Reno Omokri, a socio-political activist, has reacted to the controversy surrounding the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB, result of Ejikeme Mmesoma.

Omokri said the controversy surrounding Mmesoma’s JAMB result has shown that the 2023 general elections had divided Nigeria.

He noted that whipping up ethnic and religious sentiments over Mmesoma’s travail was unhelpful.

Tweeting, Omokri said the situation was a technical issues; hence innuendo that would divide Nigeria should not be encouraged.

According to Omokri: “The JAMB has given its verdict. If anyone has concrete evidence that they are lying or targeting any group of Nigerians, then come out with concrete proof, not innuendo. Whipping up ethnic and religious sentiments over a purely technical matter will not help anyone.

“Nigeria is already deeply divided from the #NigerianElections2023. There is no need to raise innuendo that will further divide the country. Rather than speculating or making this about ethnicity and bias against certain parts of Nigeria, why not hold your peace until the investigative panel set up by the Anambra State Government establishes the facts?

“And perhaps the Anambra State government and non-governmental bodies concerned should have FIRST verified from the JAMB DIRECTLY by writing them a letter before relying on social media reports.”
