Persons With Disabilities (PWDs) have applauded President Muhammadu Buhari over his recent appointment of one them as as a Senior Special Adviser on Disability Matters, soliciting for more of such appointments into the Federal Executive Council, Commissions, boards and other parastatals of government.
The group made the appeal on Tuesday in Abuja during the inauguration/unveiling ceremony of Hon. Altine Shehu Kajiji as the General Manager, Federal Civil Service Staff with Disabilities Multi-purpose Cooperative Society Limited.
The body described the step as a demonstration of his disposition towards an all-inclusive government, encouraging state governors to borrow a leaf from the president.
The New General Manager, who is replacing Alhaji Abdul-Rauf Illisasu who was removed over controversial circumstances, pledged to seek divine guidance in charting the best direction for the society particularly their welfare, empowerment and firm establishment of their relevance both within and outside Nigeria.
Kajiji, an ex-lawmaker, assured that his administration would engage a robust interaction that would midwife a comprehensive programme of action for the society which would include sports, health and other strategic areas of daily life.
