In line with President Bola Tinubu’s renewed hope agenda for disability inclusion, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Special Needs and Equal Opportunities, Hon. Mohammed Abba Isa, has proactively facilitated the empowerment of Persons With Disabilities (PWDs) through the Small and Medium Enterprises Development Agency of Nigeria (SMEDAN).
Hon. Abba Isa demonstrated his commitment to inclusivity by midwifing the inclusion of five PWDs in the recent empowerment program organized by the agency.

Hon. Abba Isa vowed to continue to seize every opportunity available in both government MDAs and private initiatives for the betterment of the lives of PWDs in the country as rightly stated in mandate given to him by the President.
The Director-General of SMEDAN, Charles Odii, announced the gesture on in Abuja.
Odii said that the empowerment was done under the National Business Skills Development Initiative (NBSDI) of the agency.
