The story of a physically challenged graduate, Abraham Lucky Onoja, is quite an inspiring one as he refused to allow his disability to weigh him down, taking the challenge in his stride and decided to be a shoemaker, designing quality shoes for a living.
The man, who lives in Makurdi, Benue State but hails from Otukpa, a border town between Nasarawa and Benue states, according to his profile on his Facebook Wall, said he is also a graduate of the Benue State University.
In his Facebook wall (Abrahamlucky Onoja), Abraham said he decided to become a shoemaker after he graduated as he has always had passion for shoe making even when he was in the university.
The man, who is married and is blessed with a son, said he always moves around on his specially made wheelchair which was given to him when he was with the Benue State Sports Council, adding that he is now into shoe making full time.
He added that since he started making shoes for both adults and children, he has not regretted going into it as he has always got massive patronage, adding that he even made shoes for his clients outside the state and send the shoes to them anywhere they are in the country.
Speaking on his works, he said: "I am very grateful friends. More orders coming in, thank you for your patronage friends.
"Keep the orders coming in. I stay in Makurdi, Benue State, but I can waybill to anywhere you are."
Many people who reacted to his comments on his Facebook wall and who attested to the quality of his shoes, commended him for the high quality work he was doing, encouraging him to always aim at the sky.
Displaying an array of shoes he has made so far, the man said his physical limitation cannot stop him from attaining the height he aims to reach.
