ON TESTS

  1. UTAS passed integrity test 100%
  2. In the first test NITDA brought people outside the university system to participate in User Acceptability Test (UAT).
    Of course, you don’t expect them to understand UTAS.
  3. NITDA scored UTAS fail for NUC not having fire extinguishers at the office where the UTAS server should be hosted (Is NUC no longer a government owned and funded establishment?)
  4. In the second test where ASUU insisted that there should be observers, UTAS passed all the tests 100%
  5. NITDA hacker spent one week trying to hack into UTAS without success
  6. The SSL with which UTAS was developed is homegrown and hackproof.
  7. The only disagreement with NITDA was NITDA’s insistence that there should be no symbols in names which ASUU rejected as there are many names with symbols all over the world and the university can hire staff from any part of the world.
  8. The DG of NITDA confessed that he was ambushed by Communication Minister and given a note to read failing UTAS even while the tests were ongoing
  9. It is clear that UTAS is being pantamized.
  10. UTAS was developed by the best IT brains in the country, many of whom taught the engineers at NITDA.
  11. The engineers at NITDA have nothing but praises for UTAS
  12. The politicians in the IPPIS racket have nothing but condemnation for UTAS. UTAS when adopted shall kill IPPIS, their cash cow.
  13. UTAS will make it impossible for principalities from above to insert names on the payroll
  14. UTAS will make it impossible for rats at AoG’s office to nibble away people’s hard earned salary
  15. UTAS will make it impossible for principalities from above to disappear salary arrears.
