The Anambra State Commissioner for Education, Prof. Ngozi Chuma-Udeh, has said that the embattled 19-year-old student of Anglican Girls Secondary School, Nnewi, Miss Mmesoma Ejikeme, is undergoing psychotherapy class.
Chuma-Udeh revealed this while speaking with Journalists in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
Mmesoma, months ago, made the headlines after the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board called her out for fraudulently manipulating her UTME score from 249 to 362, thereby falsely parading herself as UTME top scorer for 2023.
Before admitting the forgery, Mmesoma had engaged JAMB in accusation and counter-accusation, with the exam body slamming a three-year ban on her.
“She is still undergoing a psychotherapy class with the state-appointed psychotherapist,” the Commissioner said.
The don said she had adopted Miss Mmesoma Ejikeme as her daughter and would see her through school to actualise her dreams.
“I decided to adopt Miss Mmesoma to help her actualise her tall dreams in this World. She is human, so we cannot throw her away like that. We are not going to let her down. We are still pleading with the JAMB to reconsider her,” she said.
