JAMB withdraws result of Anambra student who secured a N3million scholarship after faking her result


The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced the withdrawal of Miss Ejikeme Joy Mmesoma's Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) result due to her presentation of a fabricated score. 

In an official statement released by JAMB's Head of Public Affairs and Protocol, Fabian Benjamin, it was revealed that Mmesoma had claimed a score of 362, whereas her actual score was 249. 

JAMB has stated its intention to take legal action against Mmesoma for tampering with their results. Notably, Mmesoma had been granted a N3 million scholarship by Innocent Chukwuma, the founder of Innoson Motors, based on her purported UTME score of 362 in the 2023 examination.

"The attention of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board(JAMB) has been drawn to several publications in both print and online media celebrating certain candidates for being high scorers in the 2023 UTME.

"The Board is constrained to set the records straight and wishes to state unequivocally that many of the results which many of these candidates are parading are fake. 

"In many instances, some of these candidates had actually obtained far lower scores than they are claiming and had used some funny software packages to manipulate their results to deceive unsuspecting members of the public.

"The most pathetic of them all is the case of Miss Ejikeme Joy Mmesoma, who claimed to have scored 362 in the 2023 UTME and was awarded a N3m scholarship by Chief (Dr.) Innocent Chukwuma.

"She was even set to be honoured by the Anambra State Government when one of its top officials put a call through to JAMB to confirm her claim only for the Board to reveal that Miss Ejikeme Joy Mmesoma had actually scored 249 and not 362 she claimed. She had manipulated her UTME result to deceive the public to fraudulently obtain scholarship and other recognition."
