Mmesoma Ejikeme Engages in a Careless Forgery, Says JAMB Registrar

Professor Ishaq Oloyede

Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, stated on Tuesday that the Board has completed its investigations into the issue of Mmesoma Ejikeme, a candidate for the 2023 UTME who was suspected of inflating her score fraudulently.

In a transcript from Windhoek, Namibia, that was supplied to Punch, Oloyede made this admission.

”’The truth is that JAMB has wrapped up its inquiry into Nmesoma’s score-falsification situation, adding that even if others had chosen not to go, she wasn’t the only one who had been discovered,” Oloyede said.

He said: “Presently, there is an industry faking results and unfortunately it 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 with a former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, 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 stated.
