“I Condemn JAMB Registrar Prof Ishaq For Blaming Ejikeme Mmesoma Over Variations in JAMB Scores.”
The member representing Nnewi North Constituency, Anambra State House of Assembly Hon. Augustine Onyekachukwu Ike KSJI, has strongly condemned the decision of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), led by Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, to blame Ejikeme Mmesoma for the variations in her JAMB scores.
Hon. Onyekachukwu emphasized that Mmesoma has consistently been a top performer in her class since her nursery school days. During his investigation into the matter, it was discovered that her QR codes consistently produced varying scores, indicating irregularities within the JAMB system.
It is important to recall that Ejikeme Mmesoma was accused of manipulating her JAMB result in order to secure a scholarship and public favor. However, on Sunday, July 2, Fabian Benjamin, the spokesperson for JAMB, made a statement claiming that the student, who was widely celebrated for scoring the highest mark of 362 in the just-concluded examination, had actually scored 249 in the UTME.
As a consequence, the examination board announced the withdrawal of her result and declared that Mmesoma would face legal repercussions.

Hon. Onyekachukwu, in a press statement, insisted that the JAMB Registrar retracts his damaging press conference until the investigation on the matter is completed. The lawmaker emphasized that it is crucial to maintain the integrity of the examination process and ensure that the truth is uncovered before making public statements that could harm the reputation of a student.
The member representing Nnewi North Constituency called on JAMB to conduct a thorough investigation into the matter, including an audit of the examination system, to determine the cause of the irregularities in Mmesoma’s scores.
Hon. Onyekachukwu Ike further expressed his support for Ejikeme Mmesoma, highlighting her consistent academic excellence and calling for a fair and unbiased resolution to the controversy surrounding her JAMB scores.
Here is the full press statement:
Press statement by Hon. Augustine Onyekachukwu Ike KSJI, Member Representing Nnewi North Constituency, Anambra State House of Assembly.
I STRONGLY CONDEMN JAMB REGISTRAR; PROF. ISHAQ OLOYEDE FOR BLAMING THE VIBRANT EJIKEME JOY MMESOMA OVER VARIATIONS IN JAMB SCORES
1. My attention was drawn to the media trial of my constituent; Ejikeme, Joy Mmesoma championed by Jamb Registrar PROF. OLOYEDE, whom accused her directly of faking result to win scholarship.
2. On this day Monday, 3rd July, I decided to visit her school and was further directed to her house. After listening to this intelligent young chap, I wept over the psychological trauma the incompetence of our system is about to push the young girl into,
3. Evidences before me showed that the young MMESOMA has been consistent in leading her class from Nursery school till date.
4. It’s more embarrassing that even under investigation her QR code keeps producing varying scores and names. Thus, this brings to question even the official result announced by Jamb following the obvious irregularities. Presently, I tried using the short code with her number to access her result for an hour, the effort proved abortive.
5. While it’s very unlikely that the people announced by JAMB REGISTRAR can do better than Ejikeme, Joy Mmesoma, if placed under the same examination condition, I strongly insist that the Jamb Registrar retracts his damaging press conference on my constituent pending conclusion of the investigation by the Police.
