Mmesoma Vs JAMB: A Victim of Circumstance?



Is Miss Mmesoma Ejikeme A Victim of Fraud or JAMB’s Perennial Ineptitude?

The internet has been agog over JAMB’s official disclaimer of 19 year old Ejikeme Mmesoma’s record breaking result where she appeared to have scored 362 which put her at the top of the rankings on the JAMB national leaderboards for the 2023 UTME.

The Aninri indigene who lives in Nnewi with her family had come out on 03/07/2023 to narrate her ordeal in the hands of JAMB who commissioned DSS to investigate the source of her result when she went to lay complaints over discrepancies in her result.

JAMB, through it’s spokesperson, Mr Fabian Benjamin in a live interview with Leadership TV, affirmed his earlier position and the institution’s stance that the result ‘paraded’ by Miss Ejikeme is doctored and did not come from them.

Doubling down, he revealed that Miss Ejikeme mutilated her result using a third party software that increases students score to their preferred choice, he however reiterated that these changes do not reflect on their database as the original results are stored offline, hence can’t be compromised. He also stated that her original score result has been withdrawn and she’d face a ban of 3 years as punishment as provided by the exam malpractice act.

To further substantiate his position, he noted that Ms Ejikeme’s result sheet is the old format issued by JAMB which was discontinued in 2022, and that the 2023 result sheet was a different format having added 17 new security features which could not be identified in Ms Ejikeme’s version. To verify this claim, we obtained UTME results sheets from this year’s candidates and compared with Ms Ejikeme’s and they did not match.

Reportera News set up an independent enquiry to unravel what was amiss. First we conducted a FACT-CHECK on SMS results provided by Ms Ejikeme, then contacted sources in JAMB who confirmed the spokesperson’s stance on forgery. We then proceeded to obtain her Original result sheet which indicated a score of 249, and not the claimed score of 362.

A quick scan of the QR code on the result shared by Ms Ejikeme revealed that the result belonged to one Asimiyu Mariam Omobolanla with registration number 11231597AC who scored 138, the scan also showed that the result was for the 2021 JAMB UTME, Miss Ejikeme had earlier confirmed this in her narration where she highlighted that she’d had made a complaint concerning this to the state’s commissioner for Education the previous Friday.

We went further to find this ‘third party software’ that the JAMB spokesperson had claimed was used in mutilating this result and after searching multiple Facebook groups advertising ‘upgrade your JAMB result’, we came across a post that directed interested persons to an Android App in the Google Play store called ‘JAMBFun-Fake JAMB Result Maker’.

We downloaded this app and at first glance, the result sheet appeared to be a replica of Miss Ejikeme’s, we decided to scan the QR code and it redirected us to the same result with the one in Miss Ejikeme’s result sheet, ‘11231597AC Asimiyu Mariam Omobolanla 138.’

Whilst the case is still dicey at the moment, the evidence that are available seem not to favour the young chap who had set her eyes towards academic exploits. Many Nigerians have thronged out to show solidarity with her, citing reasons such as politically motivated ethnic witch-hunting due to her background, and JAMB’s consistent ineptitude in carrying out their duty.

Public Opinion appears to have swayed in Miss Ejikeme’s favour thus whilst we await a final verdict based on the outcome of the investigation, Nigerians who have stood in solidarity with her can only wish or assume that either Ms Ejikeme was unknowingly roped into a result manipulation scheme, seeing how naive she appears to be or that JAMB had made a dastardly error and trying to cover up.

The suspension stems from the recent political turmoil that engulfed the nation, with the African Union pointing to the coup orchestrated by Gen Abdourahamane Tchiani on Wednesday, July 26. As part of a series of sanctions imposed on the francophone West African country, the Republic of Niger faced the repercussions of its internal upheaval.

The African Union’s stance was uncompromising, as it made it clear that Western nations seeking to meddle in African affairs should refrain from interfering. This firm message was directed from the heart of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, where the AU’s call for autonomy echoed loudly.

The events leading up to Niger’s suspension unfolded against a backdrop of political uncertainty and unrest. The coup in Niger, orchestrated by Gen Abdourahamane Tchiani, prompted the Afican Union to take action. Their decision to suspend Niger was not taken lightly and was ratified during the Peace and Security Council meeting in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on August 22.

The aftermath of the military takeover in left President Mohamed Bazoum in captivity, held under the close watch of the juntas in Niger. Despite international pressure, the release of the president and his family remains elusive. This tense situation compelled the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) to intervene, imposing sanctions on Niger and establishing a deadline for the initiation of military intervention by the sub-regional body’s standby forces.

The suspension of the Republic of Niger from the African Union serves as a stark reminder of the continent’s commitment to upholding stability and safeguarding democratic governance.

Peter Obi: “I Campaigned For Presidency Because I Can Say It Any Day, I Will Solve The Problem Of Nigeria”



In a recent tweet that has caught the attention of many, @MissPearls shares an inspiring declaration made by former Anambra state governor and Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi. According to @MissPearls, Peter Obi proclaimed, “I campaigned for Presidency because I can say it any day, I Will SOLVE THE PROBLEM OF NIGERIA. All these confusion everywhere can BE SOLVED, and I am PREPARED for it”

Peter Obi: I Campaigned For Presidency Because I Can Say It Any Day, I Will Solve The Problem Of Nigeria.

Peter Obi’s bid for the presidency in the recent elections stirred considerable excitement and garnered support from diverse quarters, particularly the youth demographic. The former governor is known for his progressive ideas and pragmatic approach to governance, which resonated with many Nigerians who sought change and effective solutions to the country’s myriad challenges.

Despite his extensive support and well-articulated vision, Peter Obi’s presidential ambitions faced formidable opponents in the election. The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) released results that placed him behind the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who emerged as the winner, and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who came second. However, these results were met with skepticism due to apparent electoral irregularities that marred the integrity of the process.

In response to the controversial election outcome, both Peter Obi and Atiku Abubakar filed legal challenges against the INEC’s declaration. This move underscores their commitment to upholding the democratic process and ensuring that the voice of the electorate is accurately reflected. As the election Tribunal Judges prepare to deliver their verdict, Nigeria watches with bated breath, eager to witness justice being served.

Meanwhile, the administration of Mr. Bola Ahmed Tinubu has taken significant policy actions since assuming office. The removal of fuel subsidies and the decision to float the Naira have triggered mixed reactions across the nation. While these measures may be intended to foster economic stability and growth, the immediate consequences have been felt by everyday Nigerians. The cost of living has surged, and the socio-economic effects on the rich and the poor have become more pronounced.

As the Nigerian population navigates these shifts, the aftermath of the election and the ensuing governance strategies offer a critical juncture for evaluating the nation’s trajectory. The voices of discontent, expressed by citizens facing the brunt of these policies, highlight the necessity for leaders to prioritize the well-being of the populace while pursuing economic advancements. It is essential for the government to strike a balance between fiscal prudence and safeguarding the interests of the vulnerable segments of society.

The policy changes implemented by Bola Tinubu have shed light on the delicate balance between progress and the welfare of the people. As the nation waits for the tribunal’s judgment and the dust settles on the recent election, Nigeria stands at a crossroads, with the potential to reshape its future trajectory and address the systemic challenges that have held it back for far too long.

Hundreds of determined youths in Kano took to the streets, defying a police ban, to protest what they perceive as attempts to manipulate the state election petition tribunal.

The rally, which unfolded outside the state government house, saw impassioned youths brandishing placards with messages that underscored their commitment to justice and the integrity of the electoral process. Their actions were sparked by concerns over an alleged plan to bribe the state election petition tribunal, casting a shadow over the fairness of the process.

The ban on protests was issued in response to recent revelations made by Justice Flora Azinge, who unveiled purported schemes by lawyers to disrupt the course of justice through financial incentives. The Commissioner of Police cited “confirmatory intelligence products” as the basis for this decision, leaving a contentious atmosphere surrounding the freedom of assembly and the right to peaceful protest.

This ban, however, failed to deter the resolute youths who carried a variety of placards conveying their strong stance against corruption, manipulation, and injustice. The slogans they chanted resonated with their determination to safeguard the sanctity of the electoral process and uphold transparency in governance.

Among the messages displayed, one placard caught the eye with its direct callout: “Gandollar, stop spoiling the name of Tinubu.” This highlights the allegation that financial impropriety is tainting the reputation of key political figures.

In a video circulated online, the enthusiastic protesters chanted slogans that echoed their deep-seated concerns. Chants of “No to corruption,” “No to injustice,” and “No to manipulation” reverberated through the crowd, embodying the youth’s unwavering commitment to fair and accountable governance.

Addressing the gathering, Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf praised the peaceful conduct of the protesters and assured them that their concerns would be relayed to President Bola Tinubu. This gesture recognizes the role of the youth in shaping political discourse and underscores the importance of their voices in the pursuit of a just society.

In conclusion, the youths in Kano have seized the moment to voice their concerns and demands for an unbiased electoral process. Their defiance of the police ban serves as a reminder that public sentiment cannot be easily suppressed. As this incident unfolds, it raises important questions about the delicate balance between freedom of assembly, legitimate protest, and maintaining public order. It also underscores the critical role of the youth in shaping the political landscape and demanding accountability from their leaders.
