UTME: JAMB Registers Over 300,000 In One Week

Benjamin said that this was coming a week after the commencement of the registration exercise.

The board commenced registration of candidates for the 2019 all Computer Based Test (CBT) on Jan.10 and it would close on Feb. 21.

UTME: JAMB to commence 2019 registration in December

According to him, the registration so far has been seamless, and the board is happy with the development.

“We are happy with the way the process is going; we hope it will continue this way.

“So far, we have registered over 300,000 candidates as at Thursday.

“We are happy there have not been issues because so far, there is just a tiny gap between the number of candidates that have acquired the e-pin and that of those that have registered,” he said.

Meanwhile JAMB had insisted that all candidates with issues of biometrics must go over to Abuja for it to be rectified.

“I want to reiterate the fact that only the Registrar of the board has the sole right to attend to such issues.

“Any candidate who may have issues with the capturing of his or her finger prints at their respective points of registration will need to come down to our office in Abuja.

“This will require the Chief Executive to do it himself for the purpose of security,” Benjamin said.

This, however, was contrary to calls by some stakeholders urging the board to set up special centres in every state of the country to tackle issues.

The National Parent Teacher Association of Nigeria (NAPTAN) had argued that asking candidates with biometric issues to travel all the way to Abuja to get such issues sorted out was too demanding, citing dangers of transportation, fares, among others.

Chief Adeolu Ogunbanjo, the second Deputy National President of the Association, said that most parents were barely struggling to get money to get their children and wards registered.

Ogunbanjo said that for those with such biometric issues, travelling to Abuja was an additional burden.

Obasanjo hits buhari(Nigeria is back to abacha's era)

Former president Olusegun Obasanjo says Nigeria is back to the Abacha era when state institutions were used to fight perceived enemies of the head of state.
Sani Abacha, a general, was the military head of state from November 1993 till his death in June 1998 and was accused of using dictatorial powers to rule the country.
Obasanjo made the remark in an open letter titled ‘Points for Concern and Action’. It was distributed to journalists at a press conference held on Sunday at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta, Ogun state.
TheCable understands that the former president decided to address the nation following recent developments in the polity, including the trial of the chief justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen, over an alleged false declaration of assets.
Obasanjo said: “Today, another Abacha Era is here. The security institutions are being misused to fight all critics and opponents of Buhari and to derail our fledgling democracy. EFCC, Police and Code of Conduct Tribunal are also being equally misused to deal with those Buhari sees as enemies for criticising him or as those who may not do his bidding in manipulating election results.
“Criticism, choice and being different are inherent trade mark of democracy. If democracy is derailed or aborted, anarchy and authoritarianism will automatically follow.
“Today, as in the day of Abacha, Nigerians must rise up and do what they did in the time of Abacha. Churches and Mosques prayed. International community stood by us Nigerians. I was a beneficiary and my life was saved. Well-meaning Nigerians took appropriate actions and made sacrifices, some supreme, some less than supreme but God had the final say and He took the ultimate action.”
Obasanjo was jailed for life by Abacha on 1995 over an alleged coup plot, but he was released in 1998 after the death of the military ruler.
He was then twice elected president of Nigeria, from 1999 to 2007, having been a military head of state himself from 1976 to 1979.
CONCERN OVER ELECTIONS
The former president also expressed “serious concern” over the integrity, impartiality and competence of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct a credible election.
He said going by the Osun state gubernatorial election, the forthcoming polls may have “incidences of deliberately contrived, broken or non-working voting machines or card readers, confusion of voters as to their voting stations, inadequate supply of voting materials to designated places, long line to discourage voters and turning blind eyes to favour the blue-eye political party of INEC because the Commission’s hands will be tied to enable hatchet men and women to perform their unwholesome assignment”.
He said the transmission and collation of results are subject to interference, manipulation and meddling while noting that Amina Zakari has become too controversial to take part in the elections.
Obasanjo urged Zakari to “stay out” and “not be seen as a source of contamination of the elections”.
He also accused the All Progressives Congress of “recruiting collation officers who are already awarding results based on their projects to actualise the perpetuation agenda in which the people will not matter and the votes will not count”.
Obasanjo said the alleged recruitment is the “sole reason” the president refused to sign the revised Electoral Reform Bill into law.
CRITICISM FOR VP OSINBAJO
The former president criticised Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo over the “suspect timing” of the implementation of the Trader Moni scheme.
He said: “What an act by a Senior Advocate of Nigeria lawyer, number 2 man in the Executive hierarchy; and what is more, a pastor of one of the Christian movements led by a revered, respected and upright church leader, Pastor E. A. Adeboye. Osinbajo must have gone for, “if you can’t beat them, join them”.
“A great pity indeed and which makes people ask the questions, “Any hope?” Yes, for me, there is hope.
“Osinbajo has shown the human weakness and proved the saying that the corruption of the best is the worst form of corruption. His explanation that it was their government programme can only be construed to be very shallow and lopsided, if not an outrightly idiotic programme.
“Those who criticise the action are called evil but they are not evil as they know what they are doing and saying, and they love Nigeria and Nigerians not less than the likes of Osinbajo. They are not devils incarnate; they are patriots.
“What is the connection between taking the number of PVC (Permanent Voters Card) of the recipient of the N10,000 doled out to ‘traders’ and the forthcoming election? There is something sinister about it, and Professor Osinbajo, of all people, should know that.”
Obasanjo urged Nigerians that are “being intimidated or threatened” to persevere, saying “tough times do not last forever”.

Apc replies obasanjo on his attack against Apc

Following a garage of attacks unleashed by a former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, against the person and government of President Muhammadu Buhari, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has issued a statement, saying that the ex-president is being haunted by his past sins.

In response to a question on whether there had been any fresh development with regard to the resolution of the dispute , Ogunyemi said , “ I ’ am afraid nothing new. I understand they will be meeting us on Monday . Let ’ s wait and see if they take a reasonable step ; it will determine our next line of action. Until then , let ’ s wait and see. ”
The ASUU president had in an exclusive interview with The PUNCH last week said members of the union were tired of government ’ s failed promises .
He said , “ Last year , they promised to release the funds but they did not until November when the strike began. Our members are saying they do not want promises again ; what they want is action, implementation or disbursement of funds .
“ The government must act in a way to convince the union that the agreement has not been set aside. To show that the government has not set aside the agreement , they should release one tranche. ”
He explained that in order to forestall a situation where ASUU and the government would restart negotiations on arrears of earned academic allowances, both sides had agreed that “ it would be mainstreamed into the 2019 budget. ”

Inec set off the training of staff on how to detect and counter fake news on election

The Independent National Electoral Commission has commenced a two - day workshop for its Public Affairs Officers on how to detect and counter fake news on election -related matters .
The training , with the theme ,
Fake news , disinformation and Media Monitoring, was held in collaboration with the European Centre for Electoral Support on Friday in Abuja .
The Resident Electoral Commissioner , INEC -FCT , Yahaya Bello, said that the training would equip the officers on new strategies on how to handle fake news , which has been a concern to the commission.
Bello said that the training would no doubt equip the officers to discharge their duties effectively as the commission prepares for the conduct of free , fair and credible elections .
“ As you already know , the dissemination of fake news has very negative effects not just on elections but other areas of life and must therefore be identified and discountenanced.
“ In particular , INEC is concerned with a situation where mischievous individuals post unofficial election results on the internet . This has the tendency of fomenting violence and mayhem resulting in the loss of precious lives and property .
“ It is on record that fake news gave birth to break up of diplomatic relations of countries, while in other cases resulted into wars or unjustified invasions only to come to terms with the true situation much later and leave the rest to history . ’’
Bello said that in the recent times, INEC severally had its share of fake news, especially after the temporary suspension of the Continuous Voter Registration .
The Executive Director, ECES , Mr Fabio Bargiachi, disclosed that ECES had delivered hard and software that would be installed in the coming days establishing National Media Centre for INEC.
Bargiachi, represented by Dominique Weerts , ECES Senior Capacity Development Expert, said that the centre was established on the request of INEC and in line with recommendations of EU Observation Mission in Nigeria in 2015.
“ The skills and expertise you will acquire from this workshop will be directly relevant to the functioning of this centre . Further support will be considered in due course to expand, strengthen and widen the scope of the media monitoring unit . ’’
Bargiachi said that ECES was committed to contribute to deepening the democracy , saying “ that is why I believe INEC places great store on capacity building so as to cement the gains of previous elections . ’’
He added that the aim of the training was to enhance the officers’ understanding on fake new, by looking at the existing regulatory frameworks governing the media, explore cases of fake news and elections in other parts of the world .
Bargiachi said that was to critically , sharpen the tools at the officers’ disposal to spot and mitigate increasing scourge of fake news and disinformation.

Wike vows to restrict any plot by the inec to postpone rivers election

Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike, has said the alleged plot by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to postpone the 2019 general elections in Rivers state to allow the All Progressives Congress (APC) prepare, will be resisted.
The governor disclosed this on Saturday at the state PDP rally at Okehi.
He alleged that INEC is working in liaison with the APC to illegally postpone Rivers elections and allegedly create room for manipulation.
Wike recalled that INEC had, two years ago in Ondo State, established the precedent that no election would be postponed on the account of intra-party crisis.
“We know all the tricks of INEC. INEC is a fraudulent institution that lacks credibility. Because of Rivers State, INEC will sink.
“As the election is approaching, INEC is trying to give hope to APC in Rivers State. Remember that INEC is a member of the APC. It is number three on the APC official register.
“Two years ago, PDP had a problem in Ondo State. Three days to the election, the Court of Appeal gave judgement and PDP requested for postponement, but INEC bluntly refused to grant that request.
“Now APC has a problem and INEC is claiming they will postpone Rivers elections to give APC opportunity to prepare. I am warning INEC not to try that rubbish in Rivers State “.
The governor said that the INEC Commissioner who is circulating the negative propaganda should seek God’s forgiveness or face divine consequences.
“Anybody plotting against Rivers State will not survive”, he said.
Speaking on the forthcoming elections, Governor Wike urged the people of the state to vote for Atiku Abubakar and other PDP candidates on 16th February and 2nd March, 2019.
He said a vote for Atiku Abubakar will lead to the revival of the national economy, which will provides employment.
Also speaking at the campaign, the National Chairman of PDP, Prince Uche Secondus said that Governor Wike deserves a second term because of his outstanding projects delivery.
The PDP National Chairman warned that any attempt to rig the forthcoming elections will lead to crisis.
