This is interesting. Blessing Belonwu, a Nigerian OAP with Moments FM in Anambra, has shared the story of Mr Ofochebe Tochukwu, a blind teacher at a secondary school in the State.

According to her, the blind man has authored as many as 15 publications. Read her posts below: 

"Meet Ofochebe Tochukwu(Mr.) , a blind teacher from Adazi-Ani in Anaocha L.G.A. of Anambra state who teaches at Urban Girls Secondary school, Ekwulobia, Aguata l.g.a. Anambra state.

He is a renowned author of about 15 publications including a mathematics textbook and a novel titled 'Voice of Reasoning'.

He has been blind for over 20 years, though according to him, he had residual sight before he started teaching. As a matter of fact, he teaches Mathematics, Physics and sometimes Chemistry.

When asked how he relates with his students, he answered that he has grown to adopt the situation and his students can relate with him well in the class room.

I met him at the Google Digital marketing skills for Africa sponsored by the Anambra state ministry of education and I was inspired.

He doesn't have his sight, yet, he has been able to do all these. What of you and me? We have complete hands, complete legs and sound sight, therefore , We can do better!
