The Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Disability, Samuel Ankeli, says 25 million Nigerians are living with disabilities.

Ankeli made the disclosure on Thursday in Ilorin while addressing physically challenged students of the University of Ilorin during the launch of the maiden edition of  a programme titled “Ability in Disability”, organised by the students.

The presidential aide pledged to assist the university in securing hostel accommodation and special centres for its physically challenged students.

In a speech considered by many as “motivational”, Ankeli, who is also physically impaired, said the president was working hard to ensure that the rights of physically challenged persons were protected.

He said the president was keen on the Disability Act which, he said, would ensure justice and equality for those living with disabilities in the country.

According to him, it is the desire of the president that those living with disabilities are represented and are part of the social and political administration.

He said all people were born equal and urged the students to harness their abilities despite the challenges.  (NAN)
