This statement comes after Joy Ejikeme, an Anambra student, was accused by JAMB of inflating her Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) score from 249 to 362, leading to a scholarship from Innoson Motors.
Dr Nnanyelugo expressed support for Joy Ejikeme and shared his own experience from 2009, stating that JAMB changed his score four times.
According to his tweet, he recounted seeing different scores each time he checked the JAMB portal: 162, 286, 215, and 214.
He further highlighted that during that period, he was using a Nokia touch phone and had no knowledge of operating a computer, raising questions about the source of the score manipulations.
“In 2009, JAMB changed my score 4 times, 162, 286, 215, 214. Each day it kept on changing, I was using Nokia touch then, I don’t even know how to operate a computer then, so who was manipulating my own result then?”
JAMB officials have yet to release an official statement regarding the allegations made by @Nnanyelugo13 and others.
However, it is anticipated that the regulatory body will launch an inquiry into the matter to ascertain the veracity of the claims and take appropriate action if necessary.
Ina recent development that has caused a stir on social media, a Nigerian man with Twitter handle @Nnanyelugo13 has come forward with claims of score manipulation by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).
