JAMB speaks on being revenue-generating agency, reveals Registrar Oloyede’s principle


The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, on Friday disclosed that the principle of its Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, is that government business can always be done irrespective of the amount available for such task.

The Board’s Head of Media, Dr Fabian Benjamin, made this disclosure to ENTRANCEEXAM when called upon to react to the perception of JAMB in some quarters as a revenue-generating agency.

According to him, “His (Oloyede’s) principle is that government business can always be done as nobody has said JAMB is a revenue generating agency.

“If you as an individual, your father sends you with say N5000, and you find out that you could only expend N2000 for what you were sent to do, are you saying you’ll throw the N3000 into the ocean. A good child will return the money back to his father. And when you return that money, does it mean that the child is a revenue generating child?” Benjamin asked.

It would be recalled that Oloyede had earlier this month confirmed that the board realized N8.4 billion from the sale of 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, applications.

According to him, “The board realized N8.4 billion from the sale of 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) applications. People actually thought that N5,500 that we collect for UTME application goes straight to JAMB purse.

“They calculate that by the number of candidates that registered for the exam and arrive at a figure. But, in actual sense, less than that enters the purse of JAMB. Others are for expenditures that are needed for the success of the exam.”
