(Due to the high rate of unemployment in the country, and the massive chucking out” of graduates from the higher institutions all over the country. A secret directive for the Presidency was to MAKE SURE 70% of those sitting for the UTME Exams do not pass the UTME. This was to enable them clear the back logs of graduates that where still awaiting admission & to create an equilibrium for those graduating from the higher institution “the ideas was to reduced the number of UTME intakes into the universities, which will drastically reduce the number of undergraduates, in the long run’ drop the ratio of unemployed graduates” in the country – leaving our children, brothers, sisters and love ones to suffer for the failure of the government- please read the article below, it has began’ see how they tend to achieve this SMH’ this is totally unfair.)
Hundreds of students, who sat for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) on Monday in Kano staged a peaceful demonstration against mass failure and withholding of their results.
The students stormed the premises of the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria in Kano on motorcycles around noon and carried placards and green leaves to show their anger.
Spokesman for the candidates, Haruna Maidabam, described the withholding of their results as a deliberate attempt to deny them the opportunity to further their studies.
According to him, more than 10, 000 students who sat for the examination in Kano metropolis have yet to access their results.
Mr Maidabam said when the results were released last week, they went to the zonal office of Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board in Kano (JAMB) to complain but were directed to go and repeat the thumb printing for verification.
“There is no reason for any verification of thumb- print,” he said.
He called on the authorities concerned to do something urgently to address their predicament.
When contacted, the JAMB Zonal Coordinator, Hajiya Karimatu Abubakar, described the incident as unfortunate and attributed it to “some technical hitches”.
Mr Abubakar said as soon as the hitches were rectified, the issue would be resolved.
