I Have Never In My Life Collected A Bribe – JAMB Registrar

Jamb registrar prof Is-haq Oloyede

JAMB Registrar, Prof Is-haq Oloyede, has denied the fraud allegations leveled against him by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, claiming he has never collected bribe from anyone.

Prof. Oloyede is being accused together with the incumbent vice chancellor of the Unilorin university, Abdulganiy Ambali, of fraud totalling more than N2 billion.

Other allegations levelled against the duo include pension fraud, unremitted deductions, extortion from students, contract inflation and kick-backs; as well as unlawful payments to
ex-principal officers of the university.

In his reaction, Mr. Oloyede denied all the allegations. The don said he has never taken bribe, extorted anyone, inflated contracts nor accepted gifts from any contractor.

The JAMB registrar also maintained that he operated a transparent system within the period he served the university as vice chancellor.

“I am extremely selective in accepting gifts from even personal friends. My needs are limited and my legitimate income is sufficient to spend on my volunteer work,” the JAMB boss said.

“I have never in my life collected bribe, inflated contracts, extorted anyone nor accepted gifts beyond “Thank You greeting cards” from any contractor, dead or alive.”

The JAMB boss however called on the anti-graft agency, EFCC, to investigate the allegations and take necessary action after establishing the truthfulness of the case brought before it by the
union.
