House Of Reps Berates JAMB For Action Against Mmesoma Ejikeme Over Allegation Of Result Forgery

The House of Representatives has waded into the allegation of result forgery levelled by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) against a 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) candidate, Mmesoma Ejikeme.

The lawmakers expressed concerns that the exam body acted in an unprofessional manner in a matter involving a minor by withdrawing the candidate’s result and banning her for three years.

They said the girl may have been manipulated by an adult.

The House subsequently set up an adhoc committee to investigate the matter and asked JAMB to stay action until the green chamber concludes its investigation.
