The Anambra State Government has constituted a panel of inquiry to investigate the result of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) which candidate Ejikeme Joy Mmesoma displayed, creating controversies across the country.
A statement today, July 4, by the state education ministry’s spokesperson, Nnaemeka Egwuonwu, for the Commissioner for Education, Ngozi Chuma-Udeh, the government described the development as embarrassing, “especially as it comes at a time when Governor Charles Soludo is repositioning the sector.”
The government also celebrated Nkechinyere Umeh, who was declared the top scorer by JAMB. According to JAMB, Miss Nkechineyere scored 360 points on the UTME tests.
“The Anambra State Government has continued to celebrate Nkechinyere Umeh, who was declared the highest by JAMB, having scored a cumulative mark of 360, while security agents are investigating the allegation of falsification of result levelled against Ejikeme Mmesoma, who had earlier been showcased in the social media as having scored the highest.”
