Who is Debola Daniel?

Debola is the youngest of four children by ex-Ogun State governor, Gbenga Daniel and Yeye Olufunke Daniel. His siblings are Olurotimi and, twins Taiwo and Kehinde.

He has being confined to a wheelchair since aged five after being diagnosed with a rare condition – paraplegia. The Mechanical Engineering graduate from UCL once gave an insight into his condition;

“I was born into a very comfortable home, with both amazing parents and without a disability. However, when I turned 5, I was diagnosed with paraplegia- a rare condition with no medical clarity. 

I became confined to a wheelchair. Growing up in Nigeria, I unconsciously associated disability to poverty and crime due to amputated beggars on the streets mostly as a result of Sharia Law practiced in the North. 

This was the general opinion of most Nigerians in my social circle as a child. Having myself become physically challenged, I was exposed to the stigma and assumptions that came with being ‘disabled’.

All of a sudden, I was looked at with pity, with judgement and sometimes with resentment by my fellow countrymen. As I became an adult, I began to realise that the onus was on me to make something of myself and create my life and future the way I envision it. My future was, and would always be in my own hands.”
