The father of the student accused of forging her JAMB result, Mr. Romanus Ejikeme, has come forward to address the situation surrounding his daughter.
Ejikeme Mmesoma, a student at the Anglican Girls Secondary School in Nnewi, Anambra State, has been accused of manipulating her result and falsely claiming to be the top scorer in the 2023 UTME.
In an interview with Leadership newspaper, Mmesoma’s father refuted the allegations of his daughter falsifying her result and accused the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) of attempting to divert the N3 million scholarship she received from Innocent Chukwuma, the chairman of Innoson Motors.
Mr. Ejikeme emphasized that his daughter has consistently displayed exceptional academic abilities and always ranked first in her class. He firmly believes that she is incapable of manipulating her result. He shared their family background, stating that they are from Oduma in Aninri local government in Enugu State but currently reside in Uruagu, Nnewi.
He explained that when Mmesoma transferred from Oba Girls’ Secondary School to Anglican Girls’ Secondary School, her previous teachers from Oba Girls pleaded with him to keep her in their school as she had brought recognition to their institution through her participation in competitions. He also mentioned that her friends were the ones who initially saw her score on the Internet and informed her before she printed it out.
Expressing his concern for his daughter’s emotional well-being, Mr. Ejikeme revealed that Mmesoma has been feeling extremely sad and shedding tears since her visit to the commissioner of education and subsequent transfer to the Department of State Services (DSS) office.
He firmly stood by his daughter, dismissing the accusations against her and asserting that the claims were an attempt to transfer her scholarship to someone else. He stated that they possess the printed copy of Mmesoma’s UTME score as evidence.
