Mr. Romanus Ejikeme, the father of Mmesoma, who was accused of forging her 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination result, has stated that the family has no intention of suing the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) regarding the incident. Ejikeme, speaking to journalists at his residence in Nnewi, Anambra State, expressed his belief that everything would be left to God to judge.
Ejikeme vehemently denied the allegations against his daughter, asserting that she did not forge her results. He described Mmesoma as a diligent and hardworking student who was committed to her studies. He highlighted her determination to pursue a career in Medicine and Surgery, noting that she would even insist on studying late into the night.
Expressing his disappointment, Ejikeme lamented that after all the effort his daughter had put into preparing for the exams, she was being denied her rightful score. He maintained his confidence in her innocence and expressed the family’s willingness to go to any lengths to prove it. He also emphasized the need for a thorough and diligent investigation into the matter.
The JAMB result in question, with a score of 362, which Mmesoma had been parading as the highest score, has been dismissed by JAMB as fake. According to the board, the student forged her result, withdrew her original result, and has been banned from taking the exams for three years. The family, however, is determined to seek justice and clear their daughter’s name.
Despite the emotional toll on Mmesoma and her mother, the Ejikeme family hopes that a comprehensive investigation will shed light on the truth of the matter. They firmly believe in their daughter’s integrity and await a resolution that will restore her reputation and vindicate her hard work and dedication to her studies.
