Rivers State House of Assembly begins debate on bill seeking protection of people living with disabilities in the state

hon vicky Are you mentally/physically disabled or has any form of disability?
The Rivers State House of Assembly has commenced its debate on a bill seeking to protect people living with physical and mental disabilities in the state. The bill titled “Disabled Persons welfare Bill” is sponsored by the member representing Port Harcourt Constituency one, Honorable Victoria Nyeche who said when enacted; it will address the challenges facing the Handicapped that has denied them from living a normal life like every other able-person.

I am really excited about this new Law. The rights of the disabled persons will now be protected. This means that a person having mental or physical disability can now be able to look for employment without any form of discrimination on the grounds of his/her disability. KUDOS to the Rivers State Government.
