As Nigerians celebrate the National Albinism Day to highlight the talent, challenges and lives of people with Albinism in Nigeria, an appeal has gone to Nigerians to stop discriminating against people with albinism.
Mrs Ajibade Risikat the interim kwara coordinator of Albino foundation in Nigeria stated this while speaking with newsmen in Ilorin. According to her, people with Albinism should be treated equally with those without Albinism in every aspect of daily life. She also stated the Foundation will continuously advocate favorable policies for Albinos in Nigeria.
Also lending her voice on the sidelines of the event, the permanent secretary of the Ministry of Education, Hajia Mariam Garba also called on parents and guardians of people living with albinism to takes extra care and pay attention to their needs.
