The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has raised alarm over what it described as “well-orchestrated smear campaign against the board and its management.
The Board urged the ICPC to investigate the malicious allegations and make its findings public.
A statement by JAMB’s spokesperson Dr. Fabian Benjamin said the sinister campaign is being sponsored by some disgruntled individuals whose unwholesome interests are being affected by the spate of current reforms in JAMB which have successfully blocked their sources of illicit wealth.
“To achieve their nefarious agenda, an unstable shadowy character is being used to launch calculated and vicious attacks against the Board,” he said.
He noted that they have concocted some false and totally baseless allegations for which they have contracted an unregistered and faceless NGO to be circulating to various agencies, especially the ICPC, media outlets and bloggers across the country.
While advising the media and the public to beware of the shenanigans of the merchants of falsehoods, he said they are hell-bent on tarnishing the hard-earned and positive image of the Board and its leadership.
He however said the management of the Board will continue to manage the affairs of the organisation with utmost transparency and in line with international best practices regardless of the array of dark and powerful forces working round the clock to pull it down.
