The Nigeria Communications Commission (NCC) has donated 50 sets of HP computer laptops to the National Commission for Persons with Disabilities (NCPWD).

Dr Aminu Maida, the Executive Vice Chairman of NCC, made the donation during a courtesy visit by a delegation from NCC to the NCPWD headquarters in Abuja on Tuesday.

Maida, represented by Mr Tijani Munguno, a Deputy Director in the Commission, stated that the provision of the ICT equipment stemmed from NCC’s belief that Persons With Disabilities (PWDs) need these tools to thrive.

He emphasised that the equipment would enhance the digital communication skills of PWDs, enabling them to compete effectively in the ICT market.

He noted that this support would aid the commission in fulfilling its mandate and promoting inclusivity.

Maida highlighted the importance of digital technology in today’s world, stating that access to it is crucial for efficiency and quality output.

He expressed hope that the laptops would have a significant impact on the disability community.

Dr James Lalu, the Executive Secretary of NCPWD, expressed gratitude to the NCC delegation for their donation and support.

He affirmed the commitment of NCPWD to collaborate with NCC in advancing the digital communication skills and knowledge of PWDs.

Lalu also presented National Accessibility Manuals to the delegation, enabling NCC to familiarise themselves with accessibility standard guidelines in their various offices.(NAN) (www.nannews.ng)
