JAMB: Notification Slip Presented By Mmesoma Ejikeme Obsolete Since 2021 — Spokesman

JAMB: Notification Slip Presented By Mmesoma Ejikeme Obsolet

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has revealed that the design of the result notification slip for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) printed by Mmesoma Ejikeme was last used in 2021.

JAMB had accused Mmesoma of parading a fake result with 362 as her total score in the 2023 UTME against the 249 recorded by the board.

Fabian Benjamin, JAMB's Public Relations Officer, stated this in a statement made available to The Punch's correspondent on Tuesday.

Mmesoma is the only 2023 UTME candidate who paraded the obsolete design of the notification slip which JAMB described as "patently fake.”

The statement reads: “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.

“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 Ejikeme Joy Mmesoma, and in line with its established procedures, has withdrawn her 2023 UTME result and also barred her from sitting the Board’s examination for the next three years.”

Meanwhile, the examination body has barred Mmesoma from sitting for the UTME for the next three years. 

Her 2023 result has also been withdrawn by the board as stated by its Public Relations Officer, Dr Fabian Benjamin.
