He asserted that the campaign against NIN is mainly orchestrated by those benefiting from registration and examination scandals and added that the current campaign against NIMC, will not stop JAMB from collaborating with them.

Prof Oloyede equally called on the Computer Professional Registration Council of Nigeria (CPRCN), to help JAMB pay particular attention to CCTV as the board has observed that some computer-based test (CBT) centres are tampering with CCTV camera in collaboration with JAMB’s technical officers.
