Meet 9 years old Sunday Nwaekewho who has dropped out of school and now hawks groundnut because his parents are very poor.

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 2008. 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.
