“I Was Not Like This Before”: Physically Challenged Man who Repairs Bicycles Shares His Story With BBC



A Nigerian man identified as Nsidibe Sunday Jacob has inspired people after telling his life story.

Although not born disabled, Nsidibe however felt a strong weakness in the body at a tender age which subsequently led to his legs being disabled.

The middle-aged man said he was sitting with his mother when he noticed that he could no longer control his legs.

Against all odds

However, despite his condition, Nsidibe learnt a craft and has been successful in it.

The young man repairs bicycles, wheelchairs and tricycles because he doesn’t fancy the idea of begging for help.

In an interview with BBC, Nsidibe revealed that he often rejects money from people who think his condition makes him less of who he is.

“Wen I waka for road and any body come give me money I go tell di pesin thank you but I no go collect di money.

“Dis na becos I get wetin I dey do. My hope evri time na say God go provide wetin I go chop. No be for me to dey go beg.

“Pipo dey count phisycally challenged pipo as beggers na why me wan count my sef comot from dat category”, he said in vernarcular.
