A student from Anambra state, Mmesoma Ejikeme who was celebrated as having the highest score in the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) has disclosed that she’s traumatized following the allegations levelled against her on forged results.
Goldennewsng reported that JAMB on Sunday declared the results of Mmesoma who claimed to have scored 362 in the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) as fake.
JAMB in a statement disclosed that her real score is 249 but she used software to manually manipulate her results.
Speaking about the development, Mmesoma in a video shared on Facebook noted that she had printed the result from Jamb portal and her aggregates read 362 and never manipulated.
She further noted that the accusation had traumatized her as she is not capable of performing such as act.
Speaking on the development, Hon Augustine Onyekachukwu Ike KSJI, Representing Nnewi North Constituency, Anambra State House of Assembly in a statement released on Monday, July 3rd, condemned the examination body for blaming the young student.
The statement reads: “I STRONGLY CONDEMN JAMB REGISTRAR; PROF. ISHAQ OLOYEDE FOR BLAMING THE VIBRANT EJIKEME JOY MMESOMA OVER VARIATIONS IN JAMB SCORES Jamb.ng
“1. My attention was drawn to the media trial of my constituent; Ejikeme, Joy Mmeso championed by Jamb Registrar PROF. OLOYEDE, whom accused her directly of faking result to win scholarship.
“2. On this day Monday, 3rd July, I decided to visit her school and was further directed to her house. After listening to this intelligent young chap, I wept over the psychological trauma the incompetence of our system is about to push the young girl into,
“3. Evidences before me showed that the young MMESOMA has been consistent in leading her class from Nursery school till date.
“4. It’s more embarrassing that even under investigation her QR code keeps producing varying scores and names. Thus, this brings to question even the official result announced by Jamb following the obvious irregularities. Presently, I tried using the short code with her number to access her result for an hour, the effort proved abortive.
“5. While it’s very unlikely that the people announced by JAMB REGISTRAR can do better than Ejikeme, Joy Mmesoma, if placed under the same examination condition, I strongly insist that the Jamb Registrar retracts his damaging press conference on my constituent pending conclusion of the investigation by the Police.”
