Awutu-Senya East MCE- Dr. Adams Nuhu
According to him, persons living with disability are creatures of God bestowed with enormous untapped talents which when supported will make them self-sufficient instead of relying on begging as the easiest means of making money.
Dr. Adams Nuhu made the call at the launch of ‘Ghana Disability Achievers Awards’ in Accra on Saturday, July 30, 2016. The launching ceremony was sponsored by Abodonkwa Herbal and the Zone Restaurant and Pub.
The project dubbed “Ghana Disability Achievers Awards”, the first of its kind in Ghana, is a brainchild of Talented Multimedia Company which seeks to recognize distinguished persons with disability (PWD) in Ghana whose achievements have contributed positively to the socio-economic growth of the country in diverse ways.
“Persons with disability are blessed with great untapped talents which can be developed through learning of trade which all Ghanaians must help them to achieve so they can create their own wealth instead of sitting by the roadside with the show of amputated hands to make money the easiest way which I believe is not the best,” he stressed.
According to Chief Executive Officer of Talented Multimedia Company, Elder Eric Akoto, the initiative is aimed at empowering persons with disability to overcome their disability and contribute meaningfully to the development of Ghana by giving true meaning to the refrained and that “disability is not inability).
The disability achievers awards project is expected to run annually with nominations which started today, Monday, August 1, 2016. This would be later held in the year. Persons with disability above 18 years are eligible for nominations.
The first prize winner will be rewarded with a plot of Land, Plaque and Cash, whiles the 2nd prize winner takes home a plot of Land and a Plaque, a cash and a Plaque goes to the 3rd prize winner and the Fourth to Twentieth prize winners will each be recognized with consolation prizes . The general public is entreated to nominate deserving persons with disability above 18 years by sending contact details of nominees including name, age and a brief statement stating the reason why the person should be awarded and it would be forwarded to an email:firstname.lastname@example.org for the awards that would be held later this year.
