The Anambra State Commissioner for Education, Prof. Ngozi Chuma-Udeh, says she has adopted Mmesoma Ejikeme, a student of Anglican Girls Secondary School, Nnewi, who reportedly forged her 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination result.
Chuma-Udeh said she adopted Mmesoma as a daughter to help her actualise her dreams in life.
She disclosed this to journalists in Awka, on Saturday, shortly after receiving an award presented to her by FreeNews Magazine.
She said, “She is not the first I am adopting. Even as a lecturer, I have been adopting children and training them through schools.
“Mmesoma is doing very, very well. She is still undergoing a psycho-therapy class with the state appointed psycho-therapist.
“I decided to adopt Mmesoma to help her actualise her dreams. She is a human being, so we cannot throw her away like that. We are not going to let her down. We are still pleading with JAMB to reconsider her.
“Governor Chukwuma Soludo is very passionate about every citizen in Anambra State. So we will train her through her education.”
The commissioner, however, thanked the organisers of the award for recognising her, saying the honour will ginger her to do more for the state.
Earlier, the Chairman of FreeNews Magazine Editorial Board, Obinna Mbonu, said the award was in recognition of the commissioner’s ability to drive the vision and mission of the governor in the education sector.
