ALDIN Applauds President Muhammadu Buhari

ALDIN Applauds President Muhammadu Buhari on the Take-Off of the Disability Commission

The Association of Lawyers with Disabilities in Nigeria (ALDIN) lauds the President, Muhammadu Buhari, for setting up the governing council of the National Commission for Persons with Disabilities (NCPWD).

The good news followed the announcement by the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Farouq, on the take-off of the Commission.

It is worthy of note that ALDIN has continually engaged the Presidency and the relevant Ministries on the necessity of the constitution of the Commission.

The said engagement culminated into letters of specific demand dispatched to the said Ministries and the Presidency on the 10th day of August 2020.

The efforts yielded almost immediate result as on August 24, 2020, the Presidency constituted the governing council of the NCPWD. We are indeed impressed by the level of responsiveness shown by the Presidency in constituting the Commission.

Also, the ALDIN heartily congratulates all the members of the governing council on their well-deserved appointments into the helm of affairs of the Commission.

The Association promise to bring its wealth of know-how, and abundant human/legal resources to bear in support of the mandate of the Commission.
