Sports Minister

Governor Ademola Adeleke has directed that all Osun citizens with disabilities  be duly registered without cost.

A statement made available to newsmen in Osogbo by the special adviser to the governor on special needs, Kamil Aransi, stated that the 10-day exercise  will end on Friday, June 7, 2024.

 Aransi said the registration would assist the government to know the exact number of people with special needs, especially in terms of wants and demands such as physical, sensory, cognitive, and intellectual impairments.

He stated that it would help the government to plan and cater for them rightly, in clear deviation from the past.

He further said the main purpose of the registration is to be able to identify and provide necessary support for people with special needs and to create an inclusive society where everyone has equal opportunities to thrive.

Aransi, who described Governor  Adeleke as a compassionate leader, stated that his principal was clearly obsessed with people with special needs and wants to make positive changes that would be a clear departure from norms.

He added that the data obtained from the registration would help the state and concerned ministry develop targeted programs and services, ensuring that individuals with special needs receive the necessary support and resources to lead fulfilling lives.
