In another illustration of disability is not inability, a Ghanaian man who lost his limbs after contracting an undisclosed illness while he was just 17-yrs, has been called to the bar after graduating from the law school recently.
The touching message which was shared on Facebook by one Nene Addo Kweitsu, detailed the incredible grass to grace tale (seems more like it) and how the unnamed man surmounted all obstacles to become a certified lawyer now.
The full text as we sighted on Facebook reads,
“From Nima to the Law School.
An example of determination and perseverance. Born and bread in Nima without any physical disability, he contracted a disease at about age 17 and lost the ability to use his legs which resulted in him being confined to a wheelchair.
Determined to add value to himself, he braved all odds and obtained a degree from the University of Ghana in 2005.
In his quest to be a lawyer he attempted on two occasions, without success, to acquire his LLB from the UG.
Undaunted by the failure, he applied and was successful to do his LLB at Central University from 2014 to 2017.
Armed with his LLB degree, he took the 2018 “Makola entrance exams” for the first time and was successful, thereby gainining admission to the Ghana School of Law to do the 2-year professional course.
His efforts was crowned with success last Thursday, 17th December, 2020, when he was called to Bar.
But behind this ‘successful man’ there is no woman ! He is single!!!”
