Unilorin's Move To Close Portal Causes Stir As Students Threaten To Protest - Education - RMWO

The University of Ilorin (UNILORIN) has announced its intention to close its portal for the uploading of results for the 2019 Joint Universities Preliminary Examinations Board (JUPEB) at midnight, August 20, 2019.

The decision, however turned out to be an unpopular one, as candidates from other JUPEB centres who had preselected UNILORIN as their choice of institution for admission but were yet to receive their results, kicked against the sudden rush by the university to close its portal.

One of the candidates who spoke to our medium on condition of anonymity, accused the management of foul play, stressing that while candidates of other universities who participated in the 2019 JUPEB exams were yet to receive their results, the internal candidates from UNILORIN who received theirs today, August 20, had been informed to immediately upload their results on the portal, which the management stated would be closed by midnight same day.

The aggrieved candidate berated the University of Ilorin for inordinately nursing plans to admit only students who sat for the exams in the institution while shutting out candidates from other institutions who chose UNILORIN as their preferred choice.

Another embittered candidate who confided to our reporters, urged the Federal Government and the National University Commission to intervene in the looming crisis before it escalates into a protest.

We also learnt that the management of the University of Ilorin, had yesterday issued a notice to all internal JUPEB candidates to immediately upload their results on the portal prior to the midnight deadline.

The message reads:

“This is to inform all students that the collection of results is tomorrow. Please you are expected to upload your results immediately you get it, because Unilorin portal will close at exactly 12 midnight, 20th August, 2019. Upload as soon as you get your results irrespective of your points to be on the safe side.

“Time: 10am, Venue: Science Education at Mr Badmus’ office.”

JUPEB is one of the available options to gain admission into Nigerian universities.
