UTME: There’s A Plot To Deny My Daughter Scholarship, Says Father Of Pupil Accused Of Forgery


Mr. Ejikeme Romanus, father of the teenage student accused of forging her Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UMTE) result has alleged that there is a conspiracy against his daughter.

Ejikeme Joy Mmesoma has been in the news since Sunday when the Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) accused her of forgery.

According to Fabian Benjamin, spokesman of the examination body, the student scored 249 but changed her result to 362.

But In an interview with Leadership newspaper, Ejikeme Romanus stated that his daughter had showcased sterling academic brilliance at a young age and always claimed first position in her class, starting from nursery to secondary school. He said he believes his daughter cannot manipulate her result.

“We are from Oduma in Aninri local government in Enugu state, but we live in Uruagu, Nnewi. Mmesoma is my first child. She had always taken first position from the time she was in the nursery school at Ogbunike Central School".

When she was at Oba Girls’ Secondary School, Mmesoma was representing the school in competitions. So when she changed to Anglican Girls’ Secondary School, her teachers in Oba Girls came and pleaded with me, begging me to retain her in their school; that she is promoting the name of their school''.

''Mmesoma cannot manipulate her UTME score. I don’t believe what they are saying. They just want to transfer that scholarship to another person. That is why they are saying that Mmesoma did not make that score".


''It is even her (Mmesoma) friends that saw her score on the internet and started calling her before she went and printed it out. We have the print-out with us now” Mmesoma’s father said

Ejikeme lamented that his daughter had been feeling very sad and even crying sometimes, after her visit to the commissioner of education from where she was taken to the DSS office.
