A Nigerian lady identified as Hafsah Dauda has proven that there is ability in disability after she graduated from Ahmadu Bello University with a law degree.
Dauda, who became visually impaired at the age of two, pursued her dreams in spite of her challenges.
According to @NigeriaStories on Twitter, the young lady has been called to bar.
In other news, a physically-challenged person, Geoffrey Asadu, has re-established the fact that there is ability in disability by becoming a lawyer with a clean record of not losing any case despite practising for over two decades.
The 58-year-old lawyer said he was six when he suddenly went blind.
Asadu said he had a headache that lasted for about three days before he was rushed to the hospital.
He said: "As the headache continued, I was taken to Akulue Hospital, Nsukka, where I was administered with one drug by one medical doctor, who owned the hospital. I was given an injection by the doctor for three days.
"On the third morning, I was supposed to go to hospital but I was surprised to discover that I couldn’t see. I became totally and automatically blind. I got up that morning but couldn’t see. I groped and started shouting that I wasn’t seeing again."
The legal practitioner said he was thereafter rushed to two other hospitals but all to no avail.
He said: "We even went as far as Kano state but all to no avail. My sight couldn’t come back, till today. My father did everything he could to make me see again but it was no longer possible."
