Innoson Vehicles has revoked the scholarship it awarded to Joy Mmesoma Ejikeme after she admitted to fabricating her JAMB UTME score.

The company stated it made the difficult decision to revoke the scholarship awarded to Mmesoma, citing its unwavering commitment to honesty, integrity, and merit-based recognition as justification.

This was stated in a statement released on Saturday by Cornel Osigwe, the Head of Corporate Communications and Affairs for the Innoson Group.

The company disclosed it was conducting an investigation into allegations regarding Mmesoma's 2023 UTME examination results.

Osigwe stated that the investigation's findings corroborated that Mmesoma manipulated her UTME scores, lamenting that the conclusion was profoundly disheartening and in direct opposition to the values held by Innoson Group, particularly in regard to the scholarship program.

The statement read: "In recent days, we have been involved in the process of investigating allegations surrounding the 2023 UTME examination results of one of our scholarship recipients, Miss Joy Mmesoma Ejikeme. It was reported initially that Miss Joy scored exceptionally high on the exam, a feat that led to her being awarded a scholarship by our company.

"Further to this, a committee set up by the Anambra State Governor, Dr. Charles Chukwuma Soludo, carried out a thorough independent investigation into this matter.

"The findings from this rigorous investigation have now confirmed that Miss Joy Mmesoma Ejikeme did manipulate her UTME results. This conclusion is deeply disappointing and stands in direct contravention of the values we hold dear at Innoson Vehicles, particularly those that underscore our scholarship program.

"In line with these principles and response to the confirmed findings, we have made the difficult decision to withdraw the scholarship awarded to Miss Joy Mmesoma Ejikeme. This action is a testament to our unyielding commitment to honesty, integrity, and merit-based recognition.  

"We acknowledge that this development is regrettable, and it has undoubtedly caused dismay among those who stood by Miss Joy, including her school principal and other well-meaning supporters. However, it is crucial to maintain the integrity of our scholarship program and the values it represents.

"Innoson Vehicles remains steadfast in its mission to support deserving students, invest in the future of our education sector, and uphold the highest ethical standards. We have always been deeply committed to advancing educational excellence and upholding academic integrity through our scholarship program. We believe in rewarding exceptional students who display not just academic prowess but also embody the values of honesty, transparency, and respect for the processes that govern our educational system.

"We extend our appreciation to the public, JAMB, the Anambra State Governor’s committee, and all those who have shown understanding and support during this challenging situation. We remain committed to fostering educational excellence in Nigeria."
