Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, the Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), in his reaction to a petition sent against him to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), said that he had never received any bribe from anyone before.
“I am extremely selective in accepting gifts from even personal friends. My needs are limited and my legitimate income is sufficient to spend on my volunteer work,” he said.
ASUU had in a petition accused Oloyede who was the former Vice Chancellor of the University of Ilorin between 2008 to 2012 and Abdulganiy Ambali, the current Vice Chancellor of the same university of about N2billion fraud.
The allegations also included; pension fraud, extortion from students, contract inflation and kick backs and other unlawful payments to themselves and to ex-principal officers of the University of Kwara.
Prof. Oloyede however noted that he had never taken bribe before from anyone, extorted students, accepted gifts from contractors or even inflated contracts.
“I have never in my life collected bribe, inflated contracts, extorted anyone nor accepted gifts beyond “Thank You greeting cards” from any contractor, dead or alive.” He added.
