With God and our guide, your admission to the University of Abuja(UofA) will be a success.
Following the allegations of Jamb against the University of Abuja on giving illegal admissions to candidates, the school has came out to refute and fire back at jamb, stating that the power or autonomy of admitting students or candidates belongs to the institution, and not an external body.
The University Head of information and University Relations,Dr Habib Yakoob, insisted that it was not out of place for it to conduct admissions without JAMB’s input. He quoted that:
“The Universities Miscellaneous Provisions, (Amendment) Act 2003 7a (ii) states that “The Senate shall have powers in all academic matters including the organization and control, teaching and research, admission of students…”
He said and I qoute:-
Jamb - Admissions offered by UNIABUJA is illegal
“At this moment that the UofA is very cautiously, deliberately and efficiently working towards strengthening and perfecting its own system, it is in desperate need of all the cooperation and understanding it can garner from all well-meaning Nigerians and institutions.
Let us assure JAMB, candidates and relevant stakeholders in the Nigerian educational project that the University of Abuja is engaged in honest, transparent and open admissions in all its various programmes, and certainly, it will continue to uphold these virtues which have been its defining hallmark, especially in the last couple of years.Our rules are clear and transparent. As long as candidates have taken the UTME, scored 180 and above, met the University’s cut-off points and some other stringent criteria set by JAMB, the University ensures, within the limit of its capacity, that such candidates stand a chance of getting admitted.
In other words, nobody who has not taken the UTME, nor failed to meet JAMB or University guidelines, can be admitted in the University of Abuja now.
