UTME Results: Embattled Anambra Schoolgirl, Mmesoma Writes Apology Letter To JAMB
Mmesoma Ejikeme, embattled Anambra State schoolgirl, has formally apologised to the Joint Admission and Matriculations Board (JAMB) over her manipulation of the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) from 249 to 362 total aggregate score in the examination.
The 19-year-old 2023 UTME candidate made a formal apology to the examination body for her action in an apology letter she read before an investigative hearing by the House of Representatives Ad hoc Committee to probe the matter.
During the hearing of the Reps Ad-hoc committee headed by Sada Soli, Mmesoma pleaded for leniency as she promised such would not happen again.
She claimed that she had never been involved in examination malpractice all her life.
Present at the hearing is the JAMB Registrar, Prof Is-haq Oloyede.
Naija News House had reported that JAMB said there was internal evidence to show that the change in Mmesoma Ejikeme’s scores in 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) was done with her collaboration.
Naija News House had reported that the Mmesoma Ejikeme, a student of the Girls Anglican Secondary School, Nnewi, Anambra state had been accused of fraudulently inflating her UTME results from 249 she scored to 362.
The JAMB management, which later disclaimed her results as fake, had barred Mmesoma for three years from sitting for the UTME.
Naija News House also reported that a Committee of Inquiry set up by the Government of Anambra State to thoroughly investigate the controversy around the said UTME results of Ejikeme Mmesoma indicted her in its finding which was submitted to the state government.
In the committee report, the panel wrote that “Ejikeme Joy Mmesoma admitted that she manipulated the fake results herself, using her phone.”
The committee also recommended that the schoolgirl tenders apology to the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).
