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.

words, “Life has dealt with me; the only thing left in me is hope for a
brighter tomorrow.”
