Abraham, so full of life, stated that a reverend father had taken him in after the demise of his mother and eventually he acquired the skill to make shoes in his JSS 3.

According to the former paralympian, he now gets orders for his shoes from Ghana, Nigeria and even United Kingdom.

Aside from expanding his business, the hardworking man nurses plans of teaching other physically challenged persons like him how to make shoes as he revealed that he had acquired the skill for free.
