Man who lost ability to walk as teenager achieves great feat, called to bar

- A man has achieved his life's dream of becoming a lawyer despite the discomforts that come with his physical disability

- Bagging his first degree in 2005, the man went further and applied for his LLB despite being denied admission twice

- After getting in, the physically-challenged man did well in school, passed his law exams, and was called to bar on Thursday, December 17

A man has triumphed over the physical disability that should have marred his dream. His confinement to a wheelchair all started when he was a teenager of 17 years old.

In an account shared by a Facebook user, Nene Addo Kweitsu, the man came down with an ailment as a child which affected his mobility.

With a strong will to rise above his circumstances, he trudged on and got his degree from the University of Ghana in 2005.

After two failed attempts to become a lawyer at the same university, he was eventually accepted in 2014. With his LLB degree, he enrolled at the Ghana School of Law.
