The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has warned intending Candidates, to stay away from fake app that promise to enhance their scores.

The board said the end result would always be anguish and misery.

Jamb also stated that it is ever determined to continue to forge ahead despite unwarranted attacks on it capacity.

The board in a statement signed by the Head of Media and Publicity, Dr Fabian Benjamin, Jamb says the report of the Commission of Inquiry set up by the Anambra State Government, an independent body, as demanded by some Nigerians to look into the Mmesoma Ejikeme’s saga, JAMB says the report has vindicated the Board.

The board has however congratulated Miss Kamyosikwu Chinyere Uche as the best scorer in the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.

The board also said that the report has further reinforced the position of the Board that its system was not and cannot be compromised.

Jamb called on Nigerians to learn to appreciate the genuine efforts of their critical national institutions to chart the course of national rebirth.

“Hence, this attitude of attacking everything that makes the nation proud even by people who should know better, is disheartening

The flip side of this is to infer that some ethnic jingoists had perhaps been elevated to public office and recognition beyond their mental and emotional capacity”.

The Board reaffirmed that it has built a reputation in terms of the conduct of credible examinations over the years and will not fail the nation at this critical juncture of its development.

“Therefore, we will not despair in spite of the painful realisation that some Nigerians would do anything to cast aspersions on the good name of the Board”

For the benefit of those who still doubt the capacity of Mmesoma to commit this egregious crime and those who are pushing the narrative that the girl is just 16 years old even against all available data that indicate her age as an adult of 19 years old.

Mmesoma has owned up to committing the heinous infraction, which was carefully crafted to destroy the very foundation of one of the nation’s agencies charged with the critical role of apportioning the limited educational resource of the nation based on fairness equity and integrity.

It’s therefore, highly regrettable that some Nigerians, who do not believe in the strength and resourcefulness of their nation’s institutions, would latch on to any opportunity to pull the Board down to their level of perfidy.

Candidates, on their part, are warned to stay away from fraudulent Apps that promise to enhance their scores as the end result would always be anguish and misery.

The Mmesoma case should serve as an eye-opener, especially to those who hold the view that anything goes in Nigeria.

“The Board, on its part, will continue to appreciate the unalloyed support of those who even risked being attacked by the social media mob to stand on the side of truth. Your trust in us would never be taken for granted as we also appeal to our detractors to sheathe their swords and be part of the movement to build a greater Nigeria”

However, in spite of all the posturing of its detractors, the Board remains resolute and uncompromising in its commitment to give Nigeria the best as far as credible and fair assessment is concerned.
