My Encounter With A Deaf Keke Napep, Tricycle Rider In Anambra – Dr Chisom
Feb 2nd, 2016 – My Encounter With A Deaf Keke Napep, Tricycle Rider In Anambra
Anambra based medical doctor, Dr Chisom took to her Official IG page @ noraswift90 yesterday to share her encounter with a deaf napep (tricycle) rider while heading to work.
“Thought i should share this, on my way to the hospital I flagged him down didn’t bother talking to him or asking him for the price because we all know they have a fixed price for those plying the straight road, to my amazement he turned and showed me the notice. Mehn i was dumb founded, i quickly read through it and relaxed. I got to my destination and tapped him and he stopped….#wecanmakeit #youcanmakeit #youdonthaveanyexcuse #Godblessus #GodblessNigeria”
If a deaf man can hustle like, those of us who can hear have no excuse.
This should motivate someone to action today.
Meanwhile, many are arguing on the social media that the man is taking a big risk.

Yes, a deaf man hustling is commendable, but I think this guy is in the wrong kind of business. For starters, how can he interface with other motorists when they blare their horns?

Yes! He is taking a BIG risk. I commend his fighting spirit. If a few more Nigeians are like him, the streets would have been depopulated of beggars. But he should have thought of a safer endevour and not to imperil not only his life but also the lives of all the people that patronise him.
Driving is not something to play trifle with. Advanced countries know better. Therefore they have stringent procedures for scrutinising whoever is given the driving license. It is here in Nigeria that the license is given without acertaining the physical staminar and mental stability of people. That is so bad.
Hearing and sight are most essential to any man at the steering wheel. They are like the two limbs that bear the whole weight of the human body. You can’t take the one and discard the other. It once fell on a time that a particular incident nearly cost a driver his life. This driver was using his earphone with music on. He was about to cross a railway line when he suddenly saw th train only feets from. The train had been honking its horn but how could the driver hear? And the temporally barricade was not working. A particular man was standing with a red flag to caution motorists about the approaching train. But this driver did not see it.
But the moment he saw the train just feets fron his car, he impulsively depressed his gas pedal to the floor and the car zoomed off like hell. Guess what? He lost control and crashed into a nearby store. Thanks be to God that no life was lost; only property was damaged.
Back to the keke man, he should be encouraged by discouraging him from driving.

Yes the man is taking a big risk. There are so many reckless drivers on our roads. When they blast their motor horn will he know, or does he need some one to tap him when there is such.

No food for a lazy man. I love the hardwork spirit in him

This should motivate those lazy bones looking for who to kidnap or rob all in the name of unemployment. There is always a good take home for a man that woke up in the morning and go out to hustle, I mean good job. I love this man, because of this, God will surely open his way. This is inspiring indeed.

Motivating but I must say very dangerous!
A deaf person should not be allowed to drive in public, can cause road traffic accidents and endanger his life and that of other road users!
Am not hating in any way!
People overcoming the disabilities is a recommended and applaudable thing but we need to do it within a safe limits!
Before the blind will also be encouraged to drive!
Only in Nigeria
