A former street hawker, Jeremiah Ekuma is set to return to school as the Ebonyi State University reinstated his admission to study law.
In a recent interview with BBC Pidgin, Jeremiah revealed that he dropped out of varsity due to a lack of funds to continue his education.
Ekuma’s story changed after he was caught on camera passing money to the occupants of a prison bus in Lagos in January.
This viral video caught the attention of billionaire businessman, Obi Cubana who pledged to sponsor his education. Also, a friend of Obi Cubana placed Jeremiah on an N100,000 monthly salary.
On his official Instagram handle, Ekuma said he had met with the officials of the school and his admission had been reinstated.
He said, “My admission at EBSU has been reinstated, so I will be resuming back to school soon.”
