TQM boss tasks Disability Commission appointees on performance, lauds Buhari for promise kept

The Executive Director of The Qualitative Magazine TQM, the foremost disability advocacy magazine in Nigeria, Comrade Chris Obiora Agbo has expressed his gratitude for the appointment of members of the governing council of National Disability Commission.

Speaking on Tuesday in Abuja, the Publisher thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for being a friend to persons with disabilities by listening to the agitations and kept his campaign promise of signing disability bill into law and establishment of a commission as it is enshrined in Disability law.

He used the opportunity to appreciate all those that were part of the struggle for over 20 years and he urge those appointed not to forget that this is a collective struggle so all their actions must be for collective good.

He congratulated those that were appointed and implore them to keep their doors open for those with geniue ideas and they should know that they are representing those who have suffered for years and this is the only hope for a liberation.

He implored them to get the ground running because there is a lot to catch up especially in the area of awareness creation of the Disability law and engaging of the stakeholders to understand their roles in the implementation.

“There is no time, there is a lot of work to do, it is an opportunity of a lifetime for Disability community, let’s capitalize on it. Mr. President has done his part, it is now left for us to do our own part. Let it not be that we have failed ourselves” he said.

He called on states who are yet to have a disability law to do immediately and establish a commission or board to oversee the implementation.
