Nigeria’s blind society holds virtual meeting


The Federal Nigeria Society for the Blind (FNSB), a non-governmental and not-for-profit organisation will on July 2, hold its Annual General Meeting (AGM) in a virtual setting for the first time, by Zoom.

According to the society’s chairman, Engr. Olugbolahan Sobande, the AGM will review its 2019 activities, impact of COVID-19 on the society and its sustainability plan, elect and introduce new Council Members and set into motion initiatives that will help drive a new agenda for positive development in the society.

In a statement signed by Sobande, the zoom meeting takes into consideration the changes happening globally due to the pandemic. It will also be the first AGM under the new leadership.

The FNSB was established in 1955 by some philanthropists with the objective of providing an institution to educate and empower visually-impaired people, giving them opportunities to pursue their various ambitions either academically or through vocational training.
