Despite the fact that he has a degree in economics, he has been unable to get employment because of the stigma surrounding his disability.
Help me, governor
“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...
He told the governor in the letter:
I am compelled to contact you through this media to come to my aide by way an immediate appointment as a bail out of complacency, just so that I can assume a responsible citizen and be a good father despite my condition.”
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.

Another frustrated graduate took to the street
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a Nigerian lady, Egbohaghe Victoria, took the bull by the horn and showed that she is not going to be giving up anytime soon.
On Tuesday, February 9, Victoria took to the street of Abuja with cardboard that reads, "Please I need a job".
On the placard, she spelt out her qualification, saying she has a BSc in international relations. Underneath that is her email. Atop the cardboard is a plea that she really needs a job.
Nigerians were amazed by the bold move as they reposted her photo and made sure it went viral across many social media platforms.
