Member of Parliament for the Aowin Constituency in the Western region, Mr Mathias Kwame Ntow has stated that disability does not affect the minds of People Living With Disabilities (PWDs) and called for concerted efforts from all stakeholders to curb the stigmatisation and properly integrate such persons into society.

He made the call on the floor of Parliament in a contribution to a statement to mark the 3rd International World Albinism day.

“Disability does not mean the brains of individuals Living With Disability are not functioning’’ he stated.
The Aowin lawmaker also condemned the unfortunate superstitious killing of albinos for ritual purposes in some parts of the African continent.

According to him it is important for all stakeholders to put their hands to the wheel in finding a lasting solution to the menace of discrimination against albinos and other marginalized groups.

Mr Mathia Ntow advocated for the institutionalization of stringent measures to help provide special attention to the education of albinos and PWDs.
