He said the N5.2 billion earlier sent to the treasury was not the total money the Board actually transferred to the government.
He disclosed this during a meeting with Executives of Colleges of Education Academic Staff Union (COESU) in his office in Bwari, Abuja.
Prof. Oloyede said more monies generated from the sale of 2017 admission documents were transferred, adding that the Board had so far remitted N7.8 billion to the treasury.
He told the colleges of education executives that applicants were allowed to choose colleges of education as first choice institutions in the admission forms but most of them preferred to choose universities because the five credits requirement for admission into higher institutions was uniform.
Earlier the COESU National President, Nuhu Ogirima, had said the transfer of over N5 billion to the “nation’s coffers would remain quite indelible.”
