ALDIN Lauds President Buhari on the Setting up of 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).

In a statement sent to TQM signed Yusuf A.M Iyodo, Esq, the Director, Media and Publicity of the group, they noted that 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.

The group is impressed at the level of responsiveness shown by the Presidency in constituting the Commission.

They congratulated all the members of the governing council on their well-deserved appointments into the helm of affairs of the Commission.

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