Help me, governor
According to National Daily, he said:
“Due to my condition and the stigma attached to it, some employers believe I'm not employable. I have only been surviving on family support. To God be the glory, I have been able to write perfectly with my left hand.”
The man said he was moved to reach out to the governor in such a way because he has in so many instances learnt about his passion for helping the less privileged.
