Blind Man Gets Automatic Job Offer In Kano

Ibrahim Ismail, Kano 

Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has directed that Dahiru Abdulhameed, a blind teacher who has been teaching voluntarily in many schools in Kano State, be given automatic employment.

An in-depth interview with Dahiru, who stated that when he successfully completed his NCE programme, Professor Abdallah Uba Adamu called him and gave him a scholarship to go to National Open University Abuja for his Degree.

When he finished the course and did not secure a job, he decided to be teaching voluntarily in some schools. One of the media did a follow-up report on him, which, again, drew the attention of Professor Uba Adamu, who sent for him and bought him a new house where he lives with his mother.

Recently he has attracted the attention of Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, who sent for him and directed the Kano State Commissioner of Education to employ him and post him to Tudun Maliki Special Education School.

The Governor described Dahiru Abdulhameed as a role model, for accepting to teach voluntarily, adding that even though he is blind, it did not stop him from achieving his goal in life.

Abdulhameed thanked the Governor, and that of media house most importantly, Professor Abdullah Uba.
