NAIJ.com gathered that he said JAMB is not a wasteful agency, adding that whatever comes in would be appropriately remitted into the federal government purse.

The former vice chancellor of the University of Ilorin told journalists in Ilorin, Kwara state, that the Admission Board would be strengthened to make it a self-sustaining agency of government.

He said: “I am not aware of any agency that is with the nature of JAMB in the world that is being funded by government. But in Nigeria, because, we are used to something that is not proper and to get us out of what is improper will even be strange.”

He said JAMB would improve on its activities in the coming years and urged all stakeholders in the education sector to be honest in the discharge of their responsibilities.
