Anambra state born master Tagbubo Chukwu, was today displayed to the admiration of the general public at the ongoing Anambra state first international week for the Deaf program holding at Awka.
Tagbubo, who built a locally made TIPPER TRUCK and drove it all the way from onitsha to Awka the venue for the DEAF crafts exhibition, explained during an interview with the SA to the governor on sign language communication, Joseph Sunny Collins,that he graduated from the special school for the Deaf, Onitsha 2 years ago ,and he had started to construct the tipper about a year ago. He claimed he had had no training from anybody; but that his own instincts were his trainers .
The Executive Governor of Anambra state, Chief Willie Obiano, represented by the SSA on disablity matters, Barr. Chuks Ezewuzie, was profoundly astonished by this level of ingenuity as he sat inside the TIPPER.
He promised that the State Government will do all it can to assist the development of such rare skills.
Tagbubo is seeking to improve his engineering skills to an advanced level and seeks support to achieve his dream. However, this goes to further buttress our advocacy for inclusiveness and a culture that appreciates that there’s ability in disablity.
