Time to appoint a disabled person as minister – Albino Foundation president tells Tinubu



Jake Epelle, the CEO of The Albino Foundation (TAF Africa), has urged President Bola Tinubu to prove his government is really an inclusive one by appointing a person with disability  as minister.


Epelle said there can’t be peace without looking at the issue of inclusivity.

“For too long, there has been non-participation of persons with disability in the cabinet. This is the right time and if this president wants to make a mark, this is the right time to give the community of persons with disability at least one minister.” Epelle told Channels Television.

“I don’t care if it’s the minister of state or the main minister, we need to sit at the Federal Executive Council and make decisions for the betterment of this country,” Epelle said.

He also urged state governors to appoint persons with disability as commissioners, saying that they are tired of being appointed only as Special Assistants.
