According to James Faleke (APC, Lagos)  who proposed the motion, JAMB has become a profit making venture to the detriment of educational and social development of the country “he said”.

He reminded the members of the house that JAMB as a government agency is not set up for profit making but to promote educational development of the young citizens in pursuit of their professional careers.
