“I am happy that we are looking at disability not as a challenge. I want you to know that government is ready to touch this particular segment of our society.
“Our People’s First manifesto includes all. And for those that are a bit more vulnerable we give them even more.
“This administration will set up a disability commission. We have three appointments for persons with disabilities; Special Adviser to the Governor, Senior Special Assistant and Special Assistant as well as others that will run the commission.

“Our promise today is to make sure you forget what has happened. Life is not about how you are, rather how you take yourself, how you honour yourself and how you carry yourself.
“We will make sure nobody cheats you. We will always do what is right by the disability community,” the Governor told the enthusiastic gathering.
