out of the University.
