The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has disclosed that it remitted N5 billion to the Federal Government purse after the conduct of its 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

Dr Fabian Benjamin, JAMB’s Head of Media and Information, on Monday stated this in the board’s weekly bulletin.

Benjamin explained later in a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria that the Federal Government gave back N2 billion out of the N5 billion to the board to enhance its operations.

“The board returned N5 billion to the Federal Government, but out of that amount, the board was given N2 billion to further enhance its operations,” he said.
