I don’t have respect for many people with big cars – JAMB Registrar


Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Registrar Prof. Is-haq Oloyede has spoken of his distaste for many owners of luxury cars suggesting that their wealth was ill-gotten.

Oloyede, who under his leadership the examination board generated whopping N9b, a feat that never happened before while delivering the 10th convocation lecture of the Tai Solarin University of Education (TASUED), Ijagun, Ogun State said corruption is the bane of Nigeria, adding that most Nigerians who live big corruptly enriched themselves.

“In terms of corruption, I have seen how very wicked we are against one another in this country. I don’t even respect many people with big cars because I have information about them,” he said.

The former Vice-chancellor University of Ilorin also told of how he surpassed the expectations of disgraced ex-Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosun ,and her Education counterpart, Adamu Adamu  saying “After my appointment, the Minister of Education called me and said from information available you should be able to generate N500 million for the Federal Government.

“The former Minister for Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun, who is also from Ogun State, also called me and said your office should be able to give us N300 million or N200 million. I was really wondering how this was going to work given the past record of JAMB.

“I am, however, surprised that JAMB had N9 billion left for the Federal Government. In fact, I could not sleep, I will again go and check to ensure there were no error anywhere. Look at what this huge amount will do to our economy.”
