The recent appointment of Mr. Carruthers Tetteh (ESQ), a visually impaired legal practitioner with Roseford Advocates and Legal Consult, as a Law Lecturer at the University of Cape Coast, is receiving accolades for its progressive and inclusive nature.

Commending this groundbreaking decision, the Ghana Blind Union (GBU) issued a statement praising the university for its commitment to inclusivity and recognizing the potential of individuals with disabilities.

Dr. Peter Obeng-Asamoa, the Executive Director of the Ghana Blind Union, expressed appreciation for Mr. Tetteh’s appointment, noting its significance in breaking barriers and showcasing the determination and accomplishments of individuals with disabilities.

Mr. Tetteh’s academic journey, marked by two First Class honors in his first degree in 2015 and his Bachelor of Laws (LLB) in 2019, is a testament to his resilience.

Emphasizing the broader impact of such appointments, the GBU asserted that providing opportunities for individuals with disabilities is a catalyst for national development. The union encourages organizations to recognize the potential within this demographic, as exemplified by Mr. Tetteh’s appointment.

While acknowledging the importance of qualifications in Mr. Tetteh’s selection, the GBU commends the University of Cape Coast for demonstrating a commitment to genuine inclusivity, where discrimination has no place. The university’s visionary approach aligns with fostering an environment where individuals of all abilities can contribute meaningfully to academia and beyond.

In light of this positive example, the Ghana Blind Union calls on both public and private organizations to embrace inclusivity in their practices, providing equal opportunities for persons with disabilities.

The union believes that such initiatives are crucial for tapping into the diverse talents that individuals with disabilities bring to various fields, ultimately contributing to national progress.
