The 19-year-old candidate who engaged in forgery of her Unified Tertiary and Matriculation Examination(UTME), results, Mmesoma Ejikene has passionately begged the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to forgive her.
Penpushing reports that she made the appeal on Wednesday during the investigative hearing organised by the ad hoc committee mandated by the House of Representatives to probe the forgery allegation against her.
The student who had earlier claimed that her result was genuine, but after proper investigation confessed to the forgery lamented that words alone cannot describe the pain she feels for letting the examination body down, explaining that that was the first time in her life and academic journey that she will be accused of any wrongdoing.
Penpushing further reports that the girl appealed to the Registrar of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof Ishaq Oloyede, to review the three years’ ban placed on her, emphasisng that she strongly sought for forgiveness.
“I strongly seek your forgiveness for the mistake I made. Words alone cannot describe the pain I feel for letting you down. This is the first time in my life and academic journey that I will be accused of any wrongdoing’, she said
Penpushing also reports that Ejikeme read a prepared letter addressed to the Joint Admission and Maltriculation Board(JAMB) Registrar admitting to have committed the forgery, blaming ignorance for her action
Meanwhile, the student who looked sober while reading the letter appealed to the authorities of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board(JAMB) to temper justice with mercy by reducing the punishment given to her by the Board.
