The Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Examination (JAMB), Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, has stated that Mmesoma Ejikeme, the controversial Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) is either being duped or part of a syndicate involved in the result forgery.
JAMB had accused Mmesoma of parading a fake result with 362 as her total score in the 2023 UTME against the 249 recorded by the board.
Oloyede, in an interview on Tuesday, maintained that the candidate’s result is “completely fake” adding that she also lied about printing her result from JAMB’s site.
“If you scan the code, the candidate’s result will show. So I can say emphatically that the girl is parading a fake result.
“It is either she is being duped, or she is part of a syndicate manufacturing purported JAMB results.
“There are security features on our results, so I can emphasise that the girl is just trying to deceive the public.
“Her result is completely fake. Her claim that she printed the result from our site is a lie, and totally incorrect.
“If we should reveal all that we know, people will be shocked. So if people are looking for shortcuts to achieve an end, that is what would happen,” the JAMB Registrar said.
Oloyede argued that the board’s system was not hacked into and the issue had nothing to do with JAMB.
He added that the board track everything printed from its system.
“The result she is holding is completely fake because we are able to track everything printed from our system”, it said.
Mmesoma Ejikeme has denied the accusations pressed against her by JAMB, maintaining that she printed her result with 362 as her total score.
