Part of the news reads:

Ekene Franklin Ezeunala is the highest scoring candidate in the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

With a total mark of 347 out of 400, Ekene scored higher than the One million, eight hundred and eighty-six thousand, five hundred and seven (1,886,507) other candidates with whom he registered for the examination.

He did not attend a school that is blessed with a state-of-the-art library, air-conditioned classrooms, heavily equipped science laboratory, lush green playing fields, generally plush ambience, or that is sited in an upscale neighbourhood.He is also not chauffer-driven to and from school with lunch packs laced with assorted beverages and confectionaries.

He repeats the exercise on his way back. But all these imperfect conditions and challenges did not stop him from excelling in the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), organised by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) where he beat over one million others to emerge the candidate with the best score.
