CARE Paid Advocacy Visit To Abuja Broadcasting Corporation Ltd, Aso Radio and TV

The Center for Ability Rehabilitation and Empowerment (CARE) paid an advocacy visit to Abuja Broadcasting Corporation Ltd, Aso Radio and TV, Katampe Hill, Abuja on Wednesday to solicit for collaboration in creating more awareness for the ongoing accessible aviation campaign.

The Executive Director/Founder Dr. Chike Okogwu stated during his speech that his personal experience of discrimination as a person with disability by an airline at the Abuja airport which has been resolved, inspired the establishment of CARE and which is changing the narratives.

He further said that the dignity of persons with disabilities was lacking because of the myth on how the African society and Nigeria inclusive, culturally perceived disability as a curse from the gods or disease.

“At CARE, we believe that Persons with Disability deserves to be treated with dignity and respect as their right and not a privilege. Our CORE represents Courage, Opportunities, Responsibilities and Empowerment.”

Dr. Okogwu solicited for support from Aso Radio and TV to use their platform to reach out to the larger audience in the advocacy for accessible aviation campaign and inform the society of the milestones accomplished in the past one year in the Aviation sector especially at the Abuja airport and others eventually by the organization through the intervention of Oxfam & Voice in Nigeria project.

The management and staff of the Abuja Broadcasting Corporation applauded the CARE Advocacy for the milestones they have accomplished and pledged to partner and support the accessible aviation campaign with programs that will sensitize the general public and anything they can within their capacity as a grassroot Radio and TV station.
