Project Enable Africa, a non-governmental organisation, has announced the nominees for the 2022 disability inclusion and leadership (DIAL) awards.

The organisation announced the nominees for the awards on Saturday to commemorate the United Nations International Day of Persons with Disabilities.

The theme of this year’s International Day of Persons with Disabilities is — Transformative Solutions for Inclusive Development: the Role of Innovation in Fuelling an Accessible and Equitable World.

Project Enable Africa is an initiative of Stanforte Edge Ltd/Gte that promotes the rights, empowerment and social inclusion of persons with disabilities in Nigeria.


Speaking about the DIAL awards, Ademibolanle Ajijala, the project manager of the 2022 awards, said the awards have become a platform to yearly celebrate stakeholders and persons with disabilities.

“The DIAL awards is a notable platform that brings together key stakeholders of the community of persons with disabilities across Nigeria together every year to celebrate our progress, foster partnership and mobilise resources to address the issues facing the community in Nigeria,” she said.

“Certainly, we have made appreciable progress with disability inclusion in Nigeria, but we still have a long way to go to achieve a truly inclusive society, especially in public policies and institutions. DIAL Awards has created a unique opportunity for us all to come together towards ensuring that no one is left behind.”
