This was disclosed by the JAMB’s head of media, Dr Fabian Benjamin.

He disclosed this while advising candidates applying for direct entry against multiple registration.

According to him, “The Board is not interested in the candidates’ money as is being insinuated by certain group who suggested to the Board that such registration will enhance the revenue base of the Board.

“No, we are more interested in the credibility of the examination and not the money, if money is our concern we will not be returning over five billion naira to the Federal Government coffers.’’

He said that the money was saved through the transparent and judicious use of resources.
