NDIC COMMENDED FOR ADHERING TO DISABILITY PROHIBITION ACT

Date:

The Coalition of Persons Living with Disabilities in Nigeria (CPLWDN) has lauded the Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation (NDIC) for its steadfast compliance with the Disability Prohibition Act of 2018. The coalition expressed its appreciation for the agency’s commitment to allocating the stipulated percentage of jobs to the disability community in all recruitment processes under its leadership.

During a press conference held in Abuja, the National Coordinator, Mohammed Zaria, and National Secretary, David Olarewaju, conveyed the commendation while also extending congratulations to the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of NDIC, Bello Hassan. Hassan’s recent appointment as vice chairperson of the International Association of Deposit Insurers, African Regional Committee (IADI-ARC), was hailed as a source of pride for the disability community, given his demonstrated belief in and support for their struggles.

The CPLWDN, a coalition comprising over 45 groups from various clusters across Nigeria’s six geopolitical zones, united to collectively amplify their voice and express gratitude for the support received from fellow Nigerians. President Bola Ahmed Tinubu was acknowledged for recognising Mr. Hassan’s outstanding performance and retaining him as the head of NDIC. Under Hassan’s leadership, NDIC not only restored confidence in the banking sector but also witnessed a surge in daily banking transactions, thus bolstering investor confidence.

The NDIC’s distinctive commitment to inclusiveness was highlighted; aligning seamlessly with the present administration’s renewed hope agenda. The coalition emphasized the need for continued efforts to alter perceptions and attitudes towards people living with disabilities. They urged the National Commission of Persons Living with Disabilities, led by Executive Secretary James Lalu, to promptly award a certificate of compliance to Hassan on behalf of NDIC.

Under Mr. Hassan’s exceptional leadership, the NDIC played a pivotal role in stabilising the nation’s financial system. Their diligence and commitment were acknowledged both locally and internationally; notably through a review of maximum deposit insurance coverage in alignment with international standards set by the International Association of Deposit Insurers (IADI).

The coalition’s call for inclusiveness in policy formulation and governance resonated strongly; urging President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to bolster support for their cause. While commending the national assembly’s legislative efforts, they emphasised the critical need for effective enforcement mechanisms to uphold the laws. Media houses and channels were implored to amplify their voices and ensure that both government agencies and the private sector adhere to the Disability Act by providing opportunities for their members.
