"I have some illness within me and health challenges. So they took me to a hospital. They injected me so from that moment I began to notice some things. My body begin to para'lyze. My leg cannot hold itself again.
"Since then I begin to notice I can't walk again, I can't stand again I can't even sit. I can't really sit without sitting with something that have arms like that. I've been going to hospital, prayers and nothing to revive it."

When it was time for primary school, Nwobodo didn't have enough money. Fortunately, a kind-hearted person offered him a wheelchair which he used till his secondary school level.

Later on, his wheelchair got spoilt and he had to depend on people who can willingly push him.

Lecturers mocked him

Nwobodo faced financial difficulty and was only able to pay for his West African Examination Council (WAEC) exams with the help of kind people who gave him money.

After securing admission, lecturers began to mock Nwobodo to know why he chose to go to a normal university instead of going to a school for the disabled.

Against all odds, Nwobodo graduated and subsequently underwent his youth service in Bauchi state.

Nwobodo desires to open a shop

According to Nwobodo, it is not easy to get a white-collar job that would be favourable to him due to his condition.

He has expressed his desire to open a shop, although he doesn't have the funds yet to establish one.
