The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has disclosed that it would release the cut-off marks for the 2020 admission year after a stakeholders meeting scheduled to be held on June 15 and 16, 2020.
Fabian Benjamin, the spokesperson for JAMB made the statement on Sunday, April 5, when dismissing reports circulating on social media claiming that admission cut-off marks had been released, The Nation reports.
Benjamin urged admission seekers to disregard any cut-off mark being circulated by those he described as fraudsters.
The spokesperson described the purported cut-off marks being circulated as fake.
“Kindly disregard any cut-off mark paraded by fraudsters. It is fake news," he said.
“Cut-off marks are decided at a policy meeting chaired by the Hon. Minister of Education with all heads of tertiary institutions, CEOs of regulatory agencies in education and other critical stakeholders in attendance.
“Until this meeting is held, nobody can talk of the cut-off marks. Nigerians are advised to disregard any such marks being paraded.”
Meanwhile, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has advised federal and state governments to back their lockdown order with the provision of existential needs for residents.
Legit.ng's regional reporter in Ibadan, Ridwan Kolawole, reports that the president of the union, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi, warned that unless the everyday needs of the people are made available, the emerging lockdown of the country may not achieve its desired result of social distancing.
Ogunyemi in a statement issued on Thursday, April 2, in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital, said there must be a reasonable supply of electricity, water, and food.
He warned that unless the needs of people are made available, the federal and state government may face a rebellion from people which would be counterproductive.
The ASUU president said the lesson to learn from the COVID-19 pandemic is that issues of health and safety know no territorial boundaries and political leaders everywhere had better work with everyone to make the world safe for all.
