The registrar said the university would soon release the result of the examinations.
The Registrar of the University of Jos, Danjuma Jillidandam, on Wednesday shoved the threat of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, by insisting that its 2013/2014 post UTME examination remains valid.
The chairman of the University of Jos chapter of ASUU, David Jangkam, had on Tuesday, in
a press conference on the ongoing national strike by the union, said the post-UTME conducted by the university in the absence of academic staff would be cancelled.
Mr. Jangkam said only the teaching staff of the university could conduct the exams and since they had gone on strike for genuine reasons, the university authority should suspend the annual post-UTME until academic work resumes at the university.
However, in a statement on Wednesday, the school’s registrar asked the public and the candidates to disregard “any contrary announcement from any trade union pertaining the ongoing post-UTME screening in the University.
“Candidates eligible to participate in the exercise are advised to avail themselves of this opportunity to be screened for consideration for admission into the University,” Mr. Jillidandam said.
The registrar also assured the candidates that the ongoing examinations were not only valid but the results would be released.
“Management wishes to assure candidates that the results of the post-UTME screening will be available on the University website,” he stated.
