The Anambra State Government has distanced itself from claims by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) that the result of Mmesoma Ejikeme, a student of Anglican Girls Secondary School (AGSS), Nnewi, is fake.


The Commissioner for Information, Mr Paul Nwosu said the investigation was still ongoing when JAMB issued a press release stating the result is fake.


In a statement issued on Wednesday, Nwosu said the student and her school came to him to say she got 362, while JAMB recognized someone who scored 360 as the highest scorer.


He said the Commissioner for Education intervened, but the board involved the Department of States Services (DSS) to investigate but made disclaimed Mmesoma’s result before the investigation was concluded.
