UNMGCY/UNICEF/IOM 3rd Migration And Innovation Youth Forum -United Arab Emirate

APPLY TO PARTICIPATE IN THE 3rd EDITION OF THE MIGRATION YOUTH FORUM AND THE 1st EDITION OF the YOUTH LEADERSHIP & INNOVATION AWARD FOR MIGRATION IN JANUARY 2021!

The annual Global Forum on Migration and Development (GFMD) summit is a state-led, informal, and non-binding process which helps shape the global debate on migration and development. Since 2007, the GFMD has gradually evolved from a government-only process into a multi-stakeholder mechanism bringing together national governments, civil society, the private sector, cities, local/regional governments. Recently, the GFMD has opened its doors to youth representatives – first through the GFMD Civil Society Mechanism a few years back, and then in 2019 in a structured way across all mechanisms and spaces.

Through the UN Major Group for Children and Youth (UNMGCY), youth have been actively engaged in the GFMD, since 2018, where the first Migration Youth Forum was organized in partnership with IOM and UNICEF, and held in conjunction with the Intergovernmental Conference on the Global Compact for Migration where the Youth Forum served as a space to promote policies reflecting the priorities and needs of young people. Youth also participated formally in the GFMD through the civil society mechanism and addressed the Marrakesh Summit. The second Youth Forum was held in conjunction with the most important migration-related event of the year 2019-2020 – the GFMD Summit in Quito. The space served to promote peer-to-peer learning, as well as to prepare action plans for the year ahead.

THE MIGRATION YOUTH FORUM

JAMB Regularization For Candidates Admitted Into Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) Distance Learning Undergraduate Programmes

The Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) Distance Learning Centre (DLC) management has published the procedure for admitted candidates to regularize their admission with the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).

JAMB Regularization for Candidates Admitted  into ABU Distance Learning Programmes

All new students are expected to visit the nearest JAMB state office in their state of domicile with their relevant documents of admission to regularize their admissions. This should be done unfailingly immediately after the conclusion of screening and admission before the commencement of their first examination in the Centre.

It should be noted that the above procedure for the regularization can only be done in a state office of JAMB and not in a JAMB CBT accredited Centre. The JAMB presently charged N3,500 for the service. This is without prejudice to any adjustments that may be made by JAMB in the future.

The regularization should be done on the Distance Learning Program platform on the JAMB portal only not on part-time or sandwich platform.

In conclusion of the above procedure and acquisition of a JAMB regularization number, the evidence as provided by JAMB should be submitted to the liaison offices or sent to the Secretary’s office at the Distance Learning Centre’s Headquarters for further processing.
