Coalition Commends NDIC’s Compliance With Disability Prohibition Act

The Coalition of Persons Living with Disabilities in Nigeria (CPLWDN) has lauded the Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation (NDIC) for complying with the Disability Prohibition Act.

It urged the National Commission for Persons With Disability to publicly recognise NDIC as that would serve as a reminder to other agencies to also follow suit.

The coalition made the commendation during a press conference led by its national coordinator, Mallam Mohammed Musa Zaria and national secretary Comrade David Olarewaju yesterday in Abuja while congratulating the managing director/chief executive officer of NDIC, Mr Bello Hassan, on his recent appointment as vice chairperson of the International Association of Deposit Insurers, African Regional Committee (IADI-ARC).

Zaria said, “Our coalition, consisting of over 45 groups of different clusters of our community from the Six Geopolitical Zones of the country, has come together to collectively make our voice heard and commend Nigerians for the support given to our members and organisation.

“We express our sincere gratitude to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for recognising Mr. Hassan’s exceptional performance and retaining him in his position as the head of NDIC. NDIC under his tenure has restored the confidence of Nigerians in the banking sector leading to investor confidence and increase in the volume of banking transactions daily.

“Most importantly, the NDIC stands out as the sole organisation in Nigeria that continues to focus on inclusiveness, aligning perfectly with the renewed hope agenda of the present administration. In celebrating his successes, we believe that he will do more to change the perception and attitude of most Nigerians towards people with disabilities.”
