45-year-old Yahuza Muhammadu is a man who has defied the odds that physically challenged 'foreigners' only survived by begging others for money to survive.
He is a man who lost both his of legs at the age of three, shortly after an ailment his mother wrongly diagnosed as malaria for a week.
He is a migrant from Niger, who chose to migrate from his home nation to find means to fend for himself because he couldn’t fit in to work as a farmer, as that was the predominant occupation there.
Yahuzu disclosed that he currently lived at Madina alongside people with disabilities just like him, who begged daily for money to feed themselves.
He added that he never begged anyone to feed because he doesn’t think his disability reduces him to a beggar, adding that he is no different from anyone else working hard to make a decent living.
He believes that everything is about a positive mindset, a will, drive and that with Allah anything and everything is possible.
According to Yahuza he opted to sell washing powder because it was not a perishable product
“I decided to sell OMO because of its nonperishable nature and the fact that it is easier to store,” he said.
He mostly moves about selling when cars are in traffic waiting on the traffic lights to move.
Yahuza said some of the people who buy his washing powder are not people who really need it; most of them buy it to appreciate how hard he is pushing through his adversity to earn a living.
Yahuzu revealed that aside from the money he makes from what he sells, he always gets extra from people who tip him out of sheer admiration and pity.
He sends money home to his family every two to three months, during Ramadan, Eid’ ul Adha and Eid ul Fitr.
The oldest of his children, Yusif is in a higher institution in Niger, with the others in English and Arabic institutions. He sends money back home to support their education.
What Yahuza desires most here in Ghana is to acquire for himself a permanent National Identification Card.
Yahuzu is very respected and admired for his will to look past his disability and make a decent living for himself and his family.
