IT is no longer news that the Federal Government sacked the Registrar, Joint Admission Matriculation Board, JAMB, Professor Dibu Ojerinde and 16 other chief executive officers in Ministry of Education that were appointed during former President Goodluck Jonathan administration .
In the statement signed by the Deputy Director (Press), of the ministry, Mr. Benjamin Bem Goong, in Abuja announcing the sack, the government gave no reason for the action.
We can however volunteer that Dibu Ojerinde had it coming based on happenings within the organization he headed in the last couple of months which has put the education of many tertiary education seekers in jeopardy.
Ojerinde whose tenure was suppose to end April 2017, might have been sacked over the 2016 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations, UTME, irregularities from bordering on result multiplicity, centre relocation and system failure.
Many people protested that the irregularities of the exercise underscored their their gaining admission this year, that the board was unprepared for the CBT it adopted three years ago.
