In response to a question about the level of preparations for the mock UTME, Oloyede, who has been nominated for an award of excellence by Vanguard Newspapers, said that he was not happy.
According to him, he was a little let down by the lawmakers for starting a probe into an allegation that was untrue and had no proof. He said it was a calculated move to embarrass the Board and possibly derail it from its main goal.
Remember that the House of Representatives recently took a vote to look into JAMB’s alleged practice of charging candidates for more than one exam. This was after a motion was made by Honourable Sergius Ogun (PDP-Edo).
Charges for printing JAMB results slips, admission letters, changing institutions and courses, and getting your registration number are among the things the House wants to find out about from the Board.
In his motion, Ogun said that section 88(1) and (2) of the Constitution allows the National Assembly to look into the activities of any authority that is enforcing or enforcing the law.
Also, he said that JAMB was set up to control the matriculation exams for candidates who wanted to go to universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education in Nigeria. But he said that in recent years, in addition to the registration fees for the exam, candidates for JAMB exams had to pay all kinds of processing and administrative fees.
Even though Oloyede was dismissing the accusations, he told the lawmakers to be more factual in their accusations, rather than spreading lies that could be seen as a way to stop the examination agency from doing its job.
He said, “as for the House’s resolution, I don’t want to talk about it. We think that the goal was to discourage us, but we won’t be discouraged. I think I should not talk about it until we are invited. It’s an allegation, but we thought that an allegation from the House should be something solid and based on facts.”
UTME JAMB Registrar says he is disappointed ?
So I’m a little surprised that someone would say something completely false just to make us look bad, but if that’s the goal, we won’t be stopped from doing what we’re doing. We expect Nigerians to know when their representatives are doing what is right and what is not right, and I can’t say more than that for now.
Meanwhile, the UTME mock exam is set to take place this Saturday across the country.
Oloyede said the Board has let the CBT centers raise their service fees a little bit because the price of diesel has gone up. This way, they can provide more reliable services.
According to the Registrar, the first amount that could be charged was N700. Because of the energy crisis, no center should charge candidates more than N1000.
“Yes, we have allowed the accredited CBT centers, and we have even said that anyone who can cut back can do so. We have asked the centers not to charge more than N700, but now we have seen the truth, and we said they could charge up to N1000.”

Unless you don’t want them to do the examination, we have looked at their costs and if we say they must put on their air conditioners, then the cost of a generator or diesel has to be taken into account. he said: “We’re not going to raise our prices.”
