Joint Admission and Matriculation Board had said the board is ready to commence the publication of a bulletin of its day to day activities on finance for the purpose of transparency.

Head, Media and Information, JAMB, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Lagos.

He said the publication of the bulletin will be known as “Jambulletin” and will be published every Monday and would also not be for sale.

“The board has concluded plans to commence a weekly publication, “Jambulletin” for the public. This is in compliance with President Muhammad Buhari-led administration’s directive of full disclosure of all financial transactions in the public sector, in line with his transparency agenda.

“This bulletin will therefore, contain the board’s financial inflow and expenditure for every week.

“The board is taking transparency to another level. Nigerians will be able to read new editions of this bulletin every Monday on our website.

“The emphasis here is transparency. The board wants to be open with its financial activities. We will also distribute the bulletins to offices and individuals who are interested,” Benjamin stated.

The bulletin will also serve as an update to the public on progress made in the registration exercise, while it lasts.
