President Muhammadu Buhari has appointed a visually impaired man, Dr Samuel Inalegwu Ode Ankeli, as his Senior Special Assistant.
Ankeli  would be responsible for Buhari’s dealings with persons living with disability, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu said in a statement yesterday.
Shehu said Ankeli had headed the Directorate of Persons With Disability at the Buhari/Osinbajo APC Presidential Campaign Headquarters, “the first of any such department in a political party in Nigeria.”
The presidential spokesman said Ankeli had also led a team that successfully mobilised over 24 million disabled persons in Nigeria to support Buhari and Osinbajo during the 2015 presidential election campaign.
Shehu stated: “Dr Ankeli hails from Benue State. He went to school in Giwa, near Zaria and Kaduna before reading veterinary medicine at the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria.
“He leads a very active religious and sporting life. He is married and has children.”
