Prof. Morenikeji stated that the University Management has concluded all logistical arrangements needed to conduct another hitch-free screening exercise that has been the tradition of the institution while expressing optimism that the on-going strike action would not affect the exercise.

“Those who are willing to assist us to conduct the exercise will be contracted and they will be paid for the job. So, I do not see any problem why the screening exercise will not hold as scheduled”, the DVC (Academic) enthused.

The Chairman UPASE, said the corps members have been trained on the procedures for the screening exercise while revealing that the University is expecting 10, 000 candidates for the exercise and that over 7, 000 candidates have concluded their registrations as at Wednesday, September 13, 2017. He further maintained that the deadline for registration for the screening exercise remains 12 midnight of September 15, 2017 as advertised by the University and that failure to register for the exercise online before the schedule time would amount to disqualification.

On the facilities on ground for the exercise, the Professor of Urban and Regional Planning said the University has increased the number of computers at the Electronic Test Centre from 400 computers to 800 computers so that the exercise would only take four batches per day instead of eight batches that was used last year.
