Innoson Vehicles has withdrawn the scholarship awarded to Joy Mmesoma Ejikeme.
This followed the findings by the Anambra committee of inquiry which revealed that Mmesoma faked her Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) result.
The panel released its findings on Friday, stating that Mmesoma admitted that she manipulated her scores.
In a statement issued on Saturday, Head of Corporate Communications, Innoson, Cornel Osigwe, said the company made the “difficult decision” to withdraw the scholarship “in response to the confirmed findings”.
“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.
“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.
“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.
