It was indeed a recognition of hard work and selfless service as people living with disabilities in Ekiti State on Friday honoured the Ekiti state commissioner for Information Aare Muyiwa Olumilua with an award of excellence and exemplary leadership.

The people also presented a sign language textbook to the commissioner to enhance his communication with them.

The special persons under the aegis of the Joint National Association of People with Disabilities acknowledged the roles of the Commissioner towards the welfare of their members across the state.

According to them, the Commissioner displayed high sense of responsibility and love for special persons hence the need for the award so as to propel him for better performance.

Presenting the award to the Commissioner, the Chairman, Joint National Association of People with Disabilities Mr Omotola Omotona urged the Commissioner to keep up the good work just as he showered encomium on governor Kayode Fayemi for his developmental policies and programmes which he said had given them sense of belonging.

Also the secretary of the group Mr Funso Olajide said governor Kayode Fayemi had done a lot for special persons but pleaded with him to appoint a special adviser on disabilities so as to further enhance communication between them and his government.

Receiving the award, the Commissioner for information Aare Muyiwa Olumilua thanked the people for the recognition and dedicated the award to governor Kayode Fayemi.

According to Olumilua, there is no one without a disability, describing the people as his friends and colleagues.

He said all he achieved was through the divine help of God and Governor Kayode Fayemi who have always been magnanimous in approving his requests.

I couldn’t have done anything in the first place without my appointment by Fayemi and neither could I achieve anything if he never gave an approval so the governonor deserves all the encomium Olumilua said.

According to him, governor Fayemi is a God fearing man who has passion for human capital development particularly for persons with disabilities.
