The Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, (JAMB), Prof Ishaq Oloyede, has called for the review of relevant civil service laws to address the lacuna bordering on the death of a worker on the eve of retirement.

Oloyede made the call in Bwari, Abuja at a ceremony held in honour of 24 staff of the board who have attained the compulsory retirement age of 35 years of service.

The JAMB boss described the retirement ceremony as a joyous event as the staff were retiring without blemish when there were some who started with them but were not there to finish.

He urged the retirees to be thankful to God for meritorious services to the country and the grace to peacefully retire.

He disclosed that six directors were among the retirees adding that Dr Yusuf Lawal, who was the former Director of Test Administration at JAMB, had transferred his services to the University of Abuja.

Earlier, the Director of Human Resources, Mr Mohammed Shehu, while congratulating the retirees, appreciated them for their contribution towards the growth of JAMB.

The retiring directors are Dr Halilu Bakori Mohammed, Raphael Ofala Oise, Isyaku Muhammad Kankiya, Babatunde Benjamin Bamisaye, Dupe Ayoson, Sunday Adeleke Aladegbaye and Akinyele Oyetunde Ariyo.
