Governor of Ekiti state, Kayode Fayemi, on Thursday, presented a cash gift of N150,000 to a physically-challenged woman, Mrs Bolanle Daniel, to purchase a wheelchair to ease her movement.
The Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Development, Alhaja Maryam Ogunlade, presented the cash gift on behalf of the governor, in her office in Ado-Ekiti.
She reassured the people on commitment of the Fayemi-led administration to the general wellbeing of the people of the state, especially the physically-challenged.
“I urged people living with disabilities to take advantage of the opportunities provided by the Women and Youth Skills Acquisition Development Centre in the state to make them self-reliant.
“Gov. Fayemi will continue to empower and encourage people living with disabilities,” she added.
