The embattled candidate of the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, in Anambra State, Mmesoma Ejikeme has admitted forging her UTME score herself, the Anambra committee tasked with investigating the controversy has said.Mmesoma, a student of Anglican Girls Secondary School in Nnewi, Anambra state, gained popularity after she claimed to have scored 362 in the 2023 UTME which was widely celebrated.

Ejikeme had been paraded as the top scorer of the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.

The student had claimed to have scored 362 but JAMB refuted her claim, stressing that she got 249.Her claims had generated divergent views and controversy across Nigeria.Speaking on the allegation in a video obtained by DAILY GIST, the student has said she printed her result from JAMB portal.

Ejikeme noted that she was not capable of forging her result.She said she had always been a brilliant pupil, who had secured first position from primary school days.But in a report submitted by the committee set up by the Anambra state governor, Charles Soludo to investigate the matter, Ejikeme has backtracked, saying she forged the result herself.

A report on the Anambra-constituted panel’s investigation has now concluded that Mmesoma indeed faked the results.

According to the panel, Mmesoma confessed that she manipulated the result with her phone. The panel of inquiry said Mmesoma is expected to tender a written apology to JAMB, the Anglican Girls Secondary, and the Anambra state government.

“The results paraded by Ejikeme Joy Mmesoma with an aggregate score of 362 are fake as buttressed by significant variations in the registration number, date of birth, centre name, and other infractions,” the panel’s report reads.“Ejikeme Joy Mmesoma admitted that she manipulated the fake results herself, using herself using her phone.

“The Principal Anglican Girls’ Secondary School, Mrs. Edu Uche, and the education secretary, Diocese of Nnewi (Anglican Communion) expressed dismay at the conduct of Ejikeme Joy Mmesoma.“Ejikeme Joy Mmesoma should undergo psychological counselling and therapy.
