A 29-year-old barrister identified as Ezinkuma Allagoa has been suffering from cerebral palsy since his childhood.
Cerebral palsy (CP), according to Healthline, refers to a group of disorders that affect muscle movement and coordination. In many cases, cerebral palsy also affects vision, hearing, and sensation.
Despite the challenge, Allagoa wanted to be a lawyer and his parents were supportive and helped him achieve his dreams.
Allagoa said he failed the exams twice but was able to pass the third time after being motivated by his parents who refused to watch him give up.
A video shared by BBC Pidgin shows the barrister sharing his story with his proud parents beside him.

According to Allagoa, his parents have been a source of strength and motivation to him.
He said he’s been down a couple of times but they always have a way of restoring hope and making him feel great.
Allogoa recounted how he almost gave up after failing his last bar exams, but his parents encouraged him.
