- Disability is not inability, a Nigerian family man has demonstrated that he is capable of a great many things
- The man identified as Abraham Lucky Onoja is crippled on both feet but has braved his physical challenges
- He feeds his family from the sales he makes from selling nice footwears he created himself
Instead of resorting to seeking alms in corners of the streets or public places, a crippled man has confronted his physical challenge with strong resolution.
The Nigerian man identified as Abraham Lucky Onoja, in a post shared on Linkedln by Perci Mensah, showed remarkable creative talents despite not being with the use of his legs.
According to Perci Mensah, Abraham makes the shoes and earns a living he uses in catering for his family from it.
Mensah sought the support and encouragement of well-meaning folks to help determined people like Abraham survive.
Mensah's post reads:
"Disability isn't inability.
"The man in the pictures below is by name Abrahamlucky Onoja, a Nigerian family man who isn't allowing disability to stop him from creativity, and fending for his family. There are more like him in the world and they need our support, encouragement and care to keep their lives going."
Reacting, a Linkedln user Eric Nyikwagh congratulated and hailed the crippled man for striving to make a living in the face of his challenges.
"Succeeding amidst challenges. Congratulations Mr Onoja."
Bode Akinmodun, on the other hand thought:
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za earlier reported that BI Phakathi is at it again and has done another good deed and made a huge difference in a families life.
He noticed a family walking on the road, they were pushing their son Jared, he is unable to talk and confined to a wheelchair.
They were on their way to a friend to ask for help, they needed more adult nappies for their son.
Phakathi told the family to wait for him and he would be back and what happened next was truly amazing.
Not only did he buy them nappies but he was able to get Jared a brand new wheelchair, something that would make a huge difference in the life of the family.
