House of Representatives has queried the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB for recruiting 300 staff from 2015 till date, without advertising.
The Chairman of the Adhoc committee investigating job racketeering in Federal Ministries, Department and Agencies of government (MDAs), Yussuf Gagdi issued the query when the Registrar of the board Prof Ishaq Oloyede appeared before the committee.
Mr Gagdi observed that by not advertising the vacancy, ordinary Nigerians have been robbed of the opportunity to get employment.
He argued that recruiting about 300 staff through waiver is against the federal character, adding that a waiver is to be granted only if an agency is collapsing.
Responding, the Registrar of JAMB Professor Ishaq Oloyede, said the board followed the federal character principles in the job recruitment exercise it conducted from 2015 till date.
