UTME Fraud: My Daughter Didn’t Open Up To Me On Time, Says Mmesoma’s Father
Romanus Ejikeme, father of embattled Anambra Student, Nmesoma Ejikeme, who recently confessed to the forgery of the result of her 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination has said that his daughter didn’t confess her “crime” to him on time.
Romanus disclosed this on Saturday in an interview with NTA News shared on Twitter.
Nmesoma’s father pleaded with Nigerians and Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board to forgive his daughter.
He said, “As I said earlier, my daughter didn’t open up to me on time. When I realised the mistake that she made, I blamed her.
“I tell her every day to be careful not to dent her image as a star. I apologise to JAMB and Nigerians to pardon her.”
JAMB had last Sunday accused Mmesoma of manually inflating her 2023 UTME result from 249 to 362 and went ahead to obtain a scholarship from Innoson which has now been withdrawn.
