While inaugurating the N1.19bn CBT centre along the Tafawa Balewa Way, Kaduna, the state governor, Malam Nasir El-Rufai and the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu. hailed the JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, for his prudent management of resources.

According to them, the JAMB boss has proven that Nigeria will progress if public institutions are manned by upright, honest and dedicated public servants.

Speaking while at the commissioning centre, El-Rufai noted that his successor would continue to support the Board to expand its facilities in the state.

He noted that when the idea was muted about four years ago to build “Professional Testing Centers,” the state did all it could to support the Board in its effort in reforming JAMB.

El-Rufai said, “All we have done to waive any monetary compensation on this land, is in recognition of the good work that Professor Oloyede is doing.

We are immensely proud of the transformation and reforms he has introduced in JAMB and, as state governments, we are all beneficiaries of the huge surpluses that you have remitted to the federation account and it is therefore our duty to do whatever we can to support you. Any financial waiver given to JAMB is to the benefit of the states of Nigeria.”
In his address at the event, the Minister of Education said JAMB under Prof. Oloyede had, despite its huge remittances to the Federal Government coffers, remained a leading light in public project execution.
