The remittance, according to the board’s Head, Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin, in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), was the surplus generated from the conduct of the board’s 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
Benjamin in the report, paid tribute to the commitment of the examination body’s board to transparency, saying: “We want to appreciate the governing board of JAMB led by Dr Emmanuel Ndukwe for the tremendous support in ensuring that the current administration’s vision of transparency and accountability as fully embraced by JAMB is sustained.
“The Ndukwe-led board had, within its short period of inauguration, contributed immensely in some ground breaking innovations.
“One of such innovations is the quick remittance of the 2018 surplus. Whatever candidates pay for JAMB’s examination is a trust and must be accounted for.”
