Oloyede however changed the narrative when he took over in 2016. Oloyede said he generated N9 billion for the board and remitted N 7.8 billion to the Federal Government in 2017. The JAMB registrar said this while delivering a lecture at a colloquium to mark the 61st birthday of Gov. Rauf Aregbesola on Sunday in Osogbo. .

He said Nigerians should join hands with President Muhammadu Buhari in the fight against corruption to bring about a better society. He said there is urgent need for government at all levels to improve the quality of education in the country. .

The colloquium had as theme: “Functional Education as a Tool For National Development and Gateway To Freedom.’’ Oloyede said that there was the need for government to place less emphasis on certificates and encourage abilities among the students.
