The Governor of Anambra State, Chukwuma Soludo has ordered that Mmesomma Joy Ejikeme, the viral female student who falsified her Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) be handed over to the State Guidance Counselor and Professor of Clinical Psychology.
Soludo gave this directive in a letter to the Principal of Anglican Girls Secondary School Nnewi where Mmesoma is a student which was sighted by The Eastern Updates.
The governor further directed the immediate commencement of psychological counseling and therapy session for Mmesomma, who on Thursday the 6th of July 2023 admitted she manipulated the fake results she had been parading.
In the letter which was signed by the Commissioner for Education, Prof. Ngozi Chuma-Udeh, the governor said the directive followed one of the recommendations of the panel constituted to investigate the matter.

‘The directive is in line with one of the recommendations of the Committee set up by Anambra State Government to investigate the matter, following the parading of the fake results which elicited interests and generated controversy and misgivings the general public,’ the statement added.
Recall that Mmesoma has finally admitted to a panel of independent investigators set up by the Anambra State Government that she forged her 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination results.
The panel noted that Mmesoma did not provide any justification for the fabrication in the report that was made accessible to journalists in Abuja by the spokesperson for the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, Dr. Fabian Benjamin.
‘In Ejikeme Joy Mmesoma’s submission, she 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 have given a manipulated result by herself unaided, using the same phone Artel Number.
‘According to her, she proceeded to the cybercafé (Prisca Global Computers, Uruagu, Nnewi) where she printed the results she had manipulated. The Committee tried to find out the motive behind her action, but Ejikeme Joy Mmesoma said NOTHING.
‘In their own submissions, the Principal Anglican Girls’Secondary school, Uruagu Nnewi, and the Education Secretary – Diocese of Nnewi (Anglican Communion) expressed shock at what transpired where in their presence, Mmesoma admitted having manipulated her UTME results, deceiving the school, her immediate family and the State Government.’
The Eastern Updates reports that JAMB had on Sunday accused Mmesoma of manually inflating her UTME result from 249 to 362. The candidate had since paraded herself as the 2023 UTME top scorer and had attracted a scholarship of N3M from Innoson Motors.
