The minister used the occasion to reaffirm the commitment of the FCT Administration (FCTA) in the empowerment of persons living with disabilities to ensure that they are not only self-reliant but employers of labour.

Dr Ramatu who stated this at the Old Parade Ground, Garki, Abuja, revealed that the administration had commenced profiling of persons living with disabilities for training in skills acquisition programmes in line with one of the core mandates of the Social Development Secretariat of the FCTA.
