Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke has directed that all Osun citizens with disabilities must be duly registered.

The exercise which is free of charge is to enable the state government to know the number of people with special needs, especially in terms of wants and demands such as physical, sensory, cognitive, and intellectual impairments.

This was revealed by Kamil Aransi, the Special Adviser on Special Needs in a personally signed statement on Sunday..

Aransi disclosed that the ten-day registration exercise will begin on Monday, May 27, 2024, through Friday, June 7, 2024.

"The registration would assist the government in knowing the precise number of people with special needs, especially in terms of wants and demands such as physical, sensory, cognitive, and intellectual impairments.

"It would help the government to plan and cater for them rightly, in clear deviation from the past."

He further stated that the main purpose of the registration is to be able to identify and provide necessary support for people with special needs and to create an inclusive society where everyone has equal opportunities to thrive.

Aransi disclosed that Governor Adeleke is clearly obsessed with people with special needs, and he really wants to make positive changes that would be a clear departure from norms.

He added that the data obtained from the registration would help the state and concerned ministry develop targeted programs and services, ensuring that individuals with special needs receive the necessary support and resources to lead fulfilling lives.
