Madam Otiko Djaba noted that “This is to shine spotlight on persons with disabilities and appreciate them for people to know that they are able to perform activities just us others will do. For me, person with disabilities are very brilliant“.
The latest benevolent project by the Former Gender, Children and Social Protection Minister to reach out to persons with disabilities is in line with the fact that they are endowed with talents that must be discovered and developed for benefits so they do not become burdens on society.
