Founder, Albino Foundation, Mr. Jake Epelle has appealed to the Ewi of Ado-Ekiti, Oba Adeyemo Adejugbe to join his voice with those championing the course of persons living with disabilities in the country.
Mr. Epelle who made the plea during a visit to the royal father in his palace said the call was important because monarchs play vital role in the growth of the society.
He explained that the physically challenged has always been neglected in the country, especially in electoral process, hence the need for concerted efforts to stop it.
Mr. Epelle noted that it became imperative for them to be carried along in the scheme of things as they are an integral part of the society.
Responding, the royal father, Oba Adejugbe promised to support the integration of the persons living with disabilities into policies and programmes capable of giving them the required recognition.
