GENDER AND DISABILITY INCLUSION ADVOCACY CENTER (GADIAC) have congratulated the Disability Community on the the creation of National Commission for Persons with Disabilities (NCPWD) and it’s Governing Council after 20 years of struggle.
In a press release signed by Rabi Yusuf Gezawa, the Executive Director, the group said that President Muhammadu Buhari have broken a record, they appreciated and prayed for him.
They called on Nigerians with Disabilities to unite, abstain from all negative attitudes and comments. PWDs should live by example, PWDs are Men and Women of integrity, let them show the world that they can deliver, let them show some high level of appreciation by working together to make the commission beneficial to PWDs especially those at the grassroot who suffers the most.
“We must not forget how much and how long we have suffered to get this commission. Starting from the formulation of the bill, to the passage of the bill into Prohibition against discrimination Act (2018)” they reminded.
GADIAC urged PWDs to take responsibility , make use of this golden opportunity by showing some patriotism and passion for the work for a better result.
They also urged government not to relent in their full support to this commission by making the appropriate budgeting for the running of the commission.
