ABUJA—THE Registrar of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, yesterday, told the Senate that the body will remit N4.26 billion into the federation account, this year, a far cry from the N7.8 billion it remitted last year.

Speaking in Abuja when he appeared before the Senator Jibrin Barau, APC, Kano North-led Senate Committee on Tertiary Education and TETFUND for the 2018 Budget defence, Oloyede, who noted that though the agency is expected generate N14.691billion  as Internally Generated Revenue, said that N7.744 billion of the money would be used for overhead cost items while N2.683 billion is earmarked for capital projects.

The JAMB Registrar explained that the examination body was given zero allocations for overheads and capital expenditure components of the 2017 budget, adding that with the 2018 budget proposal, the examination body plans funding for the two components from its projected IGR.

Meanwhile, Senators, yesterday, openly disagreed on whether the huge remittance JAMB made into the federation account last year deserved commemdation.

Speaking further, he said: “If we remove N7.744bn estimated for overhead cost and N2.683bn earmarked for capital project from the projected N14.691bn IGR, the balance surplus would be N4.262bn to be remitted into the federation account as against N7.8 billion remitted last year.”


The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board on Thursday directed all tertiary institutions to end their 2017 admission by January 25.

The Board’s Head of Media, Dr Fabian Benjamin said the board’s decision came at a meeting where all issues and ones bordering on the admission process were taken into consideration.

He said it was resolved that the academic calendar must be adhered to.

According to him, the directive becomes necessary as the board intends to meet up with the academic calendar as earlier agreed.

“By implication, candidates who have gained admissions into various institutions and are yet to register or do not have admissions by January 25 should begin to make preparations for the 2018 UTME.

“The public must also note that the UTME results are valid for only one year and not three years as widely speculated.

“If changes are made to the validity, I assure you the board would communicate appropriately to the public.”

The board had recently said that the UTME examinations would take place between March 9 and 17, while the mock exams would take place in the first week of February.

Benjamin also noted that the sale of Direct Entry forms is ongoing while urging candidates who intend to apply to do so immediately as the sale of the DE forms ends on the same date with the UTME’s.

“It has come to our knowledge that a lot of candidates are not aware of the sale of the Direct Entry forms, which we have advertised.

“We are calling on desirous candidates to please register their profile and obtain the pins from the vending platforms.

“Candidates who want to apply to institutions through DE must note that the sale of the forms started the same date as the UTME’s and would end on the same date which is on February 6.

“This form can be obtained through the same process as the UTME forms.

“It could be purchased through vending commercial banks, Mobile Money Operators (MMO’s), Interswitch, NIPOST, and Remita,” he said.

Benjamin, however, noted that candidates should ensure that they disclose at the point of obtaining e-pins the exact pins they are paying for, that is, Direct Entry or UTME as some unknowingly purchase Direct Entry instead of UTME and vice-versa.

Verification | Verify WAEC Result Online - it Important

Why It Is Important to Verify WAEC Result Online

Checking the validity and originality of WAEC O’level result has really become essential because of the impending danger of using a fake result. I want to share with you today a life experience and why you need to take WAEC result verification seriously.

Lekan a Graduate of Economics from a reputable university who also travelled abroad for his masters’ degree, came back home and landed a great job with a reputable firm, but one fateful day his story changed, behold, Lekan was sacked from his well-paid job,

His WAEC result was fake and his organisation had to let go of him when this was discovered during an annual verification exercise carried out by the company.

Whose fault?
Peradventure Lekan was just a victim of unforeseen circumstance, but how come the universities, embassy and even his organisation didn’t know this ab initio?

Many schools, corporate organisations, embassies and individuals have been a victim of accepting and employing candidates with fake WAEC result which has overtime cost them so much.

However, in 2012 the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) launched an online result verification portal that enables interested parties to authenticate results issued by the examination body.

The online portal is a solution that gives individuals, schools, tertiary institutions, embassies, employers and other interested parties the opportunity to check and verify WAEC results of candidates at anytime and anywhere in the world

The National Youth Service Corps has launched a curriculum Vitae (CV) web repository and job portal in furtherance of its drive to increase opportunities for fresh graduates.

The portal, which is an initiative of the NYSC Lagos State Coordinator, the Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) team and a group of Corps members, was launched by the Director General of the NYSC, Brigadier General S. Z Kazaure, in Lagos recently.

The portal is aimed at providing the links between outgoing corps members seeking white collar jobs and employers of labour who desire to employ qualified graduates based on their jobs specifications.
Kazaure, in his remarks pointed out that, despite the obvious difficulty of securing white collar jobs and the overriding benefits of self-employment, a good number of graduates were still inclined to trying their luck with paid employment.

“Which is why management considers it appropriate to buy into the idea of helping Corps members to package themselves for employability in the highly competitive labour market,” he explained.
He added: “The portal we are launching will among other benefits, serve as a platform for Corps members to get information on job vacancies and market themselves to prospective employers, serve as a large pool for employers searching for suitable candidates, and provide means of verification of credentials.”

The NYSC boss stressed that the scheme was initiated to empower corps members.
He also said there had been in-camp and off-camp trainings in various skill areas, in partnership with the Central Bank of Nigeria and the Bank of Industry.

The Vice President, Business Development West, Sigma Pensions Limited, Mrs. Mabel George who expressed satisfaction over the programme said: “Our job is basically about helping people to plan for their future and with this portal it makes everyone employable.

“We are so excited that people can get employed and in turn have savings for their future. I see this as a wonderful initiative by the NYSC. We are here pledging our continuous support to this cause and anything that is going to help this country to become greater we always want to play a part of it.”
In launching this portal, the NYSC partnered Dragnet Solutions, Blogme Nigeria Limited, Gr8jobs Limited, Sigma Pensions and Diamond bank plc.

NYSC Redeployment Criteria - Marital, Health and Security Ground

Seeking approval for relocating or redeploying at the NYSC orientation camp can be a daunting task especially for prospective corp members who don’t have genuine reasons why he/she should not serve in the state they have been posted to. Although every youth corper has the right to request for a change of state (NYSC Redeployment Scheme / Relocation), one must have a genuine reason to be able to apply.

This article will state the reasons that the National Youth Service Corp Board will allow for redeployment and list the two ways which you can apply for relocation request and be approved easily.

NYSC Redeployment Criteria - Acceptable Grounds For Redeployment By The NYSC Board.

Below are the criteria that the NYSC will consider your request to redeploy to another state:

NYSC Redeployment Criteria 1. Marital grounds: This normally applies to only female corps members who want to move to the state where their husbands live at. A corps member who finds herself in such situation should apply in writing after the swearing-in Ceremony stating why he/she wants to be relocated. The application letter should be addressed to the Director-General through the State Coordinator. Since you are applying on marital ground, you are to attach the following:
*. A valid marriage certificate
*. A document showing change of name in any of the National Newspapers and Affidavit
*. A letter from your husband’s workplace which will serve as an evidence that your husband is domiciled in the state you want to relocate to.

NYSC Redeployment Criteria 2. Health/Medical grounds: This reason are for those who have extreme or reoccurring illnesses which requires that they be monitored closely. You will need a medical report from your institution’s medical centre or from a recognized hospital. Please note that these claims on health grounds are subject to further confirmation to establish its authenticity.

NYSC Redeployment Criteria 3. Security Grounds: While there are best states to serve as a youth corper in Nigeria, there are some states affected by the Boko Haram insurgents and they are: Borno, Adamawa, Gombe, Yobe, and other Northern states in that region. It is no news that parents and guardians won’t even allow their children go for the orientation exercise at the camp talk more of serving in such state.

How To Apply For NYSC Relocation & Redeployment (Approved Ways)

1. Applying within the camp: This is one way for the you can write you letter of redeployment is by applying for it while on camp. It is within the 21 days duration orientation course on camp that interested Corp members will have the opportunity reapply for relocation at the second week on camp. Normally, a form will be given out to the interested corper to fill. As stated above, the corper would have to state the reason he or she to relocation, providing proof as evidence. You will also be asked to submit an application letter for redeployment together with the form.

2. Applying online after camp :It was difficult or rather an impossible task to get relocation approval after the 21 days orientation camping is over. The NYSC board has now made it possible to easily apply online for relocating even after the camp is over. You need not wait to get your approval for relocation after 3 months as you can get approved for relocation even after 2 weeks of application.
