The Registrar, Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, Ishaq Oloyede, says the board has concluded its investigations on the case of a student in Anambra State, Mmesoma Ejikeme, who was accused of fraudulently inflating her 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination result.
The JAMB Registrar made this disclosure in a transcript sent to newsmen from Windhoek, Namibia, on Tuesday.
He said, “The truth is that JAMB has concluded its investigation on Mmesoma’s score falsification matter; she was not the only one caught, just that others have chosen not to go out.
“Presently, there is an industry faking results, and unfortunately, they cannot penetrate the JAMB system. The reason is that the system is foolproof and we will prove it at any time.
“It is unfortunate that parents and some of the candidates who are being fooled are not aware that they have only been fooled.
“There is internal evidence to show that the change in Mmesoma’s scores was done with her collaboration. There are certain features pertaining to her that only she knows, and unless she makes them available to somebody else, they couldn’t have increased her scores on her behalf.”
The JAMB Registrar also disclosed that he earlier spoke with a former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, on Ejikeme’s matter and told her that it was a high-level scam.
