The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said it’s attention has been drawn to a well-orchestrated smear campaign against the Board and its management.
The Head, Public Affairs and Protocol
JAMB, Fabian Benjamin, disclosed this in a statement issued on Thursday, August 4, 2022.
Benjamin stated that the sinister campaign was being sponsored by some disgruntled individuals whose unwholesome interests were being affected by the spate of current reforms in JAMB which have successfully blocked their sources of illicit wealth.
The JAMB spokesperson further revealed that, “to achieve their nefarious agenda, an unstable shadowy character is being used to launch calculated and vicious attacks against the Board.
“Already, they have concocted some false and totally baseless allegations for which they have contracted an unregistered and faceless NGO to be circulating to various agencies, especially the ICPC, media outlets and bloggers across the country.
“While we urge the ICPC to investigate the malicious allegations and make its findings public, we also advise the media and members of the public to beware of the shenanigans of these merchants of falsehoods who are hell-bent on tarnishing the hard-earned and positive image of the Board and its leadership”, he said.
Furthermore, he assured that the management of the Board would continue to manage the affairs of the organisation with utmost transparency and in line with international best practices regardless of the array of dark and powerful forces working round the clock to pull it down.
He however did not disclose the details of the alleged accusations.
