INTERNATIONAL DAY FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES.
Theme: Building Back Better Towards An Inclusive, Accessible And Sustainable Post COVID-19 World By, For And With Persons With Disabilities.
There are so many challenges facing persons living with disabilities especially in an underdeveloped country like Nigeria that we survive by the special grace of God.
Disability is not inability as there is always ability in disability, pls see the person in us and not the physical deformity.
May I use this auspicious day marked out to highlight the plights of the disabled man and woman globally to call on the Federal/State Governments to facilitate the effective implementation of the disability law as an effective means of properly integrating the disabled into the mainstream society that ensures equal opportunities to all.
On this day , I want to extend once again my deep appreciation to my boss Distinguished Senator Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah for being the highest individual benefactor to persons living with disabilities in Anambra State and beyond.
I have also been keenly following his actions in the red chambers aimed at diligently championing moves that has the welfare of the physically challenged and the disabled as priority .
He has been the highest in terms of donation of welfare items to the disabled ranging from automatic wheel chairs in thousands as well as speech guide phones used by the blind , walking aides, clutches , Scholarships Etc
The only office holder in Anambra State that has an office of a special adviser catering to issues affecting the disabled in the state .
The National leader of a political party (the YPP ) that has the enviable record of being the only political party in Nigeria with a position in its National Working Committee for an Adviser in Charge of Disability affairs.
God bless Distinguished Senator Dr Ifeanyi Ubah.
