Charles Oputa, also known by his stage name Charly Boy, a famous Nigerian singer and socio-political activist, has jumped into the controversy surrounding Mmesoma Ejikeme’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, result.
Mmesoma, who claimed to have scored 362, the highest in the 2023 UTME, was later accused of fabricating her result by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB.
Mmesoma, who appeared in a viral video on Monday, expressed surprise that a result she printed from the JAMB webpage could be labelled as fake by the examination body without a thorough inquiry.
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.”
