He noted that the obvious increase in the amount amount being remitted by JAMB from less than N60m in 2010 – 2016 to 15 Billion in 2017 – 2018 is an indication that the fees being charged could be reduced.

The minister, in his announcement stated that the president directed the Ministry to look into the reduction following the significant improvement in revenues being remitted to the Treasury by the Education Agencies.
