- The special assistant to governor of Ekiti state on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, has blasted the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and President Muhammadu Buhari
- Olayinka said two years ago, before APC, came into power JAMB was working, INEC was functioning, but now things have taken a different turn
The special assistant to governor of Ekiti state on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, has blasted the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and President Muhammadu Buhari.
In a series of messages on his social media pages on Wednesday, April 12, Olayinka said: "Two years ago, before APC, JAMB was working, INEC was functioning, you could apply for a new passport and get it that same day.
But under a regime that promises change, you now have to wait for five months after capturing before getting your passports renewed, due to lack of passport booklets. Getting JAMB form now takes weeks.
May God never forgive those who foisted this calamity on us."
The special assistant also wondered why people believed the report of the Department of State Security (DSS) on the judges and PDP leaders, but find it difficult to believe the same DSS report on acting EFCC chairman, Ibrahim Magu.
In a previous report by NAIJ.com, Olayinka said he felt like giving the APC spokesperson Bolaji Abdullahi a slap.
Lamenting over a remark made by Abdullahi, the special assistant said he is afraid that an end has come for democracy in Nigeria.
NAIJ.com previously reported that candidates have been finding it hard to register for the 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and have been lamenting about the stress.
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) abolished the use of scratch card and introduced new procedures this year which candidates have described as very slow, cumbersome and very stressful.
JAMB registrar, Prof Is-haq Oloyede said about one million UTME candidates were registered as at Friday, April 7.
NAIJ.com TV crew went to the streets to speak with candidates on how they are managing with the difficulties surrounding registration for the UTME. Watch below:
