The Governor of Edo State, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has laid the foundation of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB)’s 500-seating capacity Computer-Based Test Centre (CBT) in Benin City
“The state government took the responsibility to provide the site for the project to enable our people have easy access to CBT Centre within the state, we did all within our resources to get the land for the project,” he added. Mr. Obaseki assured JAMB that the state government would provide the centre with electricity and construct access roads to the centre, adding, “the provision of power supply and construction of access road to the centre will be captured in the state’s 2018 budget.”
He commended the federal government for its commitment to the release of funds for the project and for the introduction of CBT for JAMB examinations which he said would help check examination malpractices. The governor appealed for the reopening of the University Matriculation Examination centre in Uromi, as the state government is investigating the issue which led to the closure of the centre and would ensure that the findings of the investigations are implemented.
The Registrar of JAMB, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, commended the governor for his prompt action in securing the land for the project and the partnership with JAMB towards completing the project. Prof. Oloyede said the siting of the zonal CBT centre in the state was as a result of the fact that the state records more candidates for the examinations, adding “the siting of the centre would give prospective JAMB candidates in the state easy access to CBT centre. The state was ranked 7th in enrollment for JAMB examination and ranked 22nd in availability of facilities for candidates writing the examinations.”
The JAMB Registrar added that the CBT centre would address the challenge of facilities in the state, as the Board has an arrangement with the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) to build the South-South Zonal CBT Centre in the state. Other dignitaries at the event were; the Registrar of the National Business and Technical Examinations Board (NABTEB), Prof. Ifeoma Isiugo-Abanihe; the Deputy Vice Chancellor Academics, University of Benin, Prof. Pius Iribhogbe; and the state Commissioner for Education, Dr. Christopher Adesotu.

Lagos tenant uses Landlord’s apartment to dupe house appliance vendors of N50 million
Hey peepz, I have a gist tho I don’t know if it’s true or not..But I will say it Sha. I was just walking on the street 2receive fresh air when I saw a couple. d man was telling his wife about an incident. I kukuma slowed down an walked behind them to hear d full gist.
It was more like a scam story. A certain man walked up to a Landlord in our area and requested to rent his apartment for 2 months, with the excuse that he was traveling to Canada and just came to Lagos for the Visa Processing.. They agreed on 150K.
The man paid and took ownership of the apartment.He then went out to Vendors in town and negotiated to buy expensive items on lease. With installment payment plans.. He was said to have collected home appliance worth N50,000,000 from various vendors.
He then took them all to the apartment one by one to build trust. At least once they know he lives there, they can easily come around and pack their stuffs if he defaults, these people didn’t know what would hit them was going to be deadlier than Tsunami.
As agreed with the Landlord, the man packed out even earlier than expected… Left with all the items, of which he had not finished the payment..and the Landlord was so happy to have struck a better deal He immediately rented out the apartment to another family.
One by one, the creditors began to come in and same story was relieved to them.. Some fainted, some threatened hell fire …. To cut the long story short, Baba Ijebu was arrested alongside the new tenant.. You know Naija now… #POLICE no wan hear wuen
They were only saved after a Landlord intervened. He is a legal practitioner and took up the case. But sincerely speaking. I wonder how some people feel at rest knowing fully well their victims would suffer. I guess it all centers on lack of conscience. This is bad #dojon

What could have taken the life of a middle-aged man, identified only as Muyibi, who collapsed and died in a commercial cab in the Ojota area of Lagos State.
PUNCH Metro reports that Muyibi boarded the cab after withdrawing money from a United Bank for Africa branch in the Ogudu area. Then the driver had turned to to take his fee from Muyibi when he realized the man had become motionless. After reaching the terminus, a resident told Punch’s correspondent that the driver alighted from the cab to slightly push Muyibi, who was cold.
The resident, who did not want to be identified, said,
“The driver had picked some other passengers along the way, and they had all paid and dropped off at their various bus stops.
“When the victim did not respond when they got to the terminus, the driver parked the cab to rouse him, but he was cold.
The driver raised the alarm, which drew the attention of commuters and passersby to the scene. People checked him and discovered that the man was dead.”
Policemen from the Ogudu division were said to have been alerted to the incident. The driver’s vehicle was impounded just like that, while the man’s body was deposited in a morgue.
A source person at the terminus who spoke with Punch newspaper confirmed the incident, saying:
“It happened around 3pm on Friday. The man went to withdraw some money in UBA. The Ogudu Divisional Police Officer was compassionate; she pitied the cab driver, who had become jittery.

Lagos state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Chike Oti, said the police recovered N100,200 from the victim’s bag.
