MEET FERDINAND: The Chess Champion won’t be deterred
Ferdinand is a young chap in the Makoko slum with a unique ability. They bullied him because of his unique ability, which some people will say it’s a defect.
He has spastic cerebral palsy, a developmental disorder caused by damage to the brain which could make simple tasks challenging for those affected.
Despite this, Ferdinand, who was spotted by Tunde Onakayo and his team, trained him on Chess for a few days and he blew their mind away with his wonderful ability to recognise and play some unique patterns.
After two weeks, a competition was set up to see their level and capabilities. There and then, the unique Ferdinand emerged as the champion!
