Mr Oyebanji spoke during a surprise visit to the State Special School for the Blind in Ikere Ekiti, where he said that people living with disability are special to his administration.

“We are going to appoint a special adviser for people with special needs so that you can have someone in the cabinet that will be speaking for you,” the governor said.

Mr Oyebanji, who was conducted around the school for an on-the-spot assessment of facilities by the principal, Felicia Amogbonjaye, assured the students and teachers that the school would witness a facelift that would make the environment more friendly, accommodating and conducive for learning.

He said individuals could adopt some special students or volunteer to fix facilities in their homes and schools to complement the government’s efforts.
