However, Tochukwu received help when his case reached Alex Onyia, an education promoter passionate about the future of young people.

Alex has promised to clear Tochukwu's school fees so he can complete his studies in medical school.

Alex wrote:

"His brother has been trying to get my attention for several weeks and today I had to verify all his claims and they are very true. I will clear the schools fees to enable him continue, however I think medical students should be on full scholarships from the state government. We are lacking doctors seriously in Nigeria and we shouldn't let brilliant ones drop out of school because of situations life may bring to them."
