Some time ago, I was blogging about the Executive Director of the Centre for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD), along with his experience. CCD and I have been advocating on different occasions.
A few weeks ago, the Executive Director and the teams wrapped up a meeting with the Senate President Saraki. With the second reading of the Bill for an Act for the Establishment of a National Commission for Persons with Disabilities in Dec 2015, the 8th Senate has demonstrated its resolve towards ensuring more access for Nigerians with Disabilities.
Moving forward, the Senate president promised to work with the CCD and other developmental partners to examine how they can strengthen the law for our countrymen and women with disabilities. Check it out: Facebook
