He, therefore, used the opportunity and called on Persons with Disability who are yet to register to do so to benefit from future disbursements.

He said the Presentation should be seen as a move to reduce poverty and empower Persons with Disability (PWDs) in the municipality to undertake economic ventures that will sustain their daily lives.

He explained that the Assembly will keenly monitor the beneficiaries to ascertain whether the items are in good use as expected.

He emphasized that the law will deal with persons who sell the items so all must take note.

Madam Mercy Amusah, the Municipal Director of Social Welfare and Community Development cautioned them against selling or misapplying the received items as that would defeat the objective of the gesture.
