The striking Non-Teaching Staff of the Nigerian Universities has threatened to disrupt the 2018 Joint Admission and Matriculation Board’s (JAMB) Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), set to hold from March 9.
Mr Samson Ugwoke, Chairman, Joint Action Committee (JAC), Non-Teaching Staff of the Nigerian Universities, made the threat at a meeting of the National JAC with the Principal Branch Officers on Wednesday in Abuja.
This year’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), will begin on Friday.
It is scheduled to hold from March 9 to March 17
Ugwoke said that the threat became imperative as the Federal Government had continued to renege on the agreement it entered with the unions.
According to him, “since our strike continues, JAC has decided that no activity will take place in the universities.”
“This is because if we are on strike and you expect our members to come and supervise JAMB or come to operate their machines like the computers, that means we are breaking the strike already.
“JAC has also decided that to redraw their assistance they would not go to work. So all I know is that as long as we are on strike, JAC has decide that there will be no exam.
