Miss Mmesoma Ejikeme has again openly apologised to the Registrar of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board JAMB, Professor Ishaq Oloyede.
Miss Ejikeme requested that the board temper justice with Mercy and recall the 3 years ban imposed on her by JAMB.
Mmesoma read the letter of apology at an investigative hearing organised by the House of Representatives Adhoc Committee to investigate the alleged manipulation of her UTME result.
“This is the first time in my academic history that I am involved in any type of scandal. It is not in my character and I wholeheartedly plead for mercy” Miss Ejikeme said.

Earlier, the Registrar of JAMB, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede reaffirmed that Mnesoma manipulated her Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME result.
Professor Ishaq said after careful investigation, it was proven and discovered that the candidate scored 249 and not 369 as she claimed.
He said that since the year 2020, the Board had put up a mechanism to curb identity theft.
Prof Oloyede also said that it was practically impossible for anyone to prove that fake results come from JAMB.
He said that the examination number presented by Mnesoma and her sort code were fake.
” She attempted to deceive our system but the system gave her her actual results. We believe that nothing fake can come from us. The name of the center she paraded had changed since 2019.” Prof Oloyede said.
The Chairman of the committee, Sada Soli, said the investigation was initiated to get to the root of the matter.
Other Members of the committee commended Mnesoma Ejikeme for coming out clean and urged JAMB to tamper justice with mercy.
They also advised JAMB to fix its system to curb lapses.
Two weeks ago the House moved in support of a motion to investigate the said alleged manipulation of UTME results by Mmesoma.
