Gov Uduaghan Makes Case For Albinos

Uduaghan 600“NO human being must be rejected by any due to any known or unknown reason as they are human beings just like you and .”Governor Uduaghan of Delta made the remark at the flag off of the sensitization/ campaign on Albinism at Wesley University of Science and Technology, Ondo, saying albinos never and should not be denied their rightful place the society.

Uduaghan said was saddened about a week ago after watching an Aljazeera programme which showed a deplorable and despicable documentary on the plight of Albinos Kenya and Tanzania, lamenting that as a medical doctor who should know better, was indeed saddened.

Represented by Dr. Rukevwe Ugwumba, Special Adviser on Health Monitoring, the Governor said: “There are Albinos among us and we should not deny the fact. It is a fact. What we should not do is to deny them their rightful place the society. That am here today is significant. being now, the Ministries of Health, Women Affairs and Culture and Tourism, Information, are now coordinating to ensure that albinism matters are handled with efficiency and care.”
Continuing, asked “Why take a medical and natural condition to mean another thing? This dastardly act unfortunately implies that God sorted some of us to be different in hierarchal order. This is false as skin colour, doesn’t depict superiority or give anyone the right to do harm. Each one of us is peculiar and uniquely made.”

Earlier, Miss Adesuwa Ero, the Coordinator, a youth corper undergoing her National assignment, said she already knows at her age what it feels like to suffer discrimination for a reason which is no fault of hers, which doesn’t at all alter her at all as a human being, one like any other.

She said as an Albino, she has blossomed to a young and beautiful and for emphasis a very normal woman like any other at her age, she is normal and she is human, maintaining that “ all the same though one  might be more human and in touch and even more intelligent than people like us without Albinism.”
