Open letter to the Executive Governor of Lagos State.
I am Agosu Fagla Albert from Badagry local government, Lagos State.
Sir, 8, October 1991 ,I had a motor accident when going to school at the age of 5. I was then a pupil of Opebi Primary school,Allen ,Ikeja, Lagos , under the leadership of the headmastress (Mrs T. Adebiyi). I was then rushed to Omotayo private hospital , Ikeja. Then, later refered to National orthopedic hospital Igbobi, Lagos where I stayed for a year and later discharged with right hand paralyzed, up till now i can only make use of the left hand.
Sir, out of curiosity for learning despite all odds, with the support of God and well meaning Nigerians; I later proceeded to further my education from basic stage to tertiary level – where I graduated with B.sc (ed) (Economics Education) 2014 at the Lagos State University and served at Local Government and chieftaincy affair, Jos North Local Government (Plateau state) from 2014-2015, till now without a meaningful and deserving Job.
(For the) umpteenth time, due to my condition and the stigma attached to it , some employers believe am not employable . I have only been surviving on family support.
To God be the glory, I have been able to write perfectly with my left hand.
My Dear Governor sir, I have followed with passion your success stories in Lagos State and your passion for the less privileged.
I am compelled to contact you through this media to come to my aide by way an immediate appointment as a bail out of complacency, just so that I can assume a responsible citizen and be a good father despite my condition.
Thank you sir in anticipation of your compassionate consideration and God bless you abundantly.
