Mmesoma: Reps Orders JAMB To Stay Action, Set Up Committee

Listen to article

The House of Representatives has opted to intervene in the allegation of result forgery levelled by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) against Mmesoma Ejikeme who is a 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) candidate. 

The exam authority withdrew the candidate’s results and barred her for three years, raising concerns from the parliamentarians that this was an improper conduct on the part of the organisation in a case involving a minor.

They suggested that the girl might have been duped by an adult.

The House then established an ad hoc committee to look into the situation and requested that JAMB postpone any further action until the green chamber had finished its probe.

Earlier, in a video released by the young girl which has gone viral, Mmesoma narrated how she obtained the result from JAMB portal and was surprised when she heard stories of forged result.

‘I printed the result from JAMB portal,’ she said. ‘They now saying that I forged my result is what I don’t know. I am traumatised that they accused me of forging my own result. I am not capable of forging result.’

The Eastern Updates had on Sunday reported that JAMB had accused the candidate of ‘manipulating’ her result in this year’s examination.

‘Miss Ejikeme Joy Mmesoma had actually scored 249 and not 362 she claimed,’ the exam body insisted.

However, speaking on a Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme on Wednesday which was monitored by The Eastern Updates, Mmesoma pointed out she should not be blamed for the controversy.

‘It’s not my fault that I printed my result like that and they said that I forged my result. It’s not my fault. So, them banning it is not fair,’ she said.

Also, the 19-year-old’s father, Romanus, said the examination body is being unfair to his daughter, whom he said has been a precocious child since her primary school days.

The father of the Anambra-based student told Channels Television that he has no intention to seek redress but hand over everything to God.
