At the moment, it is not certain how much the board will be remmiting to the coffers of the Federal Government. But According to the source, it will be close to last years figure which was N7.8 billion.

The source also disclosed that since the arrival of Is-haq Oloyede, a professor, as registrar, JAMB had ceased to request funding from the federal government for its capital and recurrent expenditures.

When contacted Prof. Oleyede confirmed this but refused to make further comments on it

Dr Fabian Benjamin also confirmed the information. He however stated that since JAMB direct entry registration and JAMB Change of Course and institution are still on and with that, the revenue is likely going to be more that it is at the moment
