President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday, during his state visit to Lafia, the Nasarawa state capital, has commissioned the Comprehensive Special School, Lafia, which was established by the Nasarawa state government to cater for the educational needs of physically challenged children.
While inaugurating the project, President Buhari stated that the institution was a demonstration of the collective ambition to uplift the standard of living of all Nigerians through social investment policies.
“The school will cater for the blind, deaf and people living with other forms of physical challenges. It represents a clear example of our inclusive policy where no child will be left behind.
“The institution is a well thought-out initiative to give hope to a key segment of the society that has been ignored and neglected by previous administrations. Therefore, we
all owe it a duty to help the physically challenged persons by contributing to their development and self-reliance,” Buhari added.
