Osun: People 3 villages in Borno with disabilities rally support for ADC candidate, Akinbade

Hundreds of people living with disabilities in Osun state on Wednesday rallied support for the candidate of the African Democratic Congressn (ADC), Fatai Akinbade, ahead of the governorship election on Saturday.
The group held a rally with the ADC deputy governorship candidate, Folahanmi Oloyede, in Osogbo on Tuesday.
Led by Lani Gbadebo, the group said ADC remained the only party that could salvage the state from “maladministration.” He said the present administration had neglected them and had not been attending to issues affecting them.
“We have made up our minds to support and vote for ADC on Saturday.
We have suffered enough and we believe in the pedigree and integrity of both Akinbade and Oloyede to rescue this state and also attend to our needs as members of this state,” said Gbadebo.
“We have gone through their manifestos and their plans for us and we are convinced that they are truly on a rescue mission.” Addressing the disabled, Oloyede said the party had the interest of the entire people of the state at heart and that issues affecting persons living with disabilities would be prioritised once Akinbade and herself were voted into power.
She said that people living with disabilities had equal rights in the society and that the party had made policies and plans to empower them.
“Once we get into office, we will hire medical specialists to ensure that permanent ailments that can be avoided are avoided,” she said.
“Aside from the provision of good health services, we will provide health insurance schemes and education for children with specialneeds.
