A 16-year-old boy identified as Uchegbu Obinna John-Paul is being celebrated online for his stellar academic performance.
An Imo-based On Air Personality, Pope Saviola Godwyn, took to his social media page to reveal that Uchegbu scored 9 A’s in WAEC and recorded 331 in JAMB.
He celebrated the boy who happens to be his mentee, for acing his 2022 West African Examinations Council (WAEC) exams and Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) exams
Saviola, in a post on Facebook, heaped praises on the Whizkid while sharing photos of his results and how he prepared for the exams.
He called on social media users to join him in celebrating the Imo indigene who basically turned his room into a blackboard.
The OAP said Uchegbu’s results were expected owing to the excellence he had demonstrated while under his tutelage and mentorship which dates back to when the smart kid was in JSS1.
In his words
“The results were quite expected considering the times we’ve spent together assiduously working towards achieving those results “He loves reading, he even got better than me because I love reading and I’m a prolific writer who always aim to gain knowledge.
“Obinna reads a lot and ahead too, he started reading Biology textbooks for senior secondary school when he was in Jss 2. I could remember him turning his room door to blackboard where he teaches his imaginary friends Biology.
“He wakes up to read at night and is quite jovial too always wanting to know more.” Saviola added: He’s very decisive about beating records in the family and beyond including that of his father who is a renowned bank auditor.
“I started mentoring him when he was in JSS 1 first by being his friend and brother and a trusted confidante. Helping with his dad to day struggles as it’s not everything teenagers will discuss with their parents. I served as an academic tutor for him.
“I served as a career counselor to him, helping him to brainstorm career possibilities, define career goals and establish action plans to reach those goals. I was and still I’m always in his corner bolstering his self-esteem. Making sure he sees himself as a champion. Recognising and celebrating his successes and working on the failures.
“I helped in making him a better leader by teaching him to relate to different kinds of people. Helped him develop strong communication skills so he can handle any situation. “Always made sure he has data and airtime for research and study.”
