- The University authorities withdrew the merit admission list released recently over alleged irregularities.
The University of Lagos has reportedly withdrawn the 2017/2018 admission list it recently released.
The University authorities withdrew the merit admission list released recently over alleged irregularities.
Confirming the development to New Telegraph, the university’s Deputy Registrar, Information, Mr. Oluwatoyin Adebule said the University management withdrew the list to investigate the veracity of the allegation of irregularities levelled against it.
He also said that the withdrawal of the list is important to protect the integrity of the university.
Speaking to Pulse about the development, a lecturer in the institution, Taiwo Ojapinwa said he heard about the withdrawal of the list but he could not confirm its truthfulness.
Ojapinwa said, “I heard so but I can not confirm that. The only thing I am sure of is that I was told that may be a lot of people were unable to submit their O level and as a result, they wanted to shut those people out, maybe the management now says they should give everybody fair hearing and allow them to know.”
But whether they have withdrawn the list, I can’t really confirm, because when I was driving to school, a prospective student whose name is on the first list called me that she heard it has been cancelled, but I told her I can’t confirm the statement. So, that is the same thing I will tell you now.
The release of the merit admission list has caused rancours between parents and the management as some parents are said to have gone to court to sue the University over alleged irregularities in the merit admission list released in October.
Names of a number of prospective students who scored above their departmental cut-off points are allegedly missing in the list.
Although some of the students are expecting the release of the supplementary admission list.
But there are questions on why the names of students who scored above cutoff points are not on the list.
