The second day of UNIZIK post utme screening test was hugely successful as the University improved very fast in crowd control and other areas. Recall that on the first day even though the number of candidates was large we could not finish screening all the candidates.

But the second day was a revelation as some hackers were caught attempting to hack into our data base thereby slowing down our servers. Also some impersonators were caught and handed over to security agents. It is now clear to us that a syndicate is operating to undermine the process because of the stiff measures we are implementing to avoid impersonators.

These measures include that candidates must be processed by thumb printing and checking of relevant documents. Those who were opposed to these processes for selfish reasons were quick to criticize the University forgetting that due process is an integral part of integrity. It is now clear that the second day ended successfully as all candidates were screened before 5pm.

This enabled the candidates to go home without being stranded. For those from far places who do not have a place to stay, the University Vice -Chancellor Prof. Joseph Ahaneku, FAS graciously directed that the hostels, both male and female, should be made available to such candidates.

The University is mindful of its responsibility to these candidates and will not expose them to any inconvenience. This is why we took actions on the second day to improve more. Recall that the University had earlier expressed its apologies tocandidates and their parents for the first day hitches.  Now that the second day has moved smoothly we assure that subsequent days will even be smoother.

This is why we have now readjusted the schedule by extending the days to reduce long wait by our candidates and their parents / guardians.

It is important to remind candidates and their parents/guardians that UNIZIK admission is strictly by merit. It is not advisable to pay money to anyone for admission. Any such money paid is illegal and a waste. Finally the University continues to apologize to our candidates who could not be screened on Monday. Those candidates are now to come on Friday. The University reiterates its determination to always carry out its mandate in the interest of the public. We are determined.
