This is the story of a nine-year-old primary five pupil of Carol School in Lagos, Siju Olawepo, who is able to tell the day of the week of any year without checking the calendar.
It will not be out of place to say Siju is a genius and a boy who definitely will do great things. The boy was discovered by an ICT teacher in the school, and he is on his way to becoming a star.
His parents did not know he had this rare talent until the ICT teacher noticed it in him. Since Siju's discovery, his school has set up a special curriculum for him, allowing him to work at his own pace.
Speaking of Siju's talent, the school proprietress, Carol Akintunji, said: "The rate of reasoning, you cannot fathom it. All the dates are listed for him, he didn't miss out any."
Also speaking about Siju's rare talent, head, Carol School, Bola Adeaga, said: "It was shocking, and we kept drilling him. And we were just looking at him - I couldn't comprehend it. I had to pick up my phone to call the parents to say 'wow do you know you have an angel?' And they were quite amazed too, they didn't know."
