A photo serving rounds on social media captures the moment a young boy selling “pure water” was signing on the shirt of a new graduate.
The photo stirred up emotions in the hearts of Internet users as they congratulated the graduate on his humility and selflessness.
The final year student had passed his final exams and as the custom in Nigeria, was wearing a white shirt so that colleagues, friends, and loved ones could sign on it with markers as he bids farewell to the university.
It was during this process that the peddler allegedly came up to him and requested to sign on his shirt, the final year student agreed and knelt down while the young boy signed.
The photo sparked a number of reactions from social media users.

In other news, the story of Emmanuel Nworiea, a first-class graduate of Mathematics in UNN will break your heart as he had to turn to cassava farming in his village to earn a living.
Emmanuel, a first-class graduate of Mathematics, who graduated with a CGPA of 4.92 on a 5-point scale from the prestigious University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN), is currently languishing in abject poverty.
The brilliant young man disclosed that he lost his father to diabetes and hypertension in 2005, while he was in secondary school, which greatly affected his plans of furthering his studies and applying for international scholarships. In order to survive, he became a mathematics teacher for a while at the secondary school he finished from.
Despite getting the award of the Best Mathematics Olympiad teacher in Ebonyi state, he was earning a meager N12,705.40 per month.
From his earnings, he was able to save some of his N185,000 annual salaries and further his education in a polytechnic.
According to The Cable, during his one-year internship after his polytechnic education, he took other teaching jobs and saved more money till he was able to fund his university education.
Emmanuel finally gained admission to the department of mathematics, faculty of physical sciences at UNN, eight years after graduating from secondary school.
In his final year, Emmanuel won the gold medal in the university category of the 2018 national mathematics competition.
After his one-year national youth service in Enugu, his primary place of assignment retained him as a teacher and was placed on a monthly salary of N35,000 per month.
However, the Covid-19 pandemic dealt him another blow so he had to return to Ebonyi state to make a living from planting cassava.
