A group of disabled people from the northwestern states have pledged to support Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State in pursuing his presidential ambition.
The group made the pledge through the governor’s special adviser on disability issues, Mr. Abdulaziz Ibrahim, after a meeting in Sokoto on Friday.
Ibrahim said a similar endorsement meeting was also held in Kano and participating delegates including disability groups reviewed the progress made by the governor and the political situation in the country.
He said issues affecting the plight of people with physical disabilities were discussed.
He said attendees praised Tambuwal’s monthly stipends for the physically disabled and its other empowerment programs.
Ibrahim explained that Tambuwal’s achievements have had a huge impact on education, health, agriculture and other sectors of the state, pointing out that when replicated nationwide, they would have a positive impact on the population.
The special adviser said the group visited projects run by the governor and recalled his records when he was Speaker of the House of Representatives.
Ibrahim expressed his optimism that once elected President, Tambuwal would ensure an inclusive administration that would improve people’s lives. (NOPE)
