Embattled Anambra schoolgirl Mmesoma Ejikeme finally accepts 249 as her UTME score

The embattled Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), candidate, Mmesoma Ejikeme, has admitted scoring 249 in the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

Ejikeme, a student of Anglican Girls Secondary School in Nnewi, Anambra State, was first called out by the examination body on Sunday for manually inflating her score to receive a N3m scholarship from Innoson Motors.

Both the student and her parents had refuted the allegations, asserting that Ejikeme has always been a brilliant girl who was incapable of forging her result.

In a turn of events however, Ejikeme has now accepted that 249 was her actual score and that she should not be blamed for the way the events played out.

The young girl made this known when she featured on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily on Wednesday, July 5, 2023.

She said should not be blamed for the mixup.

The 19-year-old had claimed to have earned JAMB’s highest score after her UTME result slip showed 362.

But, JAMB had faulted the result, stressing that she forged it.

The claims and counter-claims between Mmesoma and JAMB caused a major controversy across Nigeria.

Amid the controversy, the board insisted she forged the result on a template it stopped using since 2021.

Admitting that the first result was wrong, Mmesoma said she should not be blamed for the mixup.

“After all said and done, I now saw that I got 249.

“I sent them a text message there to know what really happened — the JAMB Support System. If they go to their system, they will see it there.”

She also faulted JAMB’s three-year ban on her, stressing that it was not her fault.

“It’s not my fault that I printed my result like that, and they said that I forged my result. It’s not my fault. So, them banning it is not fair,” she said.

17-year-old Nigerian boy defies UTME failure, makes N14.5m from comic books he writes

A Nigerian boy who faced disappointment after failing Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) twice has found immense success by tapping into his talent as a comic book writer.

The inspiring story, which went viral on Twitter thanks to user Dev Tobs, sheds light on the young boy’s journey to financial prosperity and academic pursuits.

According to the Twitter thread, the unnamed boy attempted the UTME twice but did not achieve the desired results.

However, his family recognized his gift for writing and encouraged him to explore it further.

In a fortuitous twist, his brother, a close friend of Dev Tobs and a software engineer, advised him to publish his comic books on popular platforms like Amazon, Etsy, and others.

The boy channeled his efforts into his newfound passion and began publishing his comic books on the online platforms. The response was overwhelming, with readers appreciating his creative storytelling and unique artistic style.

As a result, his comic books started gaining significant traction and popularity, leading to substantial financial success.

The Twitter thread revealed that the talented writer amassed an astonishing sum of N14.5 million (approximately $19,000) within a span of two years.

Overwhelmed by his success, the boy made a life-changing decision to pursue his dreams further by relocating to Canada to pursue a bachelor’s degree.

The tweet reads;

“He wrote JAMB twice with no major headway, but his folks noticed he had a flair for writing, hence his brother who’s my close pal, also a software Engineer, advised he starts hoisting the comic books he writes on this Amazon thingy, Etsy and one other one.” He has made so much money from it.

“Yes, you didn’t misread, he made $19k (N14.5 million). Two years down the line today, I got news he’s moved up to Canada for his bachelor’s and I couldn’t stop but feel happier.”
