Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, Registrar, Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has stated that there is no clash between the board’s timetable and the West African Examination Council (WAEC) as being widely speculated and criticized.

The JAMB Registrar made this known at an interactive session with Editors in Lagos yestersay, that there was no basis for such speculation because the organization was holding annual meetings with the examination bodies to reconcile areas of interest.

“We meet annually with WAEC, NECO and other bodies to reconcile because we have the same target of education development,” Oloyede stated.

Prof. Oloyede said those attacking him and the system out of ignorance would not succeed in distracting him from pursing the target of ensuring national development through sound education for Nigerians

He explained that the government slashed the registration fees for candidates from N5,000 based on advice from the examination board, an action he said would encourage registration of more candidates for higher education and eventual national development.

The Registrar said that JAMB, under his administration, was determined to clean the system with legitimate approach.
