Nollywood diva, Rita Dominic, has called on Nigerians to embrace and provide a comfortable environment for physically challenged individuals.
Dominic in a recent interview also appealed to the authorities to provide requisite support services to enable them to contribute to national development.
She said that a show of love and care, rather than pity, would give such individuals a sense of belonging and integration in the society.
“No one has seen God but the human beings we see are the manifestation of God, and so we need to show them love. The public need to know these people exist. We need to tolerate and accept them, they are human beings like us, if you don’t know them or go close to them, you won’t know their needs,” she said.
Dominic said that disability does not discriminate as it could happen to anybody irrespective of status or personality.
“Disability knows no social status, age, gender, tribe, race and religion. No one is immune to acquiring disability. If you do not get it at a young age, you may get it at old age. Therefore, we have to be generous and accommodating in dealing with people with disabilities,” she said.
The thespian urged physically challenged persons to also equip themselves by becoming educated, and acquiring vocational skills that would enable them to lead a better life.
