Speaking on the issue of corruption in public office, Shettima noted that JAMB had never made up to $1m for the Federal Government before Oloyede assumed office.

Shettima said, “One person I always respect is Ishaq Oloyede. Over the years, JAMB never made up to $1m for the Federal Government. However, when Prof Oloyede assumed office, JAMB made over N50bn for the Federal Government in one year.”

Former President Muhammad Buhari appointed Oloyede the registrar/CEO of JAMB in 2016.
