The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has remitted additional N3.6 billion to the nation’s treasury.
The Registrar of the Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, said this on Tuesday during a meeting with Executives of Colleges of Education Academic Staff Union (COESU) in his office in Bwari, Abuja.
He said the N5.2 billion earlier sent to the treasury was not the total money the Board actually transferred to the government.
Prof. Oloyede said “more monies generated from the sale of 2017 admission documents were transferred”, adding that “the Board had so far remitted N7.8 billion to the treasury”.
Earlier the COESU National President, Nuhu Ogirima, had said the transfer of over N5 billion to the “nation’s coffers would remain quite indelible.”
