Charles Oputa, also known by his stage name Charly Boy, a famous Nigerian singer and socio-political activist, has jumped into the controversy surrounding Mmesoma Ejikeme’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, result.
Mmesoma, who claimed to have scored 362, the highest in the 2023 UTME, was later accused of fabricating her result by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB.
However, Mmesoma expressed shock that a result she printed out from the JAMB webpage could be labelled as fake by the examination board without thorough inquiry in a viral video she talked in on Monday.
She fiercely refuted the accusation, claiming that she is incapable of manipulating her own outcome.
Speaking on the situation, Charly Boy, who took to Twitter on Monday night, expressed scepticism over JAMB’s allegation.
He called on the board to make Mmesoma’s examination papers available for a remark by an external body.
He wrote, “JAMB must produce her paper for an external body to remark. I don’t trust the mark they claim they awarded her right now.
“JAMB has ended up making the young girl popular and the girl on the other hand exposed JAMB corruption & ineptitude just like INEC.”
