Recession: JAMB Too Broke To Conduct UTME – Registrar

Featured Image

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has expressed that inadequate funding posed a challenge to the conduct of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME.

Speaking on Wednesday, when he received a delegation of the Senate Committee on Tertiary Institution and Tertiary Education Trust Fund in his office in Bwari, Abuja, the Registrar, JAMB, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, said:

 “The major challenge facing the board has to do with funding. We take N5,000 from each candidate.

“We do not even have the money to conduct the examination.

“Rather, we call on third party to do some of the things and they only give some commission to JAMB because we do not have enough money to invest.

“Conduct of examination across the country requires intensive human participation; you will recruit invigilators and monitors and then it costs so much money to set exam questions.

“The capital allocation is N1 billion; the release so far is N45.57million; the overhead cost is N50 million allocated, but N24.9 million is what we have received so far.

“The N24.9 million given is not sufficient to pay electricity bills because all the 36 states and zonal offices depend on what comes from headquarters for their funding.”

Oloyede appealed to the National Assembly to review its decision on the bill seeking to validate the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination for three years to avoid harm.

In the same vein, the exam body said tertiary institutions in the country have not been able to successfully fill 70 per cent of their admission quotas by candidates in the last five years due to uniform cutoff marks adopted by the federal government.

Oloyede said: “Every year, we do not meet 70% of the quota contrary to what people think that there are more people than the existing places.
We have in the last five years, not filled 70% of the quota. We need to ask a question, why? The simple answer is a mismatch.

“I can say it without any doubt that it has never been obeyed. It is only obeyed in the papers. When you talk about the practice of it, there are hundreds of people in our universities, polytechnics and colleges of education that have not gone through JAMB.

“The reason is that we are setting standards that cannot be obeyed. They (universities, polytechnics and colleges of education) will now go through the back door and recruit people with 160, 150, 140 and some who did not take JAMB at all because you have made 180 the minimum.”

“I’ll Continue To Fight To Achieve My United Dream” – Mkhitaryan

Featured Image

Henrikh Mkhitaryan is not ready to give up his Manchester United dream and says he’ll continue to fight despite having limited playing time under Mourinho.

The Armenia international has started only one match in the Premier League, before he was substituted at halftime.

Mkhitaryan was used as a second-half substitute in the 2-1 Europa League defeat to Fenerbahce but was left out of the squad altogether for the victory over Swansea on Sunday.

Speculation has persisted that the 27-year-old could be allowed to leave Old Trafford as early as January, but Mkhitaryan is adamant that he does not want to leave.

“It’s true that I’ve not had much time on the pitch so far. But I will not give up,” he was quoted as saying by Sport Bild after his appointment as a UNICEF ambassador.

“I worked hard in my career and it was a long journey to play for Manchester United. I will continue to fight to make my dream come true at United.

“I will not give up and I’ll find the strength to achieve that goal.”

Who Hillary Clinton Epp? – Reno Omokri

Who Hillary Clinton Epp?, By Reno Omokri

On Election Day 2016, I urged all my friends to go out and vote for Donald Trump with the following message:

“Get out and vote for the unborn fetus. Get out and vote for the God ordained marriage between a man and a woman. Get out and vote against transgender bathrooms. Get out and vote against Roe V. Wade. Get out and vote for Donald J. Trump! He might not be perfect, but he will promote those conservative values that have kept a check on the moral fabric of society and nominate conservative Supreme Court Justices.”

This piece was written by Reno Omokri. The views and opinions expressed here are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of 360Nobs.com.

So many African Americans and Black Africans have been appalled by my support for Donald Trump ever since my interview on the BBC on November 1, 2016 when I called for Africans and others eligible to vote in the US elections to vote Donald Trump.

And why were my people so appalled? Because we are an emotional people who take decisions based on what we want right now rather than what we want eventually.

READ ALSO: #Trumpwins: Nigerians Seek To Witness Wole Soyinka ‘Tear His Passport On Air’

Most African Americans voted for Hillary because they bought into the lie peddled by the mainstream media that Trump is a racist. Most Black Africans supported Hillary because they did not want Trump to clamp down on immigration into the US.

But my people failed to take into account the big picture!

What are our cultural values as a race? Do we as Black people, whether African American or Black African, really support gay rights and gay marriage? Trust our copycat culture, if Hillary had been elected she would have strengthened the gay marriage lobby and her Supreme Court nominees would have made it a reality, and the next thing you know, we would want to copy it hook, line and sinker.

As a race, we suffer disproportionately from abortions more than any other races in America. African Americans and Black Africans make up 13 percent of the US population, yet 37 percent of all abortions in the US are done by Black women. It has gotten to the point where the most dangerous place for a Black child to be is in its own mother’s womb!

Can we afford to continue with such a shameful record? We need someone that is committed to ending Roe V. Wade and outlawing the practice of on demand abortion. I believe in a woman’s right to choose but that right is asserted by any woman the minute she chooses to have unprotected sex.

But let me get technical. What did Hillary Clinton do for Nigeria or Africa when she was Secretary of State?

My people are just too sentimental and forget how she dithered and resisted naming Boko Haram as a terrorist group. We have forgotten how she led the effort to use the Leahy Law to frustrate Nigeria’s efforts to buy weapons from the US and when we could not buy from them she and her contemporaries also frustrated our efforts to buy from Israel.

The annoying thing is that it was her disastrous intervention in Libya that led to the escalation of the Boko Haram insurgency because the overthrow of Gaddafi destabilised much of North and West Africa by putting sophisticated light weapons in the hands of non-state actors like Boko Haram.

And yet when we as a nation were faced with the consequences of her actions she would not help us. Nigeria was reduced to buying weapons for cash on the black market.

READ ALSO: Donald Trump Is Elected President Of The United States

The thing is that Gaddafi may have been a nasty piece of work but at least he made Libya stable. Today, ISIS has a foothold in Libya and from there supports insurgents like Boko Haram and al-Shaabab who are causing instability in Nigeria and Kenya.

My big question to Nigerians especially is this: Who Hillary Clinton Epp? Our follow follow is too much. In real economic terms, what did we stand to gain from Hillary Clinton?

Though I have been a life-long Republican since first coming to America as a nine year old, I suspended that status in 2008 to support a fellow Black man, Barack Obama, out of purely primordial reasons (he is Black, as I am) but to be honest, what has Africa and Nigeria gained from eight years of Obama in the White House?

He never visited Nigeria. He never packaged any special economic package for Nigeria or Africa. Say whatever you want to say about former President George W. Bush, no other US President has been as radical in his support of Africa as Bush, number 43, was!

For giving more than $5 billion in humanitarian aid to Africa annually, President Bush is on record as having given more assistance to Sub-Saharan Africa than any other president, including President Obama!

AIDS and Malaria are some of our biggest challenges in Africa and Bush met us at the point of our needs.

Before President George W. Bush intervened in the fight against HIV/AIDS, only 100,000 Africans were on anti-retrovirals, but in 2003 he set up the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and by the time he left office in 2009 that number had grown to two million.

When Congress resisted his efforts for funding to the tune of $1.2 billion to fight malaria in Africa in 2007, Bush persuaded them by saying, “There’s no reason for little babies to be dying of mosquito bites around the world.”

Now I ask you, what similar efforts have President Obama and Hillary put forward while they had power? Yes Obama has held meetings like the first US/Africa Leaders Summit and the US Africa Business Summit but would we eat summits? What came of these other than talk, with Obama mostly talking down on African leaders in a way he would never do with Asian leaders.

At least with Trump we know that he would take on ISIS and other radical Islamic groups, and that includes Boko Haram!

Moreover, Trump has pledged to curb China’s global dominance and to do that he would have to match China dollar for dollar in Africa; and when China and the US compete, Africa gains.

But be that as it may I am very proud to have publicly supported Donald Trump from the beginning to the end.

Where are all those people who insulted me for my support for Donald Trump? They all seem to have gone missing in the ‘other room’!

Chelsea U23 Coach Says Zouma Is Ready For First Team

Featured Image

Chelsea’s development coach believes Kurt Zouma is ready to step up to the first team, after helping him on his road to fitness.

The 23-year-old defender tore his ACL in February against Manchester United and completed his first 90 minutes since when he helped Chelsea beat Oxford United on penalties on Tuesday in the Checkatrade Trophy.

Adi Viveash has had Zouma in his ranks to build up his match fitness ahead of a return to the first team for his last two Premier League 2 matches and thinks that the France international is ready for his next step.

“I’d say he is ready to train with you [Conte], yes,” he told a press conference at Stamford Bridge. “He has been a privilege to work with, he is a fine young player, he has been tremendous with the boys, he works very, very hard every day.

“He has been really good and he gives good advice, but you have still got to remember that he is very young and he has now got to get into a defence that is performing excellently at the minute but what he does do is that he gives the manager another quality player and that, I imagine, is important for his squad.

“I would imagine [that he will return soon to the first team], he has trained with them a few days of last week then going into this game he came back with us on Sunday, two days before this. He did a few days with them and he did a few days a week before.

“He is building up and the manager is getting to look at him. He is getting closer and I think he is waiting to see if he gets through 90 and now we will see if there are any problems with the knee tomorrow.

“He will come in and cool down and then after Thursday he will train with the players that have not gone on international duty.”

Reps Wants Promoters Of MMM Arrested In Epic Crackdown

Featured Image

The House of Representatives on Wednesday ordered law enforcement agencies and the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to track down and arrest promoters of a “questionable” investment scheme – Mavrodi Mondial Moneybox – popularly known as ‘MMM.’

The legislators in the lower chamber also ordered its committees on banking and currency and financial crimes to investigate the scheme – which is gaining prominence among Nigerians in the wake of the current economic recession in the country.

The MMM, is a deposit money scheme, that promises 30 per cent return on investment for any money put into the scheme within 30 days.

In spite of its notoriety among Nigerians, critics still inferred that the business is a Ponzi scheme because its operators use money from earlier investors to pay later investors.

The scheme, which is of a Russian origin, is said not to have been registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission, making it difficult to identify its promoters.

It would be recalled, the CBN earlier dissociated itself from the scheme, saying that their activities were not regulated by it or any verified institution.

The Apex Bank’s detachment from the scheme came on the back of an earlier disavowal from the Minister of Solid Minerals and Steel Development, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, who said he had nothing to do with it or any other online financial aid community, projects or contracts.

However, lawmakers are of the opinion that the ‘ruse’ used by the operators was to attract as many Nigerians as possible to invest substantial amounts of money before the bubble would burst.

It, thereafter, called on the EFCC, security agencies and the CBN to take urgent steps to halt the scheme before many Nigerians would become victims of the scam.

The House concluded that members of a syndicate who conduct seminars to train people on how to invest in the business should be arrested.

The Chairman, House Committee on Telecommunications, Mr. Saheed Fijabi, had in a motion, drawn the attention of the House to the growing popularity of the scheme among Nigerians.

“The scheme entered the Nigerian circle in 2016, capitalising on the high level of unemployment and poverty to deceive unwary Nigerians into falling  prey to their antics”, Fijabi stated.

Another lawmaker from Ondo State, Bode Ayorinde, said lawmakers should be concerned because they will likely be inundated with petitions if the scheme goes burst.

“When the business goes burst, it is the same House that people will flood with petitions,” Mr. Ayorinde said.

Ronaldo Lauds Zidane After Fantastic Year

Featured Image

Cristiano Ronaldo, who recently signed a five-year contract extension with Real Madrid has hailed Zidane for a fantastic season at the club.

The Portugal international signed the extension that’ll take him past his 36th birthday on Monday, and has hinted at more.

The appointment of Zidane has manager might have played a key factor in the three-time Ballon d’Or winner’s renewal, as he was linked with an exit during Benitez tenure.

The former Madrid and France midfielder’s appointment sparked an upturn in fortunes that ended with Ronaldo netting the winning penalty to sink rivals Atletico in May’s Champions League final.

“He is a player in the history of Real Madrid and is now the coach of the first team,” the Portugal captain told Real Madrid TV.

“I admired him as a player and now I admire him as a person and as a coach. I have a special affection.

“It was his first year [last season] and winning the Champions League was spectacular for him on a personal level, a dream realised.

“After winning the Champions League we talked and they were special and funny moments, after winning a match with as much emotion as that final. The two of us were very excited.”

Euro 2016 glory with Portugal followed that sweet success at San Siro and Ronaldo feels the past year is unmatched in his stellar career.

“After making the most beautiful year of my career, with the Champions League, Euro and the renewal… it has been a perfect year,” he said.

“Now I want to keep winning – La Liga, the Champions League, the Club World Cup. I want to win trophies and continue at this club to win.”

Ronaldo said earlier this week that he felt he could perform for 10 more years and he underlined his desire to close out his playing days in Madrid.

“It is a very important moment in my professional life,” he added. “Extending five years with the best club in the world is a unique moment.

“The club is in my heart and, as I said, I want to finish here. There is no better club to continue playing for.”
