Rally Round Governor Yahaya Bello
The Executive Secretary (ES) of the Kogi State Office for Disability Affairs, Barr. Zacheus Michael, popularly called 501 has called on People Living With Disabilities (PLWDs) to rally round Governor Yahaya Bello in his quest to become the Nation’s President in 2023.
Love for PLWDs Unparalleled
In a statement issued in Lokoja, 501 noted that Bello’s love for the PLWDs was unparalleled and he, therefore, deserved to be supported to become the President so that he could do more for them.
Surpassed Employment Quota
The ES pointed out that Bello had yearly surpassed the employment quota for the PLWDs, adding that his efforts on their welfare and wellbeing were well documented.
Carry Everyone Along
“Bello has shown over a period of six years that if given the chance to become the President in 2023, he will carry everyone along, including the disabled, because he believes there is ability in disabilities,” he stated.
Mobilisation of the PLWDs
The lawyer said he had begun mobilization of the PLWDs across the country towards supporting Bello’s presidential aspiration, and expressed satisfaction with the acceptance of the Governor across the country.
Reduction of Street Begging
He urged Nigerians to cultivate habits that would lead to the reduction of street begging and unemployment among the PLWDs through skills development, describing them as special people with passion for the development of the country.
Sense of Belonging
He called on Government at all levels to give the PLWDs a sense of belonging in appointments and employment opportunities.
