Amidst the spread of the Coronavirus in Nigeria, members of the United States-based Nigerians Living with Disabilities have petitioned the leadership of the National Assembly over the Federal Government’s delay in establishing an agency to oversee the affairs of the people living with disabilities in the country.

The groups: Organisations of Persons with Disabilities, Equal Rights for Persons with Disabilities International Inc, FESTAC-USA Inc. Kaysom Holding Inc, Center for Advocacy and Citizens with Disabilities, among others, said the delay in setting up the agency was in contravention with the Discrimination Against Persons with Disabilities (Prohibition) Act, 2018, otherwise known as Nigerians with Disabilities Act.
