UNIJOS Mistakenly Awards 29 Students First Class Degrees


Twenty nine students of the University of Jos (UNIJOS) have been awarded first class degrees in error due to a technical problem from the ICT department. This was disclosed by the dean of faculty of law of the institution, Professor Dakas C Dakas, who said that the error would be resolved soon,
The error  gathered occurred on the institution’s convocation ceremony web portal. Twenty nine graduands of the department of law, 2015/2016 academic session, bagged first class degree in error.
The dean of the institution said: “The degrees were awarded to the graduands in error. It was an internal problem that would be resolved soon. The students have attested to the fact that their class of degree was awarded in error.”
According to him, the university authority is working round the clock to resolve the problem ahead of the 29th and 30th combined convocation coming up on June 23. The department of law only produced one first class graduate in the person of Olusegun Pelumi Adewunmi, 2015/2016 set.
Those that were awarded the first class erroneously said they logged into the web portal to discover the error. One of the graduands said: “I have a 2.1 (second class upper division) but my class of degree on that page was first class.”

KWASU Professors To Earn Higher Salaries – Abdul Rasheed Na'Allah

The Vice-Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Abdulrasheed Na’Allah, made this known during a reception for the winner of the maiden edition of the award, Prof. Kazeem Gbolagade, held on Thursday at the institution’s main campus in Malete.
Announcing that the maximum level for professors under the salary scale is Level seven step 10, Na’Allah said that KWASU professors, who merited the PAA, could earn higher salaries, depending on the availability of funds.
The vice-chancellor described the PAA as a post-professional review process designed for keeping professors active and productive in the tripartite areas of teaching, research and community development.
He said that to qualify for the PAA, except in exceptional or accelerated circumstances, a full professor must have spent a minimum of three years as a member of the academic staff of the university.
Na’Allah also stated that there must not necessarily be one winner of the award, adding that applicants who meet the criteria could all become winners.
He said, “Henceforth, through the Centre for Innovation in Teaching and Research, KWASU will be holding this ceremony to recognize those that have met the criteria for the award.
We shall recognize them by giving them a plaque, celebrating them and by ensuring that when budget permits that they are rewarded financially by permanently increasing their salaries.
“In public universities, most of us use the Federal Government-ASUU agreed salary structure. If you are a full professor, you are in Seven Step 10, which is the highest you can go. But professors in KWASU do not have a limit as long as they are productive and they do great work.
“Professors must be productive. The goal of KWASU is to say, becoming a professor is actually the beginning of the kind of the contributions that you must make to enhance the achievements of this university. It is not the end of it. You have no other choice than to teach, do research and get grants and do community outreach.”
