Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection, Otiko Afisa Djaba has stated that New Patriotic Party (NPP) government will increase 3% in the Common Fund for Persons With Disabilities (PWDs) for fulfilling their needs and to make sure that they receive all the required resources for making their life easy.
According to her, every person has a hidden talent, in the same way, disable persons have intellect and abilities and if we support them we can bring that talent out.
She said this while speaking at the maiden dialogue session with PWDs in Accra. She was hopeful that persons with disabilities can also play their role in building nation.
She said, ‘I will guarantee you the dedication and support of His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the NPP administration to Persons With Disabilities. We will keep on working with you to advance the welfare and the strengthening of Persons With Disabilities (PWDs) so we have a comprehensive administration.’
She added, ‘We should always remember that there is a talent in disabilities, so we have to focus on the abilities instead of their disabilities.’
‘NPP government is committed to protecting the rights of PWDs and to promote good in them. National Council on PWDs is decentralized to the regional level for coordinating activities of the different federations.’
