It was indeed a recognition of hard word and selflessness as persons living with Disabilities in Ekiti State on Friday honoured the state’s commissioner for Information Aare Muyiwa Olumilua with an award of excellence and Exemplary leadership.

The award by the special persons is one out of several of its kind received by Olumilua since assumption of office barely a year.

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

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

Presenting the plaque to the Commissioner, the Chairman, Joint National Association of People with Disabilities explained that good people are like thunder light which cannot go unnoticed.

He urged the Commissioner to keep the good work just as he showered encomium on governonor 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 than successive governments in the state but pleaded with the governonor to appoint a special adviser on Disabilities so as to further enhance commutation 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.

Olumilua said there is no one wthout a Disability, describing the people as his friends and colleagues.

He said all he had done was through the Devine 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 appointing 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 persons with Disabilities.

Noticeable during the programme was an emotion laden eulogy rendered by an albino who is a member of the group.
