r. Romanus Ejikeme, the father of Mmesoma Ejikeme, the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) candidate who falsified her result, has tendered an unreserved apology to JAMB and Nigerians.
The Nation reports eight-member panel set up by Anambra Governor Charles Soludo to investigate the controversies surrounding the results, had exposed the candidate.
JAMB barred Mmesoma from taking its exam for the next three years.
Romanus admitted that he didn’t know where his daughter registered for the examination but he gave her the money for the registration.
Mmesoma’s father had insisted that her daughter did not forge her results saying that she was a hardworking and studious student who did not joke with her studies.
“But I gave her the money for the registration, and I can vouch for her that she cannot forge any result,” Ejikeme had said then.
Backtracking, Mmesoma’s father said: “As I said earlier, my daughter didn’t open up to me on time, she didn’t. Then I realised the mistake she did, I warned her and pleaded her not to dent her image.
“I’m still apologising to Nigerians and JAMB to pardon her”.
