governor-fayose-56th-birthday-with-physically-challenged3Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti on Tuesday said persons with one disability or the other in the state, especially the literate ones are henceforth to enjoy priority attention by government.

The governor, who spoke at a ceremony to mark his 56th birthday at the Government House ground in Ado Ekiti, said he deliberately chose to mark the day with the disabled from across the 16 local governments because of his passion for the downtrodden.

He said he felt fulfilled celebrating the day with them, believing that such a development would instill hope in the hopeless.

According to him, every member of the society must be given equal opportunity to access government facilities.

He announced that disabled persons were henceforth to be included on the protocol list of government, while invitations to public functions would be extended to them through their various associations.

Fayose said the special gestures would include adequate funding of schools for the handicapped, provision of pensionable employment, offer of political appointment, as well as inclusion of reasonable number on the list of those to be paid monthly stipend under the social security programme of the state.

Earlier, Omotola Ezekiel, the Chairman of the National Association of Persons with Disabilities, Ekiti chapter, had expressed gratitude to the governor “for lifting the gates of the Government House for members of the Association.”

He disclosed that though a total of 10 disabled persons had so far been employed by the Fayose administration, more should be employed.

He said “we have more than 500 members with NCE certificate and over 1,000 below NCE
yearning for gainful employment in the state.”

    He is still better than Buhari. When Obama invites such people to the white house, it is still for the same thing, for publicity. If you don’t like Fayose, we can understand your bitterness. Obama has been shown several times eating out at eateries or going to regular coffee shops, he has been praised for his humility. Fayose has gone to bukas, he was derided for his hypocrisy. The black man will always feel inferior to bring his own down and will be the first to shout victim.

    @ Paul, you hit the nail on the head. Pull him down syndrome. The uncommon followership Gov. Fayose commands in Ekiti says otherwise to their hateful insatiable spirits. Its obvious to see he means well, publicity or otherwise, his government employs the most number of physically challenged persons in the country even more than the federal government. Nobody is perfect but its easy to see Oshoko means well.,

    Why didn’t the governor take them to a 5star hotel or a more decent banquet hall rather than using his garage? Would the governor host other high personalities in a place like that? Treat all humans the same and do not discriminate among (high personalities and physically challenged ).
