Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Fashola has appealed to state governors to enact laws that would help make life easier for the people living with disability in their states.

Speaking as chairman at the wedding reception of Abdul Al-Makura, son of the Nasarawa State governor, who had hearing challenges, Fashola said people with disabilities were special and should be encouraged to reach their full potential.

“I appeal to all to be sensitive to the plight of those with disabilities. They are special people and all we need do is facilitate their special needs in and out of government.

“I appeal to those who haven’t enacted a law on people with their disabilities to do so in their respective domains,” Fashola said.

He called the reception, an international and inter-party event, and prayed that the lives of the couple would get better, and better like his since he got married to Mrs Abimbola Fashola, the first lady of Lagos State.

While supervising the cutting of the cake, the First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, urged the groom to “respect, love and believe in your wife if you want your love to last forever.

“To you my daughter, submit, obey, support and respect your husband. Do not involve third party into your home and do not report your husband to your mother or to his mother,’’ she said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the groom, who lost his hearing at the age of four to Lassa fever, met his wife, Anisa, who is also hard of hearing, at the Galodet University where they both study.

NAN reports that the governors of Kogi, Katsina, Gombe, Niger, Imo, Bauchi, and the bride’s family from Pakistan, were also at the event. [NAN]
