However, in a video interview with the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA), Romanus claims his daughter lied to him; now that he knows the truth, he wishes that JAMB could pardon his daughter.

The Apology

Romanius Ejikeme’s apology is coming hours after the Anambra State Government committee of inquiry set up to look into the controversy surrounding the JAMB result, indicted Mmesoma of forging her result unaided.

Mmesoma’s father admitted that he didn’t know where his daughter registered for the examination, but he gave her the money for the registration.

“My daughter did not open up to me on time; when I realised her mistake, I blamed her.
