 STUDENT TESTIMONIES

My name is Olafemi Samson Bolaji. I was born into a family of three girls and I am the only boy. I graduated in Sociology from the University of Ilorin in 2002 and did my NYSC afterwards.

I got my first job with Avondale the Thistle at Apapa Lagos State as their Supervisor, seven months after I got my present job with a parastatal of the Federal Ministry of Health.

May 2006, on my way travelling to Abuja by road, between Kabba and Okenne I was attacked by armed robbers who shot at the vehicle and I was hit in the eyes. After visiting so many Eyes Specialist Hospitals in Nigeria, I was advised to go abroad for a second opinion. I went to South Africa where I had a surgery and I was able to see and could move around without a guide. I returned to Nigeria in December, 2006 and resumed back to work in January 2007. However due to environment conditions in Nigeria such as dust (among other factors), my vision began to deteriorate until I could no longer see.

I came to the Vocational Training Centre for the Blind Oshodi in 2012 where I was able to undergo special training to deal with the challenges of being visually impaired, mobility and computer training.

I have been able to resume back to my place of work as an Administrative officer after my training at VTC Oshodi. I have also written two promotional exams using the computer and I did very well. I can go to the bank and move around on my own with little or no assistance.
