Osigwe’s words: “That girl was one of the most brilliant in her school, according to the Principal, her parents couldn’t even afford to pay for her WAEC and NECO Exams. Of what advantage will it offer her to manipulate her JAMB score? Let the poor breathe pls.
“The girl I met doesn’t have the brain and capacity to manipulate her result. There is more to this story. A proper investigation needs to be done. Abeg let the poor breath.”
@Crytolord said: “I don’t believe she manipulated any result.” @Air_meccal reacted: “Is JAMB saying their portal has been compromised?” @|feanyi _Online reacted: “There’s nothing to investigate. JAMB is defaming her
@The_Akachukwu reacted: “I have a personal experience with this, I received two text messages telling me my results, the first gave me 285, my teachers and friends saw it, we were all celebrating, then another came and what I saw shocked my being. The joy left me.” @sapalona_ commented: “She doesn’t have to do it herself na. They expelled 125 people in 2019 or thereabout for inflating post utme scores in Unilag. You people should rest. I’m sure more people did it all over the country. Hers is just talked about because she was said to be the highest.”
