JAMB Result: Some People Called Me A Useless Igbo Man—Fabian Benjamin
During an interview with Channels Television, Fabian Benjamin, spokesperson of JAMB, stated that some people have said he’s a useless Igbo man, not knowing that he’s a proud TIV man. He added that they did not in any way harass Harris Mmesoma, pointing out that what they did was only reply to all her messages online. He stated that he has been the one who has been harassed, insulted, and called all sorts of names.
Benjamin stated that when she posted a picture of her JAMB score, they denied the result because they found some discrepancies in it. He added that the issue is not one of tribe because their overall best candidate is also from Anambra State.
According to him, “She’s the one that has been parading her videos and her pictures everywhere; she’s the one that is harassing herself. We’re just responding to a comment that she has made; she claimed she had 362, and we responded and said no, you don’t have this one. She did a video, and we responded, or rather, I’ve been the one that has been harassed. If you look everywhere, it is my picture and video that are being shown everywhere. People have insulted me; some people said the man is even an Igbo; he’s a useless Igbo man.
Unfortunately, I’m a very proud TIV man; I’m not an Igbo person. But in any case, even the highest scorer is from the East. So it’s not a case of tribe or whatever; we have nothing against any group; the director of IT of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board is a proud Igbo man.”
