SEMA registers 790 retarded people
The Kano State branch of SEMA has registered 790 retarded people. This was disclosed by Dr Sale Jili, the executive secretary of the agency.
He added that the centres were designed to provide psychological support, clinical services, vocational and skill acquisition training to the clients.
We gathered that the disabled clients were made to learn shoe making and tailoring, to enable them learn trades and become to be self reliant.
“The centres are like hospital, it is the responsibility of the government to provide them with basic needs of life.
When we observe that they are mentally stable, we discharge and integrate them into the society.
