According to Senate President Godswill Akpabio, the National Assembly will give bills and laws pertaining to people with disabilities top priority in order to ensure their involvement in national operations.
During his speech on Wednesday in Abuja at the International Day of Persons with Disabilities celebration, Akpabio made this statement.
The celebration of the Day in 2023 was organized by the National Commission for Persons Living with Disabilities, with the theme “Renewing Hope Together for Disability Inclusive Societies.”
Governments all throughout the world, in Akpabio’s opinion, have accomplished amazing things in creating a culture that celebrates diversity and the inclusion of individuals with disabilities.
He clarified that the Day offers an excellent chance to study international best practices, which will assist Nigeria in becoming a more inclusive country.
He declared, “The Nigerian Senate firmly stands with the NCPWD in expressing our commitment. Our support embodies a concrete commitment to actively participate in international discussions on building an inclusive society.
Let’s seize the chance to rekindle optimism in one another. I pray that Nigeria would be acknowledged for its variety and its capacity to guarantee that every person, regardless of aptitude level, is respected and involved.
“We need to create laws to make sure that everyone’s interests are taken into consideration and upheld, even though we are aware that laws are made.”
