The Bulletin also noted the JAMB registrar had brought numerous innovations to the operations of JAMB within three years of his appointment as the board’s registrar.
It stated, “His diverse innovations, transparency and the deployment of ICT in the fight against corruption and other unwholesome acts have given fresh impetus to the fight against financial, administrative and examination malfeasance in the country.
“His full disclosure of income and expenditure weekly in the board’s bulletin has not gone unnoticed by anti-corruption crusaders.”
