I have never collected bribe says JAMB Registrar

02 January 2017, 17:13

Abuja - The Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, Is-haq Oloyede, has declared that he has never collected bribe from anyone, Premium Times reports.

Oloyede, who is also the immediate past Vice Chancellor of the University of Ilorin, made this disclosure while reacting to allegations of fraud levelled against him by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.

The union had in a petition sent to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, accused Oloyede and the incumbent vice chancellor of the university, Abdulganiy Ambali, of fraud totalling more than N2 billion.

Other allegations levelled against the duo include pension fraud, unremitted deductions, extortion from students, contract inflation and kick-backs; as well as unlawful payments to ex-principal officers of the university according to Naij.

In his reaction, Oloyede denied all the allegations. The don said he has never taken bribe, extorted anyone, inflated contracts nor accepted gifts from any contractor.

The JAMB registrar also maintained that he operated a transparent system within the period he served the university as vice chancellor.
