Mmesoma: Anambra commissioner adopts embattled UTME candidate, gives reason

The Anambra state commissioner for education, Professor Ngozi Chuma-Udeh, has adopted Miss Mmesoma Ejikeme, the embattled 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) candidate.

Speaking in Awka, the state capital on Saturday, September 16, Prof. Chuma-Udeh said she adopted Mmesoma to help her actualize her dreams in life.

The commissioner noted that she adopted Mmesoma to see her through school, adding that the state government will not let her down.

She said: “Mmesoma is not the first person I am adopting. Even as a lecturer, I was adopting children and training them through schools.

“Mmesoma is doing very well and she is still undergoing a psychotherapy class with the state-appointed psychotherapist.

“I decided to adopt her to help her actualize her dreams. She is a human being, so we cannot throw her away just like that.

“We are not going to let her down. We are still pleading with JAMB to reconsider its decision concerning her.

“Governor Chukwuma Soludo is very passionate about every citizen in Anambra State and so, we will train her through her education.”
