THE National National Secretary of Amputees Coalition of Nigeria (ACON), Gorge Dominic Anwayi, has tasked the Federal Government on full implementation of Disability Rights Law signed lately by President Muhammadu Buhari.
While acknowledging the appointment of some individuals with incapacity by President Muhammadu Buhari, he famous that thousand others had been struggling in silence attributable to lack of mobility, bodily accessibility and stigmatization within the space of unemployment.
Anwayi lamented this throughout a one-day Amputees convention organised by the Amputees Coalition of Nigeria in collaboration with Dynamic Orthotics and Prosthetic Nig. Ltd, held in Jos, Plateau State.
“We are all aware of the disability rights law that was signed by President Muhammadu Buhari but it is not just the signing of the bill into law that matters, but implementing the law to the fullest. Up till now, we are having issues and challenges despite the fact that the law has been passed,” he lamented.
