Charles Oputa, the maverick singer, who is also known as Charly Boy, has reacted to the interesting saga of Ejikeme Joy Mmesoma, a candidate of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), who admitted to using her phone to inflate her score to 362.
Recall that with the recent release of scores of candidates who applied for admission by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), and the subsequent announcement of Nkechiyere Umeh as the candidate with the highest score of 360, a 19-year-old student of Anglican Girls’ Secondary School, Uruagu Nnewi, Mmesoma protested that she scored 362.
However, a Committee set up by the Anambra state government to investigate her claims reported that Mmesoma admitted to manipulating her results.
Reacting via his Twitter handle on Sunday, Charly Boy said Mmesoma succeeded in fooling many including himself but added that she learnt forgery from the political leaders.
He wrote, “Mmesoma Ejikeme fooled many including me, check out the fluency with which she defended herself with such innocence. These children na wa, ooo.
“She is still a brilliant girl so let’s not be in a hurry to destroy her, the parents have a lot of counselling to do with her, by the way, who never fuckup, raise ur hand.
“She learned work from leaders that believed that forgery is good plus those who never found their WAEC results till date. Am sure she was in dis Naija as INEC was manipulating Nigeria electoral process.”
