It was an outpour of love from family, friends and associates of the Executive Assistant to Governor Seyi Makinde on People With Disabilities, Barrister Ayodele Adekanmbi as he celebrated his birthday with pomp.
Adekanmbi, who a member of Board of Trustees National Association of Persons With Disabilities, was surely surprised and appreciative, of the show of love he received, especially from the entire Joint National Association of Persons With Disabilities executives under its Chairman, Ajulo as they honoured one of their own in appreciation of his services to the people with disabilities in Oyo State.
Parts of his magnanimous attributes aside from his official duty as an appointee of government, were regular and prompt payment of house rents, empowerment of different categories, regular payment of school fees for children, payment of medical bills and innumerable opportunities for people with disabilities across Oyo State.
In his appreciation to Barrister Adekanmbi on his birthday, Ajulo, who was full of praises to God and humanity, firstly thanked for having Governor ‘Seyi Makinde as governor of the state, who believes so much in the people with disabilities by his usual characteristics of giving hope to the hopeless and for appointing their benefactor and down to earth man in person of Barrister Adekanmbi who has been helping them for decades.
He prayed God to continue to uplift him, adding that the governor does everything with a clear conscience; continue to take decisions in the interest of humanity.
Ajulo, similarly, extended the word appreciation to members of JONAPWD for celebrating Adekanmbi on his birthday, describing the gesture as the best he could have ever received.
“I want to thank God for keeping our helper and leader alive,” noting that there was no limit to what people with disabilities could not achieve if given the needed love and support.
“The physically challenged need our help very well. We can all see those physically challenged begging on the streets, whatever you like you give them. You must support them with all you can.”
“Some of them you see are graduates, some are businessmen that are doing very well.”
“There is no limit to what we can achieve, all we just need is care and your support. At this point, I will want to call on the government at various levels and well meaning people in the society to always care for those with disabilities, especially the Persons With Disabilities. We have understood that there are different levels of disabilities, you can be mentally disabled, you can be spiritually disabled, emotionally and others,” he posited.
