The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has appointed the board’s director of information technology services, Fabian Okoro as the acting registrar.
Prof. Is-haq Oloyede has handed over the baton of leadership to the agency’s director of information technology services, Fabian Okoro.
Mr Okoro, who joined JAMB in 1993 as a programmer and was appointed a deputy director in 2018, is said to be the most senior director in the establishment.
The former registrar’s decision to hand over to Mr Okoro followed the directive by the ministry of education that all the concerned chief executives should hand over to the most senior directors in their agencies.
Mr Oloyede, who completed his five-year term of office at the weekend, has been praised by many for reportedly turning around the examination body, especially in the areas of financial discipline, accountability and war against examination malpractices.
Mr Oloyede, who was appointed as the registrar of JAMB on August 1, 2016, and inaugurated a day after, replaced a professor of measurement, Dibu Ojerinde, now embattled.
