Ugwu reportedly dropped out of school two years ago to hustle in the streets and make ends meet.

Pure water hawker created a study group

However, an X user @winexviv who shared the story via the platform revealed that he had convinced the young boy to join his JAMB prep program.

He promised the boy that he would be given a scholarship if he got above 300 in the 2024 UTME.

The smart boy rose up to the challenge and got an aggregate of 309 after taking his studies seriously.

Speaking on his exam success, Ugwu told Winexviv that he created a study group for serious minded students who wanted to score above 300.

These science students who agreed to be part of the group also performed well in the 2024 UTME.

Winexviv wrote:

“Interestingly some of the students who did well in science said that Chibuzo usually stays back to explain further to them what was taught in class before he leaves for the day to sell pure water.

“He also created a study group with his classmates where he coaches them on weekends, and all of them scored really high. The group comprised of those who were desperately determined to score above 300 and get the scholarship. They became close friends and studied together always.”
