A statement by Commissioner for Information, Sir Paul Nwosu, said Anambra State Government has been following the JAMB-Mmesoma Ejikeme matter with keen interest.

Nwosu explained that they are aware that Ejikeme went to the office of the Anambra State Commissioner for Education, Professor Ngozi Chuma-Udeh with her UTME result to protest that JAMB did not recognise her as the candidate with the highest score.

The Commissioner in turn called JAMB to confirm her claim but she was told that Mmesoma’s result was forged.

“It is not our wish to join the slanging match or take sides at this stage. But as a responsible government we have decided to undertake an independent investigation into the matter,” the commissioner said.

“In the light of the above, Anambra State Government has set up a Committee of Inquiry to thoroughly investigate the JAMB-Mmesoma matter.”

The statement said the findings of the Committee would be made public after conclusion.
