Mmesoma Admitted To Falsifying UTME Result By Herself- Anambra Panel
The Committee of Inquiry set up by the Anambra State Government to thoroughly investigate the JAMB/Mmesoma’s matter has attested that 19-year-old Ejikeme Mmesoma forged her 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) result, validating JAMB’s position.
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) maintained that the result Mmesoma paraded was fake as she inflated her actual score of 249 to 362 despite Mmesoma’s statement that the result was real, which generated controversies.
It would be recalled that the State Government said it would not take sides in the matter but conduct an in-depth investigation.
The Committee in its report signed by the Anambra State Commissioner of Information, Paul Nwosu, said it conducted interviews with relevant parties, including Mmesoma, JAMB officials, the Principal of Anglican Girls’ Secondary School, and other individual(s) involved in the process.
During the investigation, JAMB revealed the different times that Mmesoma made several requests asking for her results and each time she received the same results indicating the candidate’s UTME Results to Wit: Eng: 64, Phy:54, Bio: 74, Che: 57 with a total aggregate score of 249.
The Board also highlighted that the notification of results template used by Mmesoma had been discarded since 2021.
According to the Committee, she eventually owned up in the presence of her principal and the Education Secretary that the narration by the JAMB officials was a true and correct description of what transpired.
“She also admitted to having given a manipulated result by herself unaided, using the same phone Airtel Number.
“According to her, she proceeded to the cybercafé (Prisca Global Computers, Uruagu, Nnewi), where she printed the results she had manipulated.”
Although the Committee tried to find out the motive behind her action, she said nothing.
She is expected to tender an unreserved written apology to JAMB, the Anglican Girls Secondary, and the Anambra State Government and undergo therapy.
