Mmesoma Ejikeme has admitted to manipulating her Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) result, according to an official confirmation by a panel of inquiry established by the Anambra State Government. The panel, composed of eight members appointed by Governor Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, conducted an investigation into the controversy surrounding Mmesoma's UTME result and released an eight-page report detailing their findings.

The report conclusively revealed that Mmesoma's initial claim of scoring 362 in the UTME was false. In reality, she had obtained a score of 249. The panel conducted interviews with various individuals involved in the process, including Mmesoma herself, officials from the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), and the principal of Anglican Girls' Secondary School, where Mmesoma is enrolled.

During the investigation, it was discovered that Mmesoma had used a different registration number to submit a request to JAMB, which falsely inflated her UTME score. However, JAMB confirmed that her actual score was indeed 249. Mmesoma confessed that she had manipulated her results personally using her phone.

In light of these findings, the panel recommended that Mmesoma issue a written apology to JAMB, her school (Anglican Girls' Secondary School, Uruagu Nnewi), and the state government. Additionally, the report suggested that she undergo psychological counseling and therapy to address the underlying reasons for her actions.

The panel commended JAMB for their diligent handling of the matter and the transparency in providing information regarding their interaction with Mmesoma. The report aims to clarify any misunderstandings or misinterpretations surrounding the controversy. The panel also expressed gratitude to Governor Soludo for initiating the establishment of the committee and entrusting them with the task of conducting the investigation.
