Anambra Government Disputes JAMB, Forms Committee On Mmesoma's Case

The position of the Anambra State government regarding the handling of the University and Tertiary Matriculation Examination results presented by Mmesoma Ejikeme has been criticized by the government.

In a statement released on Wednesday, the state Commissioner for Information, Sir Paul Nwosu, stated that an investigation is underway to determine the truth behind the result, as the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) had condemned it as fake.

Nwosu further announced the formation of an eight-member committee to thoroughly investigate the JAMB/Mmesoma issue, with the findings of the committee to be made public. The committee is chaired by Prof. Nkemdili Nnonyelu and includes other members such as Prof. Mercy Okonkwo, Prof. Ngozi Chuma-Udeh, Prof. Maduabuchi Dukor, Prof. Jaja Nwanegbo, Rev. Sr. Prof. Mary-Felicia Opara, Rev. Cannon Dr. Uchenna Umeifekwem, and Mr. Chukwuemeka Fred Agbata, the Managing Director of Anambra Information Communication Technology Agency.
