An Igbo businessman and philanthropist, Gaius Chibueze popularly known as Bitcoin chief has announced that he and his company have taken up funding responsibilities for Miss Mmesoma Ejikeme’s education upto Masters degree level.
Miss Mmesoma who had initially claimed to have had the highest score in the 2023 UTME with a score of 362 had attracted praise and adulation from Nigerians, one of which was a 3million scholarship by Innoson Vehicle Motors founder, Chief Innocent Chukwuma.
However, things took a wrong turn and her joy short-lived as JAMB would later make a disclaimer dissociating itself from the result, accusing the Nnewi indigene of forgery and threatening her with withdrawal of her original score of 249 and a 3 year ban from writing the UTME.
This did not sit well with many Nigerians who thronged out on Social Media to show solidarity with Mmesoma, accusing JAMB of engaging in a politically motivated witch-hunt targeted at the Igbo ethnic group, a claim that can’t really be substantiated since the current holder of the title is also Igbo and same state as Mmesoma.
Many are of the opinion that the result discrepancies was a result of JAMB’s general ineptitude in carrying out their function, and are using Ms Ejikeme to cover up for their mistakes, especially since state-wide results discrepancies was a trend every time the UTME was held.
It was in the heat of things that an American-based businessman and philanthropist, Gaius Chibueze popularly known as Bitcoin Chief took to his Twitter to share the good news. He stated that his company will cater for Ms Mmesoma’s education upto Masters Degree level.
Nigerians have since come out to celebrate with Mmesoma who had claimed to be traumatized over the weighty allegation of forgery leveled against her by the university admission’s czar.
