The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has denied setting cut-off marks for admissions into higher institutions across Nigeria.

In a statement posted on its official X account on Thursday, the Board dismissed reports that it had established cut-off marks of 140 for universities and 100 for polytechnics.

“There’s no such thing as ‘cut-off mark’ in the admission process to tertiary institutions in Nigeria. What’s obtainable is a minimum tolerable score determinable by individual institutions,” the statement read.

This denial follows widespread reports that JAMB had set specific cut-off marks for universities and polytechnics. The reports were allegedly based on a statement by JAMB Registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, during the 2024 Policy Meeting of the Board held in Abuja.

The meeting, attended by the Minister of Education Tahir Mamman, vice-chancellors, rectors, registrars of higher institutions, and other stakeholders, was where the misinformation reportedly originated.

The Lagos State Government has announced a 90-day traffic diversion for motorists on the Odo Iya Alaro Bridge, starting Monday, July 22, 2024.

In a statement issued on Thursday, July 18, 2024, Commissioner for Transportation Mr. Oluwaseun Osiyemi explained that the diversion is necessary due to the deteriorated state of the asphalt pavement and expansion joints on the bridge.

Osiyemi detailed that the diversion will occur in two phases: the Ojota-bound lane and the Yaba/Ojuelegba/Maryland-bound lane. Alternative routes have been mapped out for each phase of the repairs.

The statement read, “For the first phase of the repairs, motorists heading to Ojota from Maryland/Yaba will be diverted into a counter flow on the lane inbound Maryland while motorists heading to Yaba from Ojota will continue their journeys on the same lane.

“Alternately, motorists from Berger, Magodo and Tollgate along Lagos-Ibadan Expressway are advised to go through the Alapere/Ogudu axis inward Gbagada/Anthony Oke Bridge to descend the ramp and access Ikorodu Road to continue their journeys.

“Motorists coming from Ikeja, Oregun and Kudirat Abiola Way are advised to use the Opebi Link Bridge to connect Mobolaji Bank Anthony Way inwards Sheraton through Maryland to access Ikorodu Road and navigate their ways.”

The statement also added that “motorists from Jibowu are advised to use the Ikorodu Road Service lane by Mobil Fuel Station/Bertola Engineering Equipment Company to access the Gbagada/Ogudu axis to continue their journeys.”

However, if the motorists “miss the turning by the Mobil Fuel Station and Bertola Engineering Equipment Company, they can also use Theodolite to link Anthony Oke Ramp and join Ikorodu Road again to access the Town Planning Way inward Gbagada/Ogudu/Alapere axis to proceed with their journeys.”

“Motorists from Jibowu heading to Ikeja, Magodo, Berger and Lagos Ibadan Expressway can use Maryland inwards Mobolaji Bank Anthony to link Sheraton/Opebi to Allen Avenue/Obafemi Awolowo Way and access Nurudeen Olowopopo Road to continue their journeys.

Alternatively, after going through the Opebi Link Bridge, they can also make use of Kudirat Abiola Way to access Ikosi Road inwards Mobolaji Johnson Avenue/7up to connect Nurudeen Olowopopo Road and access their desired destinations,” the statement read.

While explaining the second phase of the repair works, the commissioner noted that “motorists inward Maryland/Yaba from Ojota will be diverted into a counter flow on the lane inbound Ojota while motorists from Maryland will continue their journey on the same lane.”

For the alternative routes, motorists “from Berger, Magodo and Toll Gate can use Alapere inwards Gbagada to link the Anthony Oke Ramp to connect Ikorodu Road and access their desired destinations. Similarly, motorists coming from Ikorodu/ Ketu can utilise the Ojota Ramp Bridge to link Alapere and continue their journeys as explained above.

“Motorists from Ikeja, Oregun and Kudirat Abiola Way are advised to use the Opebi Link Bridge inwards Mobolaji Bank Anthony/Sheraton and come out at Maryland to enter Ikorodu Road and continue their journeys.”

“The aforementioned alternative routes for motorists heading to Ikeja, Magodo, Berger and Lagos-Ibadan Expressway from Jibowu during the first phase are also available during the second phase of the repairs,” the statement explained.

The Commissioner appealed to the public ” to cooperate with the interventions put in place during the repairs” as he assured that traffic management personnel would be on the ground to ensure a steady traffic flow.

The Force Police Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, has issued a warning to Nigerians about the dangers of collecting, keeping, or buying stolen items.

In a post on X.com on Friday, Adejobi referenced Section 427 of the Criminal Code Act, which states that anyone who knowingly receives stolen goods is guilty of a felony.

Section 427 of the Criminal Code Act states: “Any person who receives anything which has been obtained by means of any act constituting a felony or misdemeanour, or by means of any act done at a place not in Nigeria, which if it had been done in Nigeria would have constituted a felony or misdemeanour, and which is an offence under the laws in force in the place where it was done, knowing the same to have been so obtained, is guilty of a felony.

If the offence by means of which the thing was obtained is a felony, the offender is liable to imprisonment for fourteen years, except in the case in which the thing so obtained was postal matter, or any chattel, money or valuable security contained therein, in which case the offender is liable to imprisonment for life.

In any other case, the offender is liable to imprisonment for seven years.

For the purpose of proving the receiving of anything, it is sufficient to show that the accused person has, either alone or jointly with some other person, had the thing in his possession, or has aided in concealing it or disposing of it.”

Adejobi stressed that receiving stolen property is a criminal offence that can lead to significant prison time. He advised Nigerians to exercise caution and ensure the legitimacy of the sources of any items they receive, keep, or buy.

He wrote: “Receiving stolen property is a criminal offence. Don’t receive for, keep or buy items you are not sure of their sources. Such could be dangerous and land someone in prison. See sec 427 of the criminal code.”

The Education Minister, Prof. Tahir Mamman, has reversed his earlier directive that only candidates aged 18 and above are eligible for admission into tertiary institutions.

During the ongoing policy meeting organized by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) in Abuja, Mamman initially announced that only applicants who were 18 years or older would be eligible for admission.

However, stakeholders at the meeting opposed this directive, arguing that it would be unfair to deny admission to 16-year-old students who passed WAEC and JAMB.

In response to the stakeholders’ feedback, the minister agreed that candidates aged 16 and above would be eligible for admission this year, with the 18-year minimum age requirement to be implemented next year.

Meanwhile, JAMB has approved 140 as the cut-off mark for 2024 admission into universities and 100 for polytechnics and colleges of education. This decision was made during the 2024 annual policy meeting on admissions, held at the Body of Benchers Headquarters in Abuja.

Following the successful conduct of the 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), in which 1,989,668 candidates registered, the policy meeting chaired by Minister Mamman set the National Minimum Tolerable UTME Score (NTMUS) at 140 for universities and 100 for polytechnics and colleges of education. Of the registered candidates, 80,810 were absent, and 1,904,189 took the UTME.

JAMB Registrar, Is-haq Oloyede, announced the cut-off marks, noting that while individual institutions can raise their minimum benchmarks, they cannot go below the approved marks for their respective categories.

The Minister of Education, Prof. Tahir Mamman, announced on Thursday that a new curriculum for secondary schools across Nigeria will be introduced by September 2024.

Mamman announced this at Abuja’s 2024 Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board policy meeting.

He stated, “We are working hard to ensure that a new curriculum is introduced for secondary schools by September.”

The Minister mentioned that the curriculum development exercise has been ongoing for the past year, and a stakeholders meeting is scheduled for August 6, 2024.

“It is our plan that by September, this programme will be implemented in all schools, public and private,” he added.

Recently, the National Senior Secondary School Education Commission highlighted the poor state of senior secondary schools in Nigeria, calling for collaboration to address the challenges faced by the secondary education sector.

These challenges include infrastructural deficits, unqualified teachers, outdated curriculums, and inadequate libraries and laboratories. The introduction of a new curriculum is part of the efforts to tackle these issues.

The Nigerian Senate rejected a bill to establish the National Road Transport Council, sponsored by Deputy Senate Leader, Senator Oyelola Ashiru (APC Kwara South).

The proposed legislation, titled National Road Transportation Council (Establishment) Bill, 2024, aimed to regulate the road transport industry and profession in Nigeria.

In leading the debate on the bill On Thursday, Ashiru explained that the legislation would create a council board consisting of a chairman and six members, each representing a different geo-political zone of the country.

According to the explanatory memoranda of the bill, presented by Senate Chief Whip Senator Tahir Monguno (APC Borno North) on behalf of Ashiru, the board would include representatives from the Ministries of Transport, Commerce and Industry, and Aviation, who would hold positions not below the rank of Director.

The proposed council’s functions were outlined to include:

  • Creating a regulatory framework for road transport service operators.
  • Setting standards for knowledge and skills required in the road transport sector.
  • Promoting education in road transportation.
  • Ensuring accessibility of transport facilities, channels, and routes.
  • Monitoring the performance of the road transport industry.
  • Conducting background checks on transport service operators.
  • Registering service providers and determining registration fees.
  • Setting guidelines and policies for operators.
  • Reporting annually to the Federal Government on activities and progress.
  • Suggesting improvements and carrying out tasks as assigned by the Federal Government.

During the debate, Senators Victor Umeh (LP Anambra Central), Adams Oshiomhole (APC Edo North), and Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan (PDP Kogi Central), among others, opposed the bill.

They argued that it would duplicate the functions of existing agencies such as the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) and the Directorate of Road Transport Service (DRTS), also known as the Vehicle Inspection Office (VIO).

As a result, when Senate President Godswill Akpabio put the bill to a voice vote, the majority of Senators voted against it.

The post FG, Labour agree on 70,000 minimum wage — Minister first appeared on InsideOjodu.]]>
The Minister of Information Mohammed Idris says the Federal Government and the leadership of the Organised Labour have agreed on ₦70,000 as the new minimum wage for Nigerian workers.

The minister said the agreement was reached at a meeting between President Bola Tinubu and the leaders of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) on Thursday in Abuja.

“We are happy to announce today (Thursday) that both the Organised Labour and the Federal Government have agreed on an increase on the N62,000 minimum wage. The new national minimum that Mr President is expected to submit to the National Assembly is ₦70,000,” an elated Idris told State House correspondents.

NLC President Joe Ajaero, TUC boss Festus Osifo, Labour Minister Nkiruka Onyejeocha, and other officials from both sides flanked the minister.

Ajaero confirmed that ₦70,000 was where they were on the issue of the minimum wage.

He also said that part of the discussion was that the minimum wage would no longer wait till after five years to be reviewed. According to him, the agreement was that the minimum wage would now be reviewed every three years.

Ajaero said the Organised Labour would consult with their members on the ₦70,000 benchmark.

“We were here last week. And we are here now. What they have announced in terms of the amount of ₦70,000 happens to be where we are now. But the thing about it is that we will not wait for another five years to come and agree,” Ajaero said.

On her part, Onyejeocha said Tinubu had also directed the Ministers of Finance and Budget, Wale Edun and Atiku Bagudu, respectively, to work out modalities on how to settle the issues with the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions (NASU).

The “agreement” between the two sides followed a series of talks between labour leaders and the President in the last few weeks after months of failed talks between labour organs and a tripartite committee on minimum wage constituted by the President in January.

The committee, which comprised state and federal governments and the Organised Private Sector, had proposed ₦62,000 while labour insisted on ₦250,000 as the new minimum wage for workers who currently earn ₦30,000 as minimum wage.

Labour had said ₦30,000 was unsustainable for any worker going by the economic vagaries of inflation and high cost of living which followed the removal of petrol subsidy by the President.

Last Thursday, the President met with labour leaders and called for realistic expectations as regards minimum wage. “You have to cut your coat according to available cloth. Before we can finalise the minimum wage process, we have to look at the structure,” Tinubu had said.
