Ejikeme Mmesoma accused of forgery offered scholarship to study in US, UK, Canada

Gaius Chibueze, the Nigerian entrepreneur, has offered to sponsor Ejikeme Mmesoma to any school of her choice in Canada, UK, and US.

Since the release of the 2023 UTME results, Mmesoma, a student of Anglican Girls Secondary School in Nnewi, Anambra has been attracting accolades from many Nigerians for allegedly being “the top scorer”.

But on Sunday, JAMB alleged that she manipulated her result to “deceive the public to fraudulently obtain a scholarship and other recognitions”.

The exam body said the student “actually got 249 in the exam and not 362” as widely assumed.

The board also withdrew her result and suspended her from partaking in UTME for the next three years.

But Mmesoma dismissed the forgery allegation against her.

Addressing the matter in a Twitter post, Chibueze said he will work together with his company to fund Mmesoma’s education up to the master’s level.

“I and our company @VoiceofTheEast are ready to offer Miss Joy Mmesoma a 100% scholarship to study in the UK, Canada or the United States of America,” he wrote on Twitter.

“Our team will work with her to get admission from any university of her choice in any of the above three (3) countries. We will take 100% charge of her fees and up keep until her master’s level.

“We are calling on @JAMBHQ to desist from such unprofessional behavior. This is not just an attack on her person but the entire Igbo race!”

Innocent Chukwuma, the founder of Innoson Motors, had previously awarded N3 million scholarship to the student.

The automobile company, however, said the scholarship would be withdrawn if she is found guilty of the forgery allegation.
