JAMB defends remittance of operating surplus, gives reasons
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Monday, November 8, defended the remittance of its operating surplus to the federal government accounts.
The board said it will continue to remit its excesses in line with global best practices to the federal government.
Guardian reports that the board in a statement signed by its head of public affairs, Fabian Benjamin, said its action to remit proportion of its operational surplus is also line with the extant government’s directive on the remittances.
