The Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board -JAMB Prof. Ishaq Oloyede has said the Board had concluded investigations on the case of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination candidate, Mmesoma Ejikeme, who was accused of fraudulently inflating her 2023 UTME score.
Oloyede made this disclosure in a transcript sent to newsmen from Windhoek, Namibia. He said She was not the only one caught, noting that others have chosen not to go out.
According to the registrar, there is an industry faking results that unfortunately cannot penetrate the JAMB system because the system is fool proofed. He said that it is unfortunate that parents and some of the candidates that are being fooled are not aware that they are only being fooled.
Oloyede said that there is internal evidence to show that the change in Ejikeme’s scores was done with her collaboration. He said that there are certain features pertaining to her that only her knows unless she makes it available to somebody else, stressing that they could not have increased her scores on her behalf.
The Registrar said he had earlier spoken with a former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, on Nmesoma’s matter, and told her that it was a high-level scam.
