Stakeholders task FG on adoption of continental disability law
Stakeholders have charged the Federal Government to adopt the Africa Disability Protocol to better the lot of those special people. During a virtual conference, they held that the procedure addresses some discriminatory practices against these under-privileged citizens, especially poverty and systemic prejudice, regretting that only six nations had adopted the law.
The compliant countries, according to them, are Central African Republic; Rwanda; Togo; South Africa; Gabon; and Burkina Faso. In her opening remark, the convener and chair of Africa Down Syndrome Network, Rose Mordi, said it was the vision of her organisation to see to the domestication of the legislation by all nations on the continent.
