Chairman, House of Representatives Ad-hoc Committee investigating job racketeering in federal agencies, Hon. Yusuf Adamu Gagdi has disclosed that the Committee has not indicted the Registrar of the Joint Admission and Matriculations Board (JAMB), Professor Ishaq Oloyode, or any agency.
Hon. Gagdi in a statement obtained by Sunday Tribune, however, said it was wrong to insinuate that the Committee has indicted the JAMB Registrar when it was still carrying out its assignment.
He observed that there have been reports in the media that the committee indicted the JAMB Registrar for employing about 300 staff without advertisement.
Speaking at resumed hearing of the Ad-hoc Committee, Hon. Gagdi said the committee has been having a robust engagement with all agencies appearing before it.
He said until the committee concludes its assignment and submits a report to the House, it cannot be said that it has indicted any agency for any wrongdoing.
Hon. Gagdi said: “I want to say it here that as a matter of fact, we did not take any report of indictment against anybody.
“This committee has not indicted the Registrar of JAMB and we have not indicted any Institution.
“You can only say that after we submit our report. There are reports going out that we have indicted JAMB Registrar. No, we have not submitted any report anywhere and so, don’t quote us out of context, please.
“We had a very good interaction with him and nobody should preempt the decision of this committee to say that somebody is faulty,” Hon. Gagdi urged.
