Mmesoma Ejikeme pleads for pardon as she testifies before House of Reps

Mmesoma Ejikeme, the 19-year-old candidate who was implicated in the UTME result falsification, has written to the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) requesting mercy.

Ejikeme made the request on Wednesday at an investigative session conducted by the House of Representatives’ ad hoc committee tasked with investigating the forgery charge leveled against her.

According to JAMB, Mmesoma forged a score of 362 rather than her genuine result of 249.

In one widespread video, she proudly displayed the result, which she said was obtained from  JAMB official site.

The Board, on the other hand, supplied proof that Mmesoma had sought her result using its computerized SMS service, which had consistently returned with the 249 score.

Mmesoma informed the lower chamber that she realized what she had done was inappropriate and that it was the reason she came to give her “Letter of Genuine Regret.”

I humbly beg your pardon for the error I made”I honestly confess that I got my JAMB scores from different website.” she added.

The applicant, who is currently having her results canceled and has been barred from taking the exam for three years,

Mmesoma informed legislators that she had accepted true repentance and that she would gladly accept the ad hoc committee’s proposal as she works to correct her error and grow to be a better person.

Prof Is-haq Oloyede, the JAMB Registrar, stated that Mmesoma falsified her results with the help of the centre where she took the exam, adding that the centre had been blacklisted for assisting and encouraging fraud.

According to him, eight institutions in Anambra State are currently being investigated in connection with Mmesoma’s case. He asserted that, contrary to popular belief, JAMB had no flaws.

Oloyede urged the people to be cautious about making unsubstantiated claims and to have faith in public institutions, while praising JAMB’s systems and procedures.

According to him, JAMB has implemented innovations that would help to eliminate human intervention in its operating operations, hence increasing public trust.

He claimed Mmesoma’s argument was “that of an amateur,” adding, “There was one deception by a candidate that nearly drove me insane.”
