Innoson Vehicles has withdrawn the N3 million scholarship given to Joy Mmesoma Ejikeme.

This was after the Anambra committee of inquiry uncovered that her Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) result was forged.

The withdrawal was contained in a statement shared by the company’s Head of Corporate Communications & Affairs manager, Cornel Osigwe.

In the statement that has been gathering reactions on Twitter on Saturday, July 8,

Innoson said that the forgery was disappointing and goes against everything the company stands for.

A part of it read: “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.”

They said that despite many people may feel about the withdrawal, it had to be done to protect the integrity of its scholarship program.

Nigerians react:

@AjeboDanny said: “There is currently a highest scorer, can you extend the scholarship to her instead?” @comrademahmud said: “You should transfer the the 3million withdrawn scholarship from #Mmesoma to kamsi that will be fair.”@Airdropglobal5 said: “Good move. You should instead award it to the other Anambra girl that did exceptionally well in JAMB and her result is authentic.” @drackfel said: Wrong move. She’s still a kid and I honestly don’t believe she did that forgery. She must have confessed under duress. Would be shameful of you to withdraw the scholarship from the kid. @YusufNasir_Ahmd said: “Henceforth, and very important, Innoson should always verify any claim before Awarding scholarship to anyone.” @AimThaMachine_ said: “The highest score person is also from Anambra State. Give that person the scholarship. Let’s reward the real deal.”
