2023 UTME Result: ‘I’m irritated’ — Asari Dokubo questions Mmesoma’s age.

Published

Niger Delta activist, Asari Dokubo has questioned the age of the candidate of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, Mmesoma Ejikeme.

Dokubo wonders why Mmesoma wrote JAMB at age 19 when his children completed their secondary school education at 15 and 16 years respectively.

Dokubo noted that Mmesoma’s age might have been altered before she took the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME.

In a Facebook live, the former militant leader wondered why Mmesoma would claim to be writing JAMB at 19 years old when his children finished school at 15 and 16 years old.

According to Dokubo: “I have actually checked the little girl’s details, and I observed that there is the possibility that her age was altered before she sat for the exam.

“If not, why will she be writing JAMB at 19 when my own children finished school between the ages of 15 & 16. I saw 2004 in her details that I saw.

“One sure fact is that we know all these things, but we may choose not to talk. Now, I have to talk because I am irritated by what some people are saying. Something that is an obvious lie is what some people are comfortable with.”

Mmesoma, a student of Anglican Girls Secondary School in Nnewi, Anambra State, and JAMB were in the news early this week over the former’s UTME result.

Mmesoma had insisted she scored 362 in her UTME, but JAMB accused her of forging the result.

The examination body insisted that the 19-year-old scored 249 and not 362.

Mmesoma has admitted that she scored 249.

Hardship: We Plan To Establish A National Commodity Board To Crash Food Prices – VP Shettima

Published

on

Vice President, Kashim Shettima, disclosed this on Tuesday during a two-day high-level strategic meeting on climate change, food systems and resource mobilization held at the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

According to Shettima, the board’s mandate includes assessing and regulating food prices, as well as overseeing a strategic food reserve to stabilize prices of critical grains and other essential food items.

“Our solution to the potential food crisis has become immediate, medium, and long-term strategies. The short-term strategy entails revitalizing the food supply through specific interventions like the distribution of fertilizers and grains to farmers and households to counteract the effects of subsidy removal; fostering collaboration between the Ministry of Agriculture and the Ministry of Water Resources for efficient farmland irrigation, ensuring year-round food production, and addressing price volatility by establishing a National Commodity Board.
“This board will continually assess and regulate food prices, maintaining a strategic food reserve for stabilizing prices of crucial grains and other food items,” Shettima said.

On how the government is handling the security challenges that have prevented farmers from working on their farms, he said:

“I wish to assure you that we will engage our security architecture to protect the farms and the farmers so that farmers can return to the farmlands without fear of attacks.
“We won’t only make it safe for farmers to return to their farms, but we will also ensure the activation of land banks. There are currently 500,000 hectares of already mapped land that will be used to increase the availability of arable land for farming, which will immediately impact food output.”
