The disabled community in Ghana has condemned popular music promoter Mr. Lawrence Nana Asiamah, also known as Bulldog against person with visual impairment.
A press statement issued this morning and signed by Amoah Kwaku Addi, The President of Network of Journalists for the Promotion of the Right of Persons with Disabilities in Africa- (PROMOAFRICA), strongly condemn a derogatory and distasteful statement made by artiste manager and creative director at Bullhaus Entertainment, Lawrence Nana Asiamah, also known as Bulldog against person with visual impairment.
According to an online publication, Bulldog was quoted as saying that “only the blind will not see we are changing lives and transforming Ghana..JMTOASO”.
PROMOAFRICA takes this statement from Mr. Bulldog in bad taste; therefore we call upon him to render a sincere apology to the blind persons in Ghana and across the globe.
Disability is everybody’s lot, one must see him or herself as an able person today but the next moment, it can be a different story.
We wish to draw the attention of Mr. Bulldog to the fact the NDC party; he is seriously campaigning for, has its roots and prides itself as a mass and social democratic party.
Promoafrica will like to use this opportunity to task leadership of all the political parties, communicators, activists and supporters to desist from portraying persons with disabilities in bad light but embrace us in the conditions we find ourselves, to enable us also contribute to the development and prosperity of Ghana.
