Mmesoma Ejikeme accused of forging her UTME result gets full scholarship to study in the UK, US or Canada

The 16-year-old Ejikeme Mmesoma accused of faking her UTME result as been offered a full scholarship to study in the United Kingdom United States of America (USA) or Canada.

The scholarship was offered to her by Gaius Chibueze, an Igbo businessman and philanthropist, also known as Bitcoin Chief.

Announcing the offer on Twitter on Monday, July 3, 2023, Gaius said his team would ensure they get her admission from any institution in the countries mentioned above.

He added that his company will take full responsibility of funding Miss Mmesoma Ejikeme‘s education up to the level of a Master’s degree.

Recall that Mmesoma Ejikeme had initially claimed to achieve the highest score in the 2023 UTME (Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination) with a remarkable score of 362.

This achievement garnered praise and admiration from Nigerians, including a generous 3 million Naira scholarship offer from Chief Innocent Chukwuma, the founder of Innoson Vehicle Motors.

However, the situation took a drastic turn when the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) issued a disclaimer, distancing itself from Miss Mmesoma’s purported result.

JAMB accused the young Nnewi native of forgery and threatened to revoke her original score of 249, imposing a three-year ban on her future participation in the UTME.

Amidst the turmoil, Gaius Chibueze, an American-based businessman and philanthropist renowned for his involvement in Bitcoin, expressed his support for Miss Mmesoma Ejikeme through a Twitter announcement.

He revealed that his company would cover the expenses of Ms. Mmesoma’s education, ensuring her journey up to the attainment of a Master’s degree.
