Nigerian Bitcoin expert, Gaius Chibueze, has made a scholarship offer to Mmesoma Ejikeme, who is at the centre of a UTME result controversy.
He indicated interest in sponsoring the 17-year-old student through his company, to study in any country of her choice between the United States, Canada or the United Kingdom.
The founder of Tatcoin, made the pledge via his official Twitter account on Monday, 3rd of July.
This comes as JAMB maintained its claim that the UTME result being paraded by Miss Ejikeme Mmesoma is ‘patently fake.’
In a statement by JAMB Acting Director, Public Affairs and Protocol, Dr Fabian Benjamin, on Tuesday, the exam body barred the candidate from sitting for its examination for the next three years.
Chibueze urged JAMB, to desist from attempts to malign Mmesoma’s name as it will also be viewed as an attack on her race.
The Bitcoin guru said his firm will work towards helping her to secure admission and her education will be fully funded up till Master’s degree level.
He wrote; “I and our company @VoiceOfTheEast are ready to offer Miss Joy Mmesoma a 100% scholarship to study in the UK, CANADA or the UNITED states of 🇺🇸 America.
Our team will work with her to get admission From any university of her choice in any of the above 3 countries. We will take 100% charge of her Fees and upkeep until her masters level.
@lota_nna, kindly get in touch with her and her family! We are calling on @JAMBHQ to desist from such unprofessional behavior. This is not just an attack on her person but the entire Igbo race!”
