Sacked JAMB registrar denies rift with Education minister

16 August 2016, 21:20

Abuja - Immediate past Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Professor Dibu Ojerinde, has denied reports that he had disagreements with the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, which led to his removal from office, Tribune reports.

He noted that contrary to the speculation, he left office on a good note with the minister.

Media reports had, following the removal of Ojerinde and 16 other heads of agencies in the Ministry of Education on August 1, hinted that the JAMB Registrar, whose second tenure was to expire April 2017, was removed because he had differences with the minister.

Ojerinde during a thanksgiving service held in his honour at the First Baptist Church, Igboho, Oyo State, maintained that he knew of his removal several hours before the announcement and, in fact, sent a text to the minister on the same day to appreciate him.

News24 previously reported how President Muhammadu Buhari fired Dibu Ojerinde and 16 other heads of 17 agencies within the education sector.

The Presidency announced that 17 new chief executives are set to be hired under the aegis of the Ministry of Education
