Ela Ametor, a Ghanaian Uber driver who is able to work despite having a physical challenge has raised many eyebrows with a demonstration of how he goes about his daily duties.
The video that was taken during an interview with Citi TV's Caleb Kudah also saw Ela reveal that he was born normal until one eventful day when he was roofing a house as a carpenter.
According to the driver, he accidentally got electrocuted while on top of the two-storey building and fell heavily to the ground as a result.
"My family has been extremely helpful but the company I was working for decided to abandon me completely. As a Christian, I was hopeful that one day I would be able to walk again but it never happened," the Uber driver added.
