VERIFY UTME RESULT CLAIMS BEFORE AWARDING SCHOLARSHIP – OLOYEDE

Published

on

As the preparation for the 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) continues, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board(JAMB) has urged Nigerians to cross check claims of excellent performance by candidates in the examination before awarding scholarship.

According to the JAMB Weekly Bulletin made available to journalists, the registrar gave this advice during a virtual meeting with the state commissioners of education across the country.

JAMB Registrar Ishaq Oloyede stated that seeking clarifications from the Board would prevent fraudulent claims of excellence.

Recall that a 2023 UTME candidate, Ejikeme Mmesoma forged her result, claiming to have scored 362 instead of the 249 she had scored.

The Registrar noted that apart from the Mmesoma’s case, an almost similar one happened in Osun, where a UTME candidate was unjustly rewarded on account of fraudulent claims of excellence in the 2023 UTME.

He stated that the Osun State government would have contacted the Board to find out the true state of affairs regarding the candidate as the Anambra State government had done.

Oloyede commended the commissioners for their unrelenting support to the Board in the conduct of the 2023 UTME, especially in terms of dissemination of timely information to candidates and solicit the same for the upcoming 2024 examination.

REPS STOPS INCREASE OF FEES FOR NIGERIA LAW SCHOOL

Published

on

The House of Representatives on Wednesday, February 21, asked the Council of Legal Education to put in abeyance, the recent 60 percent increase in the school fees of the Nigeria Law School. 

Adopting a motion by the Minority Leader of the House, Kingsley Chinda and read on his behalf by Ginger Owusibe, the House asked its relevant committees on Justice and Tertiary Education and Services to explore solutions to the issue at hand and report back within two weeks.

Chinda described the Nigerian Law School as the medium through which the Council of Legal Education discharges its function to regulate the legal education of persons seeking to become members of the legal profession as provided for under Section 1(2) of the Legal Education (Consolidation, etc.) Act Cap. L10, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004.

He said the function of the Council of Legal Education to oversee legal education in Nigeria includes deciding the cost of tuition and other services rendered to students of the Nigerian Law School. 

He stressed that Nigeria is currently facing a 27.33% inflation rate, as reported by the Nigerian Bureau of Statistics, which is projected by Trade Economics to rise to 30.00% by December 2023.

He however expressed concern that in exercising its functions, the Council of Legal Education has approved a 60% increase in Nigerian law school fees from ₦296,000. 00 to ₦476,000 for the 2023/2024 Bar Part II academic session.

He said further that the 2023–2024 Bar Part II Academic session commenced in January 2024 with no time given to prospective students to raise the balance. 

He warned that failure to promptly address the need for a balance between the Council’s service quality and students’ affordability could result in a significant drop in Nigerian law school enrollment. 

According to him, this, in turn, would lead to fewer lawyers being called to the Bar, ultimately contributing to a higher national unemployment rate among those unable to pursue legal careers.
