Jamb Bars Mmesoma Ejikeme for 3 years for UTME Result Falsification


The Join Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB has officially ban Miss Ejikeme Joy Mmesoma of Anambra state for falsifying her 2023 UTME result and gaining access to N3 million scholarship.

Recall that the candidate, Miss Ejikeme Joy Mmesoma of Anambra was awarded N3 million scholarship as the highest scorer in the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

Amid the controversy trailing the UTME result obtained by Ejikeme Mmesoma, JAMB has insisted that her result is “patently fake”.
Consequentially, the body has withdrawn her result and barred her from writing the examination for the next three years. 

The examination body also reassured Nigerians that its “system was neither tampered with nor compromised as the candidate simply falsified a copy of a result slip of a candidate named “Asimiyu Mariam Omobolanle”, who sat the UTME in 2021 and scored 138.”

JAMB official statement on the issue indicted Mmesoma as not the official top scorer, that investigations reveals that she falsify the 362 score, which she used to access scholarship from Innocent Vehicles.

We are urging JAMB to make the system of admission processes in Nigeria to be fraud free without external interference as noticed in the case of Mmesoma's result falsification.

Many Nigerians see the whole scenario as mere distraction, that Jamb should not be fighting with candidates' over top scorers, while the country is facing serious economic challenges.
