Introducing the Newly Appointed SSA on Persons Living With Disability: Adenike Oyetunde ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ



Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has appointed Adenike Oyetunde as the Senior Special Assistant on Persons Living With Disability. Adenike is a media personality and gratitude coach. Sheโ€™s an amputee and disability rights advocate.

“The Lagos State Head of Service, Mr Hakeem Muri-Okunola, said the appointment of Adenike Dasola Oyetunde as the Senior Special Assistant to Mr Governor on Persons Living with Disabilities (PLWDs), stems from the confidence in her capabilities and demonstrated commitment to the rights and well-being of PLWDs”, said the statement published on the official Instagram page of the Lagos State Government.

Adenike is the founder ofย Amputees Unitedย which she launched early 2017 to provide support for amputees. The initiative is creating a community where amputees can hold hands with others who have the same experience and get the needed support to go through the challenges of the (new) reality.

She completed her studies and bagged her law degree; she worked as an OAP with Nigerian Info Fm andย is the convener ofย โ€œGratitude Jar Challengeโ€, where people are encouraged to keep a jar where they write about life experiences they are grateful for.

Adenike has shared her story so many times on different platforms to serve as an inspiration to many others. We remember when she launched Amputees United โ€“ an initiative to provide support for amputees, when she was named amongst YNaija/Leading Ladies Africaโ€™s 100 Most Inspiring Women in Nigeria (2017), when she shared her story on surviving cancer on โ€œSeriously Speakingโ€œ, featured in our WCW series, published her memoir โ€˜Adรฉnรฌkรฉ: Your Story, Your Movie, His Gloryโ€™, and recently got married to the love of her life, Lawal Sherif.

Congratulations, Adenike!
