The University of Lagos (UNILAG) says it has postponed its Post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (Post-UTME) earlier scheduled for Sept. 18 to Sept. 22 indefinitely.
This was made known by institution’s Registrar and Secretary to Council, Dr Taiwo Ipaye, on Tuesday.
Ipaye through the school’s website said that “candidates and the public are requested to visit the institution’s website regularly for information on the new dates.
“However, this postponement does not affect the ongoing application for the post-UTME screening which closes officially on Sept. 15.’’
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the postponement is coming on the heels of the indefinite strike by the Joint Action Committee (JAC) of non-teaching staff of universities.
JAC comprises of members of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), the Non Academic Staff Union (NASU) and NAAT.
Members of the various labour unions of universities were agitating the non-implementation of the agreement it entered into with the Federal Government in 2009.
