How Do I Check Admission Status On Jamb CAPS

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) also known as Jamb CAPS is a platform created to ensuring quality control, transparency and credibility of the admission process.

The Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) is expected to make provision for a ‘market place’ in the JAMB portal where institutions can go and ‘request for students in Nigeria who score their cut off points.’

The system is such that institutions can only admit those who meet their cut off points. If a candidate fails to meet the cut off mark, that student would certainly be denied admission irrespective of the candidate’s connection.

The JAMB CAPS for the 2019/2020 admission exercise is now active. Candidates can now monitor their admission status and easily know when they have been offered an admission. Once a candidate has been offered admission on JAMB CAPS, such candidate is required to do either of two things; to accept the admission or to reject it.

Schools have already started uploading their Admission Lists on JAMB Portal. We therefore advise candidates to closely monitor their admission status on JAMB CAPS so as to do the needful as soon as possible.

Some schools may not publish list of admitted candidates on their own portal or notice board. So for candidates that applied for admission in such schools, the only way to know when they have been offered admission is to check their admission status on JAMB CAPS.

Students Unionism in Nigeria: Pains and Gains

These are collection of recognized Individuals by school authority in an Institution. Leaders are been elected or selected to head this Union. These leaders are formed to promote and defend the welfare needs of students community and to SERVE as a bridge between the management, government and students.

It all started with West African student union (wasu) which was pioneered by west African students in London in 1925 was according to records, the first step into unionism, by Nigerian students. The solanke and bankole bright led wasu fought for improved welfare for all African students in London. Their influence in Nigeria brought about NUNS (NATIONAL UNION OF NIGERIA STUDENTS). which premiered in the university of ibadan. NUNS now NANS(NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF NIGERIA STUDENTS). has it wings spread across all tertiary institutions in Nigeria in form of SUG.
history copied from Olushinaola Taiwo

 government, and authorities of our institution all share various degrees of blames in brewing and giving rise to unrest in our institutions of learning in Nigeria..
UNIONISM is a bittersweet experience. Hence, if you must involve be prepared for the PAINs. 
These involves;

1. Rustication: be prepared for Rustication and humiliation. Be prepared emotionally to tackle this pain. History will always be there to tell the future., I remember vividly 2years ago if m not mistaking, the uniben student union president and four others were rusticated due to a peaceful demonstration on Nov 4, 2017, after uniben authorities had increased our fees. Also unilag students leaders were Rusticated 4years ago, . For a two day peaceful protest for students welfare. April 6&7.

2. SLAVERY: Be ready to sell yourself and be controlled By management and others. Everybody requires your loyalty, but to avoid this, you must be loyal and speak for your students if you must not be sold. Be on the students side not management. Get ready to be insulted and bamboozled by ur students if you turn a slave, get ready for emotional, and psychological pain.

 3. Imprisonment: also be prepared to go to prisons. This is part of the the pain in UNIONISM, it is not an easy task or pain to bear. 
The students union leaders of obafemi awololo university was imprisoned for refusing management orders and was arrested while addressing their fellow students. March 3, 2018.
Flash back, to 2016. When the union leader of auchi poly was harassed by soldiers brought by the rector because he wanted an election and not appointment. Be prepared for this

 4. DEATH: This is one of the pains left behind for our beloved once and family to bear. Remember William Obong? The secretary General of the sug UNIBEN, who was murdered due to his resistance to cultism and management... (rip). In 1971, in the university of ibadan, students demanded the removal of an official in the university during the demonstration, tear gas and ammunition was used by the police and a student adekunle adepoja was shot and killed.

The Gains of Student Unionism
This is a sweet one, every body thinks money money money is the Gain of UNIONISM...
If you contest an election with the aim that you want to make money. You will fail. Your gain will turn to frustration.

Students unionism builds an individual
The person who has undergone through this Union can now be able to tell good from bad and makes them to stand firm in decision making, meaning they won't tell you this and be doing contrary to what they have said. It tells you the real you. Your integrity won't be in the lips. It is shown to the world.

UNIONISM makes us meet lot of person we won't meet ordinary, it gives us the opportunity to interact with influential people... Make good use of your connections.

Sense of humour
Students Unionism assist Students to 
develop their organizational abilities and strength of character that prepare
them for higher responsibility in the near future. A good Student Union
leadership provides the leverage for the student community to strive into the
socio-economic and political spheres of the institution and the larger society.
 And lots more
It is pity that, UNIONIST today seek for gains, and try to avoid the pain, remember that you write your history yourself during your service as a union leader, POSTERITY will never forgive you, for your evil deeds... Be remember for your good struggle like Moses Oisakede.

Fun Fact About Nigeria

The name ‘Nigeria’ was coined by Flora Shaw. She was the wife of Lord Lugard – a British soldier who paved the way for Nigeria’s amalgamation and became the first Governor-General of Nigeria. Flora drew inspiration from the great river Niger and combined the words ‘Niger’ and ‘Area’ to form ‘Nigeria’.

Nigeria became a British protectorate in 1901. Colonization lasted until 1960, when an independence movement succeeded in gaining Nigeria its INDEPENDENCE. Nigeria first became a REPUBLIC in 1963 but succumbed to military rule three years later after a bloody coup d'état.

The Nigeria national football team played their first international match against Sierra Leone in Freetown on 8 October 1949.

It took a lot of passion, determination, and selflessness from many great Nigerians to make our independence day a reality in 1960. Here are just a few Nigerians who were instrumental to this cause:

Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe –   known as ‘Zik’, he was the first elected President of Nigeria after independence

 Obafemi Awolowo –    he introduced free education in the Western region of Nigeria and also founded Action Group.

Sir Ahmadu Bello –     founded the Northern People’s Party (NPP) in 1951 which later joined forces with Nnamdi Azikiwe’s NCNC party to fight for independence from the British.

Land Use Decree of Nigeria 1978

The traditional systems of land ownership in Nigeria were considered to be grossly inadequate in solving the problem of agricultural development in the country. Such problems as infighting between individuals and communities on land matters, monopoly of lands by few advantaged individuals, excessive land fragmentation as a result of importance, difficulty in acquiring land either by individuals, groups or even governments, lack of security to land ownership. It was as a result of these problems and in order to give impetus to agricultural development in the country that the Federal Government on March 29, 1978 promulgated the Land Use Decree.
The Decree, which was aimed at encouraging a proper and efficient utilization of land for better agricultural productivity has the following objectives:
(I) To assert and preserve by law the rights of every Nigerian to land in the country.
(II) To create incentive for development by making land easily available to governments and individuals.
(III) To rationalize land use in order to facilitate rapid economic and social transformation in Nigeria.
In essence, the land use decree:
a. Says all land in the country are vested in the Federal Government of Nigeria to be held in trust for the people that is, the acquisition and use of land for whatever purpose are to be controlled by the Federal Government.
b. Empowers each state Government to act on behalf of the Federal Government in all matters related to land in the State.
c. Says that before anybody could be legally recognized as owning any piece of land in the country, he/she must have applied to the State Government, paid for the land and thereafter be issued with Certificate of Occupancy (C of O) on the acquired land.
d. Allows every Nigerian to Acquire land for use once he/she has attained the age 21 years.
Implication of the Land Use Decree
(I) With the Decree, individual ownership of land whether developed or undeveloped now ceases and the only relationship between an individual and the land is that of use.
(II) With the land use decree, there will be enough land for agriculture and industry.
(III) The land use decree does not disposes any Nigerian of his/her acquired property which is being lawfully and optimally used.
(IV) With the decree, the practice of some privileged individuals whereby they buy up large tracts of land with the intent of obtaining high prices in future is prevented.
(v) Any individual above the age of 21 years is allowed to apply for certificate of occupancy or land ownership.
The advantages of land use decree lies in the fact that the land use decree makes it easier to acquire larger parcel of land for agriculture thereby encouraging commercial agriculture. It makes it possible for anybody to acquire land and helps to curb the excesses of land speculators.
   On other hand, some of the disadvantages of land use decree include the fact that the decree makes it further possible for privileged individuals in the society and government to have undue adavantage in land acquisition. It makes land held by inheritance insecure. Also, it is often very difficult to obtain land from government sources because of the frustrating bureaucratic/administrative bottle-necks.

Agricultural Laws and Reforms
(b) Traditional Land ownership and Tenure Systems in West Africa: Land tenure system can be defined as the system of land ownership or acquisition by individual, family, community or government agency either for temporary or permanent use.
   There are different land systems in West Africa, these include;
i) Individual land tenure system
This is the system whereby the land belongs to an individual. The individual could derive his ownership right either by inheritance or outright purchase or as a gift. This system is also refers to as freehold ownership.
1. It gives the owner complete freedom on the land. He may sell it leave it, farm on it, lease/rent it out to another farmer.
2. The land can be used as collateral for agricultural loans.
3. Mechanized agriculture can be profitably practiced.

1. Leads to excessive land fragmentation which makes the land very difficult and uneconomical to work.
2. Land is not readily available to everybody.
3. Sharing of land among children of a deceased father is usually a delicate affair generating bitter enmity among family members.
4. It is very difficult to assess how far the individual has the right to use and control a piece of inherited land freely.
5. Land is not usually sold out because some feel that it will rob future generations of the opportunity go inherit it.
(II) Communal Land Tenure
This is a system of land ownership in which the land belongs to a given community. (a large family or village). The land is usually allocated to members by the head of the family or the community.
1. Every member of the community inopportune to farm each season and to grow annual/biennial crops.
2. It encourages co-operative farming.

Disadvantages of Land Tenure
1. The system relies on plenty of land for fallow.
2. It leads to fragmentation of land into small and scattered units.
3. It also discourages co-operative effort of individual farmers and therefore leading to the non adoption of modern techniques of farming.
4. Permanent crops like oil palm, cocoa, rubber etc cannot be established because the land would be reallocated later.
5. It discourage permanent land improvement such as building of farm structures and alley farming.
6. The land cannot be used as a collateral security in obtaining loan for agricultural production.

(III) Rent Tenancy/Lease Hold
In this system, an individual or a group can acquire land through rent or lease hold agreement. The owner of the land receives rents on the land each season either in cash or in kinds or if on leasehold, an agreed amount is paid for the period the lease would last.
   This system of land ownership gives partial freedom on land. The land, however, cannot be used as security for obtaining agricultural loans. Only moderate land improvement can be effected on the land by the user.
Mechanization can only be introduced if the size of the farm is large enough, but permanent crops cannot be established. The land user could go on to put the land to use other than agricultural production.

(IV) Government
Land can also be acquired through the state government in accordance with the Land Use Decree of 1978. Land acquired through the government usually becomes a property of the person or group that acquired it and as such the person or group is at liberty to use the land as is the case of freehold ownership.
Other systems are ownership by gift/donation, purchase, pledge etc. Where land is acquired by gift/donation, the owner pays nothing for it. The land may however not be secured when the donor is no more.
