Score controversy: JAMB bars Ms Ejikeme on 3-year suspension - ITREALMS
JAMB had on Tuesday, revealed that it stopped using the print-out currently being paraded by the student, Ms Ejikeme as her authentic result in 2021.

This comes after Ejikeme Mmesoma, whose UTME result JAMB disowned, broke her silence, saying the board lied.

Mmesoma had claimed she got the highest score of 362 in the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), but JAMB said she was parading a fake result and that she scored 249.

JAMB said it was constrained to set the records straight and wished to state unequivocally that many of the results which many of these candidates were parading were fake.

Also, The Punch reported on Tuesday by the Board’s spokesman, Fabian Benjamin, JAMB insisted that only Mmesoma paraded the “obsolete” notification slip out of all the candidates that sat the 2023 UTME.

Part of the statement read: “Consequently, the Board would like to reassure Nigerians that its system was neither tampered with nor compromised as the candidate simply falsified a copy of a result slip of a candidate named “Asimiyu Mariam Omobolanle,” who sat the UTME in 2021 and scored 138.

“It is also instructive to note that the candidate, in her statement, has inadvertently revealed the rightful owner of the result she is parading when she pointed out that the QR code on the result slip showed the actual owner of the said result before she peddled a lie in an attempt to obfuscate the truth.

“To witness the unassailable position of the Board regarding this obvious falsehood, the general public is, therefore, urged to endeavour to scan the QR code on the result slip to see its actual owner before it was mutilated. It is to be noted that the QR code encapsulates the UTME result of each candidate, hence, what is on the result sheet is nothing other than the interpretation of the information on this QR code.

“Furthermore, the public is also to note that the Board stopped issuing Notification of Result slips after the 2021 UTME for the simple reason that candidates were falsifying them. Consequently, the Board has been issuing actual UTME RESULT Slips (not notification of results ) since 2022 complete with the photograph of each candidate.

“Similarly, the public is also invited to ponder on the fact that out of all the candidates that sat the 2023 UTME, only Ms. Ejikeme Mmesoma parades the obsolete ‘Notification of Result.

“In the meantime, the management of the Board, after considering the weighty infraction committed by Ms. Ejikeme Joy Mmesoma, and in line with its established procedures, has withdrawn her 2023 UTME result and also barred her from sitting the Board’s examination for the next three years.”
