Remittance Of Surplus To Federal Coffers Is Beneficial -Oloyede


…Mulls Upward Review Of Service Charges

The Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, during a recent visit to the Ogun State office of the Board said the remittances of surpluses to the coffers of the Federal Government since he assumed office is beneficial, especially to the staff.

Prof. Oloyede explained that the
remittances of the surpluses build
sustainability for staff.

He added that if the government directs that salaries of staff to be paid by the
Board, it might be a little difficult as
the total of 6 billion naira is needed to pay salaries but the surplus returned this year was 4 billion naira and that is far from the amount needed.

He said the money is protected and prepares the Board for any eventualities.

He further stated that work on the
proposed Southwest 7,000 capacity
Professional Test Centre has been put on hold because workers at the project site are waiting for the issues on the land to be resolved.

He, however, clarified that the Certificate of Occupancy had been issued to the Board by the former Governor of the state, Mr. Ibikunle Amosun.

He said when the centre is ready, candidates from the Southwest are free to choose to write UTME in Abeokuta as all examinations could even be conducted at the centre.

Mrs Kafayat lbiwoye, Head of Matriculation Monitoring, explained that the cost of diesel and electricity units has increased and this must not stop the office from rendering services to the public and pleaded that something should be done about it.

The Registrar responded that there
might be a review of service charges
upward as the running cost of the
the organisation is affected by the
general increase in the cost of living
in the country.

He stated categorically that he had
information about corruption in the
office and directed that a comprehensive report be sent to him in that regard.

He also gave directives that would enhance the smooth-running and well-defined structure of the office and steps have been taken in this regard.

The State Coordinator, Mr. Hakeem
AbdulHameed, represented by some embers of staff, appreciated the Registrar for his visit, constant transparency initiatives and prayed that the Board under his administration be more efficient and effective.
