Update: Oloyede Breaks Silence On Mmesoma’s UTME Result Falsification Saga



Professor Ishaq Oloyede, the Registrar of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Tuesday said that the Board had concluded the investigations on the case of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) candidate, Mmesoma Ejikeme, who was accused of fraudulently inflating her 2023 UTME score.

The Registrar made this known via in a transcript sent to our newsmen from Windhoek, Namibia.

According to Oloyede, “The truth is that JAMB has concluded the investigation on Nmesoma’s score falsification matter. She was not the only one caught, just that others have chosen not to go out”.

“Presently, there are an industry faking results and unfortunately they cannot penetrate the JAMB system, the reasons being that (our) system is foolproofed and we will prove it any time. It is unfortunate that parents and some of the candidates that are being fooled are not aware that they are only being fooled.

“There is internal evidence to show that the change in Ejikeme’s scores was done with her collaboration. There are certain features pertaining to her that only she knows unless she makes it available to somebody else. They couldn’t have increased her scores on her behalf.”

The Registrar said he had earlier spoken to Oby Ezekwesili, the former Minister of Education, on Nmesoma’s matter, and told her that it was a high-level scam.

“We improved our facilities this year, so Ejikeme and her collaborators are still living in the past. I spoke with Mrs Ezekwesili on the matter and I told her that it is a high-level scam and I told her that it was a careless forgery.

“This is because we are no longer using some of the things they used in changing those results since 2021. We used that pattern in 2021 and you saw what happened and many of such individuals were caught as well and they were treated accordingly,” he added.
