Over 10,000 Candidates Caught Cheating In Anambra - JAMB

The Joint Admissions Matriculation Board (JAMB) says more than 10,000 candidates caught for examination malpractices in the on-going UTME in Anambra have been handed over to the appropriate authority.
Nigerian Army Opens Base In Daura, Buhari's Hometown
Mrs Lynda Nwachukwu, the Coordinator of the board in Anambra disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Awka on Saturday.

NAN reports that the all computer-based testing (CBT) mode 2017 UTME, which started on May 13 in 642 centres nationwide, ended on May 20.

Nwachukwu said that the examination, which took place in 28 centres in the state, was successful.

“There was no disruption of the exercise in any of the examination centres,’’ she said.

The coordinator said that the candidates adhered strictly to the requirements of the examination, adding that JAMB provided all the materials required for the examination.

NAN correspondent, who monitored the last batch of the examination, reports that some parents complained of system failure in some CBT centres in the state.

Mrs Eucharia Okonkwo, a parent, said her daughter, who wrote the examination at the St Mary’s High School Ifite-Dunu centre, could not complete the examination due to the faulty computer and network failure at the centre.

According to her daughter, many candidates could not complete the questions in record time because of the faulty system.

Okonkwo advised JAMB to plan well for examination in subsequent years to avoid the technical hitches that could give the candidates psychological trauma.

Dr. Mose Mojekeh, Head, Department of Marketing at the Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University, told NAN on a telephone, that such system failure in UTME was not acceptable.

According to him, the hiccups could potentially deny young people from Anambra State, university admission.

Mojekeh advised JAMB to urgently collate the number of candidates affected and set another examination for them.

He also decried the practice whereby JAMB sends officials from one state to supervise examinations in another state.

“Experience has shown that such officials do not care much about the candidates when problems arise, as they leave them to their fate,’’ the lecturer said.

He called on the management of schools, whose candidates experienced the computer failure, to take their complaints to the State Ministry of Education to present their cases.

NAN reports that the JAMB concluded its CBT on May 20. (NAN)

Salary Structure Of Nigerian Lecturers: Annual Salary Of Nigerian Lecturers

This post has in it; how much a Nigerian professor earns per annum and the salary of a Nigerian lecturer from lecturer 2, senior lecturer to a professor yearly in a typical university in Nigeria.

It is often said that the academic system is where the best profession lies. You might be wondering how much a professor is paid for lecturing. Truth being said, university lecturers salary in Nigeria isn’t that bad. Although, you have to start as a graduate assistant before you attain such heights in education sector.

Below is a breakdown or list of how much Nigerian lecturers is paid from lecturer II to professor level per annum.

Salaries of Nigerian Lecturers
1. Lecturer II earns N1,649,509 to N1,979,640 yearly.

2. Lecturer I is paid N2,079,996 to N2,684,010 per annum.

3. Senior Lecturer earns N3,091,505 to 4,455,506 per annum.

4. Reader earns N3,768,221 to N5,004,750 Naira yearly.

5. A Professor in Nigeria earns N4,580,349 - N6,020,163 yearly.

As seen from the salaries of lecturers in Nigeria above, a Nigerian professor is paid far more than the rest. In Nigeria, only a few civil servants salary could match that.

Its no surprise that graduates are vying for lecturing jobs in Nigeria. Although, private universities pay higher than both state and federal universities.

This does not mean that the work of being a lecturer in a Nigerian university isn’t stressful. The job requires passion, effort, sacrifice and discipline. Apart from the fact that professors are paid huge amount of salary, they still go sabbatical leave which allows them do per time contract job with other universities.

SS2 Student Expelled For Sleeping With Classmate's Dad And Teacher's Husband

A secondary school student, in one of the secondary schools in Delta State, have been expelled for allegedly sleeping with her classmate's dad for N500, alongside her friend. It was gathered that the girl, who once accused a corp member of rape, was caught with the man by the town's people when he came to pick her up before school was over.
Nigeria: Today's Newspaper Headlines [21 May, 2017]
Here's what a Facebook user, who pleaded anonymity wrote;

"An ss2 student was expelled from my ppa this morning. What was her offence? She was sleeping with her teacher's husband, they were both caught by the town's people when he came to pick her up before school was over.

This student was the same one that accused a corper of rape and getting her pregnant just to get money from him, the man she's having an affair with is a grandfather and she's also class mates with his last child I think. She and her friend slept with the man for a fee of #500, I kid you not. I thought they said if you want to eat frog, eat a big one, probably she's not heard that before. Secondary school students are something else now.

Ever since my stay here in January, I begin to see some girls in a new light, some babes are sex freaks and have seen first hand the extent they can go for it. Is it buying of gifts, giving of money to the male corpers here all in a bid for them to have sex?."

In a statement released in Abuja on Friday by JAMB spokesperson, Fabian Benjamin, the body said the rumour was “devilish”.

“The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has urged all candidates who participated in the 2017 to disregard any information being circulated by mischief makers on the deduction of marks by the board.

“This rumour is false, devilish and intended to cause disaffection among the candidates.

“The board has not deducted any marks from any candidate and is not contemplating doing that as it is not a condition for sanction in any of the provisions of the law against malpractice.

“Again, we call on all candidates to be mindful of fraudulent characters who will send misleading informations to create panic and take advantage of the situation to defraud candidates,” he said.

The board also advised candidates to disregard rumours, that some people could not check their results because they owe JAMB.

“The board has also noted that some candidates who could not check their results are being told that their results are not out because they are owing JAMB some money.

“This is a lie and candidates are advised not to pay any money to anybody as their results are send to their mails and also on our

“Candidates are to login with their registration number or email address to print.

“The board will be concluding the 2017 examination on Saturday, May 20.
