Inspirational! 27 Years Old Destitute Scores Highest Make In JAMB Post-UTME

He was once a wheelbarrow pusher, bus conductor and tout. His shelter was under the bridge. Education for him seemed far-fetched, Uche Okwuoha, now a Law student at the Obafemi Awolowo University narrates how his life began to take a meaningful shape, Motunrayo Aboderin writes

Uche Okwuoha, an indigene of Imo State, scored the highest mark in the Obafemi Awolowo post Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination in the 2010/2011 academic session.

He had the highest score of 320 (out of 400) and he is presently a Law student in the institution’s Faculty of Law.

But Okwuoha’s journey to stardom was one filled with pain and hardship. The 27-year-old young man who was once a street boy said at the time he was leaving his secondary school at Okigwe, Imo State, his intention was to gain admission to any university, join a cult group and kill as many people as he could.

Now, Okwuoha, a year-two Law student, said he is a changed man. In his words, “Life has dealt with me; the only thing left in me is hope for a brighter tomorrow.”

Morale of the gist! Never allow your current condition determine your future!
