Though the school suffered a bit setback when its original building was demolished in 2001, it came up strong in 2002 with a new building.

It was at the 2019 edition of the award, that the young Nigerian was recognised for discovering the new formula.

Mary Ellis, his math teacher, who also doubles as the head of the mathematics department at the Westminster Under School, said Chika discovered the new formula during his holiday assignment.

It was reported that she gave the young Nigerian boy a book, which contained several divisibility tests used to quickly work out if a figure is exactly divisible by the numbers 2 to 9, which lacked memorable test for checking divisibility by 7.
