The Registrar, Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, Prof Is-haq Oloyede, has chided Nigerian politicians who he said preferred to spend as much as N100million to buy nomination forms of their political parties to equipping health institutions with such money.
Oloyede spoke during the presentation of medical equipment to the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital in Ilorin. The presentation was part of JAMB’s ongoing presentation of medical equipment to 12 tertiary health institutions selected from the six zones in the country.
The items, which JAMB secured from the Project Cure of the United States of America, are being presented to the institutions under Tertiary Health Institutions Hospital Equipment Intervention Programme.
Explaining the motive behind the donation of the medical equipment to the tertiary health institutions, the JAMB registrar said that the intervention of the board in the area of health care delivery is to support the government’s efforts aimed at addressing the huge medical infrastructural gap.
