Mr Eric Gregory Kwatia, the Chairman of the Finance and Accounts Committee at the Ashaiman Municipal Assembly (AshMA), has called for support for persons with disability (PWD) within the municipality.

He requested the acquisition of a disability-friendly vehicle to support the activities of the PWD association in the municipality.

Mr Kwatia made the request when the Rotary Club of Tema-Meridian donated 12 sewing machines to the association.

He said the association had brought a proposal for a vehicle before the Assembly to aid their movement because commercial vehicle drivers were adamant to assist them in boarding their vehicles.

He said, “Most of the commercial vehicles are not ready to assist them because they say they cannot carry them or assist them to board the vehicle.”

Mr Kwatia highlighted that “physically challenged people are able, their minds are very active and they are very alert” and should be supported to be successful.

He said the PWDs were challenged through no fault of theirs but by diseases or accidents and that anyone could one day find himself in such a situation.

Mr Ocloo Alex Kodzo, a member of the association, believed that when given the opportunity, PWDs would make something meaningful out of their lives.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
