- Disability is not inability, a Nigerian family man has demonstrated
- 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."

"Succeeding amidst challenges. Congratulations Mr Onoja."
Bode Akinmodun, on the other hand thought:
Meanwhile, it was earlier reported about the inspiring story of a crippled man that makes shoes in Benue as an occupation.
The disabled shoemaker got the opportunity to showcase his products to a large crowd at the ESLF organized 1st Benue Youth Entrepreneurship Summit and it was absolutely inspiring.
The wife of the governor of Benue state, Dr. Mrs. Eunice Ortom who was the convener of the summit and the founder of the Eunice Spring of Life Foundation promised to do her bit in making sure Aondofa's business is improved to a reasonable standard.
