Last week, news broke that one Jane Ottah, 28, who was expelled by the Rivers State University of Science and Technology, in 2015, for having speech and hearing challenges, was suing the institution for damages to the tune of N20m, claiming that the damages were for the trauma, embarrassment, and emotional distress caused by her expulsion.
Now some of her lovely pictures have been released, just as her parents revealed that she wasn’t born deaf, but the sudden illness came upon her at age 6. Ottah said her ambition of reaching the highest point possible, academically, notwithstanding her disability, was frustrated by the university. The Rivers State High Court has fixed February 19 for hearing. .
Ottah, a former student at the Department of Educatinal Foundation, says notwithstanding her disability, she has a burning desire for education – a desire she pursued such that she acquired primary education, secondary education where she passed eight subjects at a sitting.
