“We Don’t Have Money To Conduct Jamb” – Registrar Cries Out

The registrar of JAMB, Professor Is-haq Oloyede, has said that the board cannot adequately fund the conduct of Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) on Wednesday while he received a delegation of the senate committee on tertiary institutions and Tertiary Education Trust fund (TETFund).
prof-ishaq-oloyede-600x338He explained:

“The major challenge facing the board has to do with funding; we take N5,000 from each candidate; we do not even have the money to conduct the examination.

“Rather, we call on third party to do some of the things and they only give some commission to JAMB, because we do not have enough money to invest.

“Conduct of examination across the country requires intensive human participation; you will recruit invigilators and monitors and then it costs so much money to set exam questions.

“The capital allocation is N1 billion; the release so far is N45. 57million; the overhead cost is N50 million allocated, but N24.9 million is what we have received so far.

“The N24.9 million given is not sufficient to pay electricity bills because all the 36 states and zonal offices depend on what comes from headquarters for their funding,” O

    If JAMB got no money to conduct the exams, then is an advantage to students who buys it, let JAMB adopt the University style of giving admissions now without any post UTME………………….
