The immediate past Registrar of the Joint Admission And Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Dibu Ojerinde, has stated that he left the Board better than he met it withing the nine years he was in charge.

He disclosed this during a dinner organised to honour him in Abuja.

According to him, his achievements could only be built upon by the new JAMB registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede.

He urged the management of the board to continue to work towards keeping the philosophy on which JAMB was established.

“I feel good that I am leaving JAMB better than we all met it that time. I am sure the person who has come to takeover is going to be as good if not better than I am.
