The Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, said on Thursday the body would return unspent money to the Federal Government’s coffers.

He said the controversies trailing the huge amount returned to government’s coffers this year was unnecessary.

Oloyede 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, JAMB 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.”
