Famous Nigerian entertainer and socio-political activist, Charles Oputa, known by his stage name, Charly Boy, has waded into the controversy surrounding the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, score of the Anambra schoolgirl, Mmesoma Ejikeme.
Ngnews247 reports that Mmesoma who earlier claimed to have scored 362, highest in the 2023 UTME examination, was later accused by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, of forging her result.
However, Mmesoma who spoke in a viral video on Monday, expressed surprise that a result she printed out from the JAMB portal could be termed as fake by the examination board without proper investigation.
She vehemently denied the allegation, saying she is not capable of manipulating her own result.
Speaking on the matter, Charly Boy, who took to his Twitter handle on Monday night, expressed skepticism on the claim by JAMB.
He called on the board to make Mmesoma’s examination papers available for a remark by an external body.
He wrote, “JAMB must produce her paper for an external body to remark. I don’t trust the mark they claim they awarded her right now.
“JAMB has ended up making the young girl popular and the girl on the other hand exposed JAMB corruption & ineptitude just like INEC.”
