Jigan Babaoja Shares Positive Treatment as a Disabled Person in America

Nollywood actor, Jigan Babaoja spoke low of Nigeria as he described the real advantage of being disabled in another man’s world, America.

He shared a video of a woman pushing him in a wheelchair upon his arrival in the United States, as he was offered the option of using a wheelchair due to his leg condition.

He remarked that the Nigerian mentality of rejecting pity still lingers in his mind. In contrast, during his time in America, he has never seen a disabled person like himself walking alone without assistance.

In his words: “The real advantage of disability in another part of the world 🌎, since I have been traveling up and down , they gave me option of getting a wheelchair cos of my leg, but Nigeria mentality of not wanting anyone to pity me hasn’t left my head ! Since I have been going around in the USA 🇺🇸 I have never see anyone like me walking by themself without someone pushing them ! But if na that country instead make them carry me na wetin dey my pocket dem go want collect !!!! Eni se gbangban tirintigbaaaaa if I enter naija if una no offer my wheelchair 🦼 epe lema gba ! This simple means I’m actually a special being ! Touch down chicago 🇺🇸🇺🇸. Make I go apply for SSI jeje”
