President Muhammadu Buharo has re-appointed Professor Is-haq Oloyede as the Registrar of the Joint Admission And Matriculation Board (JAMB).
Oloyede was on Friday reappointed by the President for another five-year term as registrar of JAMB, the agency established by the government in 1978 “to conduct matriculation examinations for entry into all universities polytechnics and colleges of education in the country and to place suitably qualified candidates in the available places in these institutions”.
During his first term, Oloyede, amongst other reforms, was noted to have significantly increased the remittances of JAMB to the Federal Government.
Oloyede until his reappointment is Professor of Arabic and Islamic Jurisprudence.
He was said to have brought innovations to the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board since his first appointment as Registrar on August 6, 2016.
During Oloyede’s first tenure the growing figures of the Board had ranked it in the league of top government agencies with high remittances.
