The Anambra State Government has strongly criticized the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) over their recent claim regarding the authenticity of Mmesoma Ejikeme’s result. The government has explicitly stated that it has no association with JAMB’s assertion that Mmesoma’s result, from Anglican Girls Secondary School (AGSS) in Nnewi, is fake.

Mr. Paul Nwosu, the Commissioner for Information, expressed that the investigation into the matter was still ongoing when JAMB issued a press release alleging the result’s falsity. In a statement released on Wednesday, Nwosu mentioned that the student and her school approached him, stating that she had obtained a score of 362. However, JAMB recognized another individual who scored 360 as the highest scorer.



Nwosu explained that the Commissioner for Education intervened in the situation, prompting the involvement of the Department of State Services (DSS) to conduct an investigation. However, before the investigation could be concluded, JAMB disclaimed Mmesoma’s result.

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

“It’s 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 (JAMB) 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.


“It was at this point that JAMB authorities invited the Directorate of State Services (DSS) to investigate the matter and make its findings known.

“This was yet to happen when JAMB went public with the matter, thus eliciting the raucous conversations we’ve seen in the media,”Nwosu said.
