Anambra Govt Faults JAMB, Sets up Committee





The Anambra State government has expressed disagreement with the way the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) handled the situation regarding Mmesoma Ejikeme’s University and Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) result. JAMB had issued a press release denouncing the result as fake, but the state government stated that investigations are still ongoing to ascertain the truth behind the matter.

To thoroughly investigate the JAMB/Mmesoma issue, the state government has formed an eight-member committee of inquiry. The committee will be chaired by Prof. Nkemdili Nnonyelu and includes other members such as Prof. Mercy Okonkwo, Prof. Ngozi Chuma-Udeh, Prof. Maduabuchi Dukor, Prof. Jaja Nwanegbo, Rev. Sr. Prof. Mary-Felicia Opara, Rev. Cannon Dr. Uchenna Umeifekwem, and Mr. Chukwuemeka Fred Agbata, who serves as the Managing Director of Anambra Information Communication Technology Agency. The findings of this committee will be made public after the investigation is complete.

The statement read, “The Anambra State Government has, for obvious reasons, been following the JAMB/Mmesoma Ejike matter with keen interest.

“It is important to note that Miss Mmesoma Ejike went to the office of the Anambra State Commissioner for Education, Professor Ngozi Chuma-Udeh with her UTME result to protest that the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board didn’t recognise her as the candidate with the highest score.

“The Commissioner in turn called JAMB to confirm her claim, but she was told that Mmesoma’s result was forged.
