Disabled Seek Better Treatment


A group known as Nigerian Professionals with Disability/Challenges has tasked civil  society, corporate organisation, government and concerned individuals to assist  members of the association  to live a better life.

The group made the call in a release signed by Rufai Yussuf, the group’s  co-ordinator, which was made available to P.M.NEWS, on the solutions to the  protracted challenges facing persons with disability.

The group said, “after taking stock and going down the history lane of 50 years of  independence, it was concluded that the country has grossly mistreated and failed  her citizens with disability and challenges.

“Nigerians and those in authority in corporate and civil governance must get it  right this time by adopting without reservation and without hindrance, international  best practices and behaviors towards persons with disability and physical challenges

.“We believe that the incomprehensible neglect, mistreatment and insensitively meted  out to persons with disability/challenges will only become history when everyone  concerned change their approach towards them”

The group is to  mark this year’s International Day for Persons with Disability on  3rd December,2010 with the theme Roadmap to a Better Future at conference centre of  Lagos State Teaching University.
