The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has remitted another N7.8 billion to the Federal Government.
Its Head, Media and Information, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, said in Lagos, said the amount was surplus generated from the conduct of the 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
He said: “However, government, in its magnanimity, graciously directed that we remit about N5.6 billion and use the balance for restructuring of the board’s headquarters.
Benjamin said cumulatively and technically, the board had remitted a total of N15.6 billion in less than two years.
We are currently looking at a number of ways to enhance the conduct of the examination where candidates will benefit by way of conducive environment in writing the examination, he added.
“We are also looking at putting more mechanism in place that will ensure absolute equity and fairness in the selection of candidates through enhanced technology as currently being done by the Central Admission Process Selection (CAPS).”
