Lawmakers Commend JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, Over N3bn Remittance


Members of the Senate and House Committees on Tertiary Education and
Services yesterday commended the registrar of the Joint Admissions and
Matriculation Board, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, over the remittance of N3bn to
the federation account. They gave the commendation when Oloyede was
making his presentation after the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu
Adamu, had defended the ministry’s 2020 budget estimates.

A
member of the Senate Committee on Tertiary Education, Sam Egwu,
commended Oloyede for repositioning the JAMB “from negativity to
positivity”, testifying that when he (Egwu) was Minister of Education,
Oloyede was among the top vice chancellors of universities in the
country.

Similarly, Senator Tolu Odebiyi and Honourable Musbau
Kolawole commended Oloyede for turning the Board around. Oloyede, while
reviewing the 2019 budget performance, said the JAMB had, since 2017,
stopped receiving capital and overhead allocations from the Federal
Government and had taken over the total funding of its capital and
overhead cost. Oloyede told the lawmakers that “a major problem of the
Board is examination malpractice and the involvement of parents who
actually are the perpetrators of examination malpractice.” He also
stated: “The Board as usual, despite the reduction of application cost
by 30% has returned N3bn to FGN this year apart from the N2bn set aside
for capital development.

The Board shall aspire to make higher
returns next year while making considerable improvement in the quality
of its services.” Co-chairmen, Senator Ahmed Baba Kaita and Honourable
Aminu Suleiman later called for a voice vote that Oloyede take a bow and
leave.
