ASUU PROTESTS AGAINST CANCELLATION OF POST UTME!!!

                                    POST UTME
The Academic Staff Union of Universities on Monday protested against
the decision of the Federal Government to scrap the post-Unified
Tertiary Matriculation Examination (POST UTME).
Warning that the scrapping “portends a serious danger for the quality
of education in Nigeria, “the union also said the decision undermined
the autonomy and powers of universities’ Senate as the highest
policy-making body on academic matters, particularly admission of
students and award of degrees.
The ASUU President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, who stated this in Abuja,
added that the Federal Government did not consult the union on the
matter.He said, “The cancellation of post-UTME to us portends a serious
danger for the quality of education in this country.
“The argument of Federal Government on the policy is unacceptable and
potentially harmful to the future of Nigerian’s education system. We
call on the government to rescind its decision and convene a genuine
stakeholders ‘ meeting on the issue before making any policy statement.”
