‘Disability should not hinder your potentials in life’
The Managing Director of Background Check International (BCI), Kola Olugbodi, has advised Nigerians with disabilities to develop their innate potentials to fulfill purpose in life. He cautioned them not to see disability as an impediment but as a tool to forge ahead and accomplish laudable goals in life.
Olugbodi, who is the author of Through It All, a book that chronicles his challenges and problems, said he surmounted them all. Speaking during a media briefing and unveiling of his book, he urged physically challenged persons not to give up.
According to him, he had polio when he was young but resolved not to be hindered, adding that another major test of his faith was the problem of infertility, but he never wavered and is blessed with children today.
Also, six students have been shortlisted for the PZ Cussons Chemistry Challenge among the over 13,000 that competed across the different stages of the competition.
It was earlier announced that over 13,000 students registered and took part in the national CBT exam where 600 students who made the cut off were shortlisted for a controlled CBT test, in Abuja, Lagos and Port Harcourt. 30 students and nine ‘
