Mr Romanus Ejikeme who is the father of Mmesoma, the Anambra pupil whose JAMB result is currently being disputed by the board has alleged that some people are trying to stop the N3 million scholarship his daughter secured from Innoson motors chairman, Innocent Chukwuma.
In an interview with Leadership newspaper, Ejikeme stated that his daughter had showcased sterling academic brilliance from her nursery school days and always claimed first position in her class, starting from nursery to secondary school. He said he believes his daughter cannot manipulate her result.
“We are from Oduma in Aninri local government in Enugu state, but we live in Uruagu, Nnewi. Mmesoma is my first child. She had always taken first position from the time she was in the nursery school at Ogbunike Central School.
When she was at Oba Girls’ Secondary School, Mmesoma was representing the school in competitions. So when she changed to Anglican Girls’ Secondary School, her teachers in Oba Girls came and pleaded with me, begging me to retain her in their school; that she is promoting the name of their school.
