The Presidency has reacted to reports that a snake swallowed N36 million belonging to the Joint Admissions and Matriculations board.
Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Digital and New Media, Tolu Ogunlesi, revealed that the ludicrous story came about because of audits being carried out on the body.
He wrote on his verified Twitter account: “A sales clerk, Philomina Chieshe, told JAMB registrar and team that she could not account for N36m she made in previous years… Philomena confessed that it was her housemaid that connived with JAMB staff to “spiritually” steal the money from the vault in the accounts office.
“In 2017, under new management appointed in 2016, it remitted N7.8 Billion. Now that new management is carrying out audits at State offices, and stories that touch are emerging.”
