“Therefore, to enable an accessible, open, credible, and competitive process, the Governor-Elect has approved the launch of the online system to collect information on available competencies, experiences, and interests through a platform

The committee said the platform is designed for indigenes of Anambra to volunteer or seek a political appointment, or career in paid public service positions.

“This Human Resources tool offers a transparent and level playing field for talent search and team selection processes consistent with the vision of the Governor-Elect.

“We hope to attract problem-solvers with passion, competence, capacity, and integrity who are interested in joining a team of other selfless public servants to build a livable and prosperous state.”

Meanwhile, Mr Ugochukwu Okeke, State Chairman, JONAPWD, appealed to the governor to include PWDs in the appointments to be made when he received members of the Justice Development and Peace Caritas (JDPC) and the Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), in Awka, on Saturday.

Okeke said such inclusion would help them have a voice in government as well as to contribute their quota to the development of the state.

“We appreciate Governor Willie Obiano for the opportunity accorded persons with disabilities by employing about 250 of us into the state civil service and for establishing the disability commission.

“We want this gesture to continue which is why we came up with a charter of demands for the incoming administration. We appeal to Prof. Soludo to consider PWDs as some of his political appointees.

“When we have some of us in government they are in the best position to understand the needs of people like us and push for policies that will better our lives.

“We also want his administration to consider having a data of PWDs in the state, continuous employment of PWDs, the introduction of social protection programmes, housing scheme, scholarship and improved healthcare,” he said.

Okeke also urged political parties to prioritise the total inclusion of PWDs to help them contest during elections and fully participate in political activities.

He appreciated JDPC- Onitsha, for their continual support for persons with disabilities in the state.

Earlier, Mr Alphonsus Nwoye, the Manager, JDPC Onitsha/FCDO project, said the visit was to generate development issues to be used in engaging the incoming administration.

Nwoye said such engagement would deepen inclusive and good governance for sustainable development in Anambra.

He also sought for the partnership to intensify voter and civic education to encourage PWDs to participate in politics ahead of the 2023 general elections.
