2023 UTME: Mmesoma confirms she forged JAMB result

The eight-member panel set up by Governor Charles Soludo of Anambra State to investigate the controversies surrounding the results claimed by a 

candidate in the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), Mmesoma Ejikeme, has submitted its report.

Headed by Nkemdili Nnonyelu, a professor, the committee confirmed Miss Mmesoma forged the score of 362 as earlier claimed by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board.
According to the report, a copy of which was obtained by PREMIUM TIMES, the candidate confirmed she single-handedly forged the result before approaching a cyber cafe for printing.
Christian Aburime, the chief press secretary to Governor Charles Soludo, confirmed the authenticity of the report to this newspaper.
Messoma has been in the news since the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) punctured her claim of  being the highest scorer in the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
JAMB had said she scored 249 in the examination as against the 362 which she claimed, but the candidate released a video where she stood her ground.
After their findings, the committee recommended that;
1. That Elikeme Joy Mmesoma tenders an unreserved written apology to the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (AMB), the School (Anglican Girls Secondary School, Uruagu Nnew) and the Anambra State Government. This should be done immediately.
2 Elikeme Joy Mmesoma should undergo a psychological counselling and therapy
3. All prospective candidates for JAMB Admission should adhere strictly to guidelines, processes and procedures of the examination body.
