We, people with disabilities must insist that Nigeria must be one. We have noticed in the time of crisis in the past we are the ones that survive most. We must not allow individuals with selfish interests to drive our passion and emotion.

It will not be acceptable in this government.

President Buhari has given me message to you that people with disabilities are special to his heart. You remain special in his heart. What he (Buhari) said he will do for Nigerians he will do it.

It is this special values he attached to us that made him create an office for us.

Ankeli took the opportunity to plead with members of the National Assembly to complete the process on the Disability Bill before them.

“I want to use this medium to appeal to the Senate President and Speaker, House Representatives to pass the Bill. Mr President is waiting. It is our right to have our Commission.

“I want to send a note of warning that God is not happy with the National Assembly if they don’t fix the Bill on disability. God  brought  Buhari for our sake and he will not fail us.
