Persons living with disabilities, under the auspices of Kehinde Oshilaja Foundation for People Living with Disabilities, have appealed to the Lagos State government as well as other tiers of government for the inclusion of PWDs in government budgets.

Speaking on behalf of the PWDs during the commemoration of World Disability Day at the foundation’s headquarters in the Ebute-Metta area of Lagos State on Thursday, Kehinde Oshilaja, who commended Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for his various programmes for the PWDs, said there was a need for more inclusion by the government.

“We like the way and manner the Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, is handling all that has to do with our members, but we need more inclusiveness in all tiers of government so that all that concerns our members would be pre-captured in budgets of all tiers of government to directly cater for all that concerns all people living with disability with ease,” Oshilaja said.

The Coordinator of the Kehinde Oshilaja Foundation commended the wife of Nigeria’s President, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, for her “unshaken love and continuous support for people living with disabilities,” praying for the success of President Bola Tinubu’s government.
