Beware of fake admission promises - Anambra Varsity warns  public


By Chinwe Nwacha, Onitsha
   
The University on the Niger (U-ON), Anambra State, weekend, warned members of the public to beware not to fall victims to fraudsters said to be defrauding unsuspecting individuals in the pretext of promise of admission into the institution.
        
According to the authorities of the university, some unscrupulous persons who claim to represent the institution are going about promising admission to unsuspecting candidates in exchange for monetary gains.
         
In a seven-paragraph press release signed by the Registrar of the university, Mrs Odisa C. Okeke, the institution roundly condemned the practice and consequently warned the public to be circumspect in dealings with its admission processes.          

The release in part read, "Please be informed that the University on the Niger has not started admission process for the 2023/2024 academic session. Note that admission process must go through the JAMB".
            
The document further stated, "All official communication regarding admissions, including notifications, application processes and requirements, is solely disseminated through our official channels, which includes our university website, official social media platforms and designated admission offices".
         
The authorities reiterated their position that they had not employed any agent or intermediaries for the purpose of admission, adding that any claims made by individuals or organisations suggesting otherwise were entirely false.
        
The university therefore urged all potential applicants to exercise due diligence
and rely solely on information provided through its authorized channels.
        
"Once again, we emphasize that any fraudulent admission claims not originating from our official channels are unauthorised and should be disregarded", the release added.
        
Meanwhile, the National Universities Commission (NUC), has concluded an accreditation visit to the university over its programmes, departments and faculties. 
         
According to the university authorities, the Nigerian Medical Council is also expected to visit the university in preparation for the admission of its first intake of students.
