UNILAG Postpones Post-UTME Screening
If you have applied to study at the University of Lagos, you will have to wait a little longer.
The university has postponed indefinitely its Post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (Post-UTME) earlier scheduled for Sept. 18 to Sept. 22.
The institution’s Registrar and Secretary to Council, Taiwo Ipaye, said a new date would be announced on the university’s website.
“Candidates and the public are requested to visit the institution’s website regularly for information on the new dates.
“However, this postponement does not affect the ongoing application for the post-UTME screening which closes officially on Sept. 15,’’ Ipaye said in a statement.
The postponement comes on the heels of the indefinite strike by the Joint Action Committee (JAC) of non-teaching staff of universities.
JAC comprises members of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), the Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) and NAAT.
Members of the various labour unions of universities are speaking against the non-implementation of the agreement it reached with the Federal Government in 2009.
