The governor of Anambra State, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, has directed that Mmesomma Ejikeme, the student of Anglican Girls Secondary School, Nnewi, who has been at the centre of a JAMB score controversy, undergo counselling.
In a letter to the principal of Anglican Girls Secondary School Nnewi, Soludo directed the immediate commencement of psychological counselling and therapy sessions for Ejikeme.
The student admitted on Thursday, July 6, 2023, that she manipulated her JAMB results to arrive at 362, which was the highest in the country.
Soludo directed that the 19-year-old be handed over to a Professor of Clinical Psychology in a letter signed by the Commissioner for Education, Prof. Ngozi Chuma-Udeh.
Chuma-Udeh said: “The directive is in line with one of the recommendations of the committee set up by the Anambra State Government to investigate the matter, following the parading of the fake results, which elicited interests and generated controversy and misgivings.”
