Mmesoma’s revelation was also said to be in the presence of her principal, and the Anambra State Education Secretary.

To this end,the panel tied up its report and submitted to the Anambra State Government, indicting the 19-year old schoolgirl.

The Head of Public Affairs and Protocol of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, Fabian Benjamin,who released the report to newsmen on Saturday,said  Mmesoma also admitted 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 Airtel Number.According to her, she proceeded to the cybercafé (Prisca Global Computers, Uruagu, Nnewi) where she printed the results she had manipulated,”Benjamin said.

In the report,the panel said Mmesoma did not give any reason for the forgery.

He said:“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 Airtel 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.”

Recall that JAMB had earlier 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.

In spite of withdrawal of his original result and subsequent three-year ban slam on her from writing the UTME over her dubious action, Mmesoma had insisted her result was not forged and noted that she printed her result from JAMB portal.
