People Do Not Give Me Work Because Of My Face
Musa Modu is one of those people that have suffered rejection because of what happened to him when he was a kid. He narrated his ordeal while he was speaking to BBC pidgin in an interview.
For people with disabilities, finding a job is hard and finding a full-time job is harder.
A job can be a source of great fulfillment in every person’s life, but finding a job is often a problem for many Ghanians.
Another thing that’s making it difficult for people with disabilities to get jobs has to do with having limited mobility.
I tried to work when I came to Lagos, but because of my illness, people do not allow me to work with them. Even when my friend helps me find employment, before I expose myself to the employer and see my face, I won’t let myself work for it. They may not believe I can do the work, but I think I can do any work, Musa Modu said. I don’t know.
Musa Modu wasn’t such born. His parents worked in a farm when he was a child to provide food to his family. He came from Borne, but was looking for greener weeds in the state of Lagos for over eight years.
