It was a rare sight to behold on Tuesday when the newly reappointed registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board(JAMB), Is-haq Oloyede, was welcomed back to the examination body’s headquarters in Bwari, at the Federal Capital Territory, by excited staff and management of the agency.
Oloyede was returning to the office since Jul 30, 2021, when he handed over the baton of the leadership of the examination body to the director of information technology services, Fabian Okoro, at the expiration of his first five-year-tenure.
The workers of the examination body in their hundreds trooped out singing and drumming to welcome Oloyede back to the office.
The registrar was reappointed on Friday by President Muhammadu Buhari following his recommendation by the education minister, Adamu Adamu.
Welcoming the registrar on Tuesday, the head of the agency’s public affairs and protocol, Fabian Benjamin, described Oloyede as Godsent. He thanked him on behalf of his colleagues for the innovations introduced to the body and the welfare packages for the workers.
Other management members and other workers also took turns to shower praises on the professor, and commended President Buhari for what they described as putting a round peg in a round hole.
