The Federal Government recently sacked the Registrar, Joint Admission Matriculation Board, JAMB, Professor Dibu Ojerinde.
Sixteen other chief executive officers in the Ministry of Education, who were appointed during former President Goodluck Jonathan administration, were also sacked.
The Federal Government has given no reason for the action.
This was contained in a statement signed by the Deputy Director (Press), of the ministry, Mr. Benjamin Bem Goong, in Abuja announcing the sack.
According to the Vanguard, Ojerinde might have been sacked over the 2016 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations, UTME, irregularities from bordering on result multiplicity, centre relocation and system failure.
Ojerinde’s tenure as registrar of JAMB was supposed to end in April 2017.
