The Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Is-haq Oloyede (OFR), has said that he will always be proud of the University of Ilorin wherever he may be.

Prof. Oloyede stated this last Monday (May 8, 2017) while welcoming members of the University management team, led by the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. AbdulGaniyu Ambali (OON), and internal Council members who visited him in his office in Abuja.

He said, “In all the universities that I have visited across the world, there is no where I have seen great vision more genuinely practicalised than the University of Ilorin”

The JAMB Registrar, who is the immediate past Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ilorin, cited the institution's Blocks 1 to 10, which were among the first set of structures built on the main campus in the early 1980's, as a practical manifestation of great vision by the University's past leaders.

“You can walk from Block 1 to Block 10 during the raining season without a drop of rain touching you”, Prof. Oloyede said, noting that “this shows great vision and commitment of our past leaders.”

Pointing out that hard work is infectious at the University of Ilorin, as everybody shows total commitment to their duties, the JAMB boss expressed the belief that “every reasonable Nigerian should be proud of this University that is showing a good example of how an efficient public institution should be run”.

Prof. Oloyede recalled a time, during his tenure as Vice-Chancellor, when former President Olusegun Obasanjo visited the institution, saying, “the former President could not hide his impression about the uniqueness of the University”.

The former Vice-Chancellor explained that “Unilorin's uniqueness is not just about its physical infrastructural development, but also the commitment of its workforce”.

To the management of the University, Prof. Oloyede said, “Keep on doing the good things you are doing because you represent the model of how a world class University should be”.

Earlier in his remarks, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. AbdulGaniyu Ambali (OON), had told the JAMB Registrar that members of the University management team were in his office to formally felicitate with him over his appointment.

“We know your pedigree because you are one of us and we are very proud to export you to JAMB”, the Vice-Chancellor told Prof. Oloyede.
Pointing out that the University of Ilorin has been very lucky to have been blessed with a succession of committed chief executives since its inception, Prof. Ambali said, “We are not surprised that the Federal Government zoomed its lenses on the University to poach its former Vice-Chancellor to head JAMB”.

The Vice-Chancellor also remarked that the University has been the most patronized by Nigerian admission seekers since the last four years, as attested to by JAMB statistics, adding, “And we will continue to be the best”.

Prof. Ambali, however, said that the upsurge of admission applicants to the University came with some challenges such as extreme desperation by people indulging in all sorts of illegalities in the admission process.

The Vice-Chancellor said that Unilorin understands some of the current challenges facing JAMB in the run-up to this year's Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), adding, “But we know the man in charge is up to the task as he is a dogged fighter”. “You have our support and we will continue to pray for you”, he told Prof. Oloyede.
Prof. Ambali later presented a congratulatory letter to the JAMB helmsman.

With the Vice-Chancellor on the visit were the three Deputy Vice-Chancellors – Prof. N. Y. S. Ijaiya (Academic), Prof. A. Y. Abdulkareem (Management Services), and Prof. G. A. Olatunji (RTI).

Others were the Registrar, Mr. Emmanuel Dada Obafemi; the University Librarian, Dr. Joseph Omoniyi; the Deputy Bursar, Mr. Munir Dere; and the internal members of the University Governing Council – Prof. A. B. O. Omotoso, Prof. Kolade Joseph, Prof. Wahab Egbewole, Prof. S. O. Salami, Prof. AbdulRasheed Adeoye, Prof. Ahmad Abdussalam, and Prof. Alhassan Sani.

Also on the visit were the Deputy Registrar (Council Affairs), Dr. A. Adisa; the Head of Corporate Affairs, Mr. Kunle Akogun; the Principal Assistant Registrars in the office of the Vice-Chancellor, Mr. A. Sayuti, and Mr. K. K. Babamale; as well as the Protocol Officer to the Vice-Chancellor, Mr. Olatunde Agboola.
