Rivers State Governor Rotimi Amaechi has advised Persons With Disabilities (PWDs) to be more productive.
Amaechi spoke yesterday at the maiden Rivers State Capacity Building Forum for Persons With Disabilities.
The forum was organised by the Ministry of Social Welfare and Rehabilitation.
The event was attended by the governor’s wife,Judith; commissioners; Chairman of the State Council of Traditional Rulers, King Theophilus Princewill; and other eminent personalities.
Amaechi urged the public not to be discriminating against PWDs, but to show them love.
The governor, who was represented by Deputy Governor Tele Ikuru, lauded Poroma for the initiative, while assuring that the administration will continue with its transformation agenda.
The governor’s wife, in her remarks, said the PWDs should be treated like other human beings.
Mrs. Amaechi noted that she had been placing emphasis on assisting the less-privileged in the society, whom she said must be encouraged, rather than pitied.
