FCT schools renovation targets special needs children



The Federal Capital territory Administration (FCTA) has begun the renovation of three schools to promote education for disabled persons.

The decision was reached, yesterday, in Abuja, when the FCT Committee on Inclusive Education Policy called on FCT Minister, Muhammad Musa Bello, to update him on progress made.

Receiving the report from the team leader, Mrs. Ekaete Judith Umoh, the minister assured that the FCTA was working to incorporate into its building policy regulations that would ensure new public building approvals, particularly for educational facilities, meet the standard for accessibility by children with special needs.

Bello said: “Already, I’ve seen the cost and budget. From what I’ve seen, at least, we would be able to fund three pilot schemes immediately. Hopefully, as we quickly finalise our 2018 budget, we will be able to accommodate the other ones.”
