The management of the Joint admission matriculation board (JAMB) Has called for the help of the federal government concerning the funding of the 2017 UTME Examination.
The Registrar of the Board mr prof Is Haq Oloyede, explained on Tuesday that The major challenge facing the board has to do with funding. “He Said we take N5,000 from each candidate; we do not even have the money to conduct the examination.
He Also Disclosed that the capital allocation was N1bn; the release so far is N45.57m; the overhead cost is N50m allocated, but N24.9m is what we have received so far.
“The N24.9 million given is not sufficient to pay electricity bills because all the 36 states and zonal offices depend on what comes from headquarters for their funding.”
He thereby pleaded with the senate not to carry out the passing of the bill of extending JAMB Result Validity To three (3) years because it will affect the board more.
