Nothing is stopping us: FUTMINA Set To Conduct Post-UTME Screening Despite ASUU Strike

Despite the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and the Non-Academic Satff Union of Universities (NASU), the Federal University of Technology, Minna, says it will go ahead with the post-UTME screening.

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic), Prof. Oluwole Morenikeji said this in a statement signed the school’s spokesman, Mrs Lydia Legbo.

Morenikeji said that the institution has concluded all logistical arrangements needed to conduct another hitch-free screening.

The official expressed optimism that the ongoing strike action would not affect the exercise since the post-UTME candidates are not yet students of the University.

He said that the University would employ the services of corps members who are serving in the institution to conduct the exercise and other people who have agreed to assist the University during the exercise.

He explained that since the examination is computer based, there would be no need for many invigilators.

”Those who are willing to assist us to conduct the exercise will be contracted and they will be paid for the job. So, I do not see any problem why the screening will not hold as scheduled.

”We expecting 10, 000 candidates for the exercise and that over 7, 000 candidates have concluded their registrations as at Wednesday, September 13, 2017″, he said.

He maintained that the deadline for registration for the screening remains September 15, 2017 as advertised by the University.
