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.
