Job Racketeering: JAMB registrar not indicted in probe – Reps c’ttee



Job Racketeering: House of Reps queries JAMB

Yusuf Gagdi, Chairman of the House of Representatives Ad Hoc Committee probing job racketeering in MDAs, has stated that the Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, has not been indicted.

He further stated that, contrary to popular belief, no federal government agency has been indicted.

He stated this on Saturday at the committee’s resumed hearing in Abuja.

Gagdi stated that the committee had a thorough engagement with all agencies presenting before it.

He said it was incorrect to imply that the committee had accused the JAMB registrar when it was still carrying out its mandate.


According to sources, the committee convicted the JAMB registrar for hiring over 300 people without advertising.

He stated that the committee could not be deemed to have indicted any agency for malfeasance until it completed its task and issued a report to the House.

“This committee has not indicted the JAMB registrar, nor have we indicted any institution.” You can only say that once we have turned in our report.

“We had a very good interaction with him, and nobody should preempt this committee’s decision by saying that someone is faulty.”
