“I Still Want To Go To School” — 9 Year Old Groundnut Hawker Says

While the son of a mineworker can become
the head of a mine and a child of a farm-worker can become the president of a great nation.

In other words, for him, Education is for all regardless of sex, race and background.

But for 9 years old Sunday Nwaeke such statements are fairly tales and holds no water.

Sunday Nwaeke, locally known within the
premises of Federal Polytechnic, Oko,
Anambra state, as groundnut boy or in Igbo
"Nwa granut" was born in Ebonyi state in

He was a primary 2 pupil of
Community Primary School Iza, Ebonyi state.

In 2016 he moved to Anambra State, having
dropped out of school, and now live with
his mother's sister who deals on cooked groundnuts.

He hawks groundnut inside and within the
premises of Federal Polytechnic Oko,Anambra State.

In a brief chat with street photographer,Benneth Nwankwo, when asked if he wish
to continue his education, he expressed
optimism in that regard but doubts its
actualization as his parents are very poor.

Sunday, according to him, has five siblings and is the third child of his parents. Both
parents are alive and lives in Iza Ebonyi
State while he resides in Nanka Anambra State with his Aunty.
