Admission seekers stranded as UNILAG workers protest – Pulse Nigeria
UNILAG Candidates admission screening disrupted as varsity workers protest
The protesting workers shut down the school gate and rendered the admission seekers stranded at the university entrance.
Candidates seeking admission into the University of Lagos, UNILAG were disappointed yesterday, Monday, November 4, as the university workers' protests disrupted their admission screening.
The University authority had initially instructed the candidates to who had been contacted by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB to report to the Multipurpose Hall A for screening.
However, the protesting workers shut down the school gate and rendered the admission seekers stranded at the university entrance.
The workers said they were protesting the disparity in the sharing formula of the N23bn recently released by the Federal Government meant to settle earned allowances and arrears.
They said that the FG was treating them as “unimportant elements” in the nation’s education sector.
They, however, vowed not to return to work until the government address their grievances.
UNILAG admission crisis
Recall that the UNILAG 2017/2018 admission process has been fraught with irregularities as the university management has thought it wise to withdraw the first admission list to protect the integrity of the institution.
The University authorities also expunged the names of those candidates found to have bribed their way into the list, pasted their names and vowed that the school will never admit them again,
