Jos – The Post-UME screening of candidates into the University of Jos began yesterday in spite of a resolution by the institutionâ€™s Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to postpone the exercise.
The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Sonni Tyoden, told newsmen that the exercise, being conducted by the management and some academic staff in conjunction with a consulting firm, had been successful so far.
Tyoden, who spoke through the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Academic, Prof. Betram Nwufo, said the screening had proved to be the most successful over the years.
He, however, said managing the large number of candidates and their inability to adhere to laid down procedures posed minor problems.
Members of the institutionâ€s chapter of ASUU had said in a statement last Wednesday that the timing of the screening was inauspicious.
