RESULT WAS FORGED: Anambra Panel Reveals Finding On Mmesoma’s UTME Result Manipulation Controversy


According to a report by POLITICS NIGERIA, a panel of inquiry commissioned by the Anambra State Government has confirmed that Mmesoma Ejikeme manipulated her Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) score. Mmesoma, a student at Anglican Girls Secondary School, Nnewi, had claimed to have achieved the highest score of 362, which was later found to be manipulated by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB).

The eight-member panel, appointed by Governor Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, conducted a thorough investigation into the controversy between JAMB and Mmesoma. Their findings, presented in an eight-page report, recommended several actions to rectify the situation.

The report revealed that Mmesoma had submitted a request to JAMB using a different registration number, falsely indicating an aggregate score of 362. However, the standard JAMB format confirmed her actual score to be 249. Mmesoma admitted to manipulating the results herself using her phone. The panel gathered further evidence through interviews with various parties involved, including Mmesoma, JAMB officials, and the principal of Anglican Girls Secondary School.

As a result, the panel recommended that Mmesoma issue a written apology to JAMB, her school (Anglican Girls’ Secondary School, Uruagu Nnewi), and the state government. It was also suggested that she undergo psychological counselling and therapy. The panel emphasized that Mmesoma was fully aware of her true score of 249.

The report, titled “Report of the Committee on Ejikeme Joy Mmesoma’s JAMB Score Controversy,” was made public by the Commissioner for Information, Sir Paul Nwosu. The panel expressed gratitude to JAMB for their cooperation during the investigation and expressed hope that the revelation of the truth would dispel misconceptions and correct the deception surrounding the case.
