Special Adviser to Anambra Gov. Willie Obiano on Disability Matters, Mr. Chuks Ezewuzie has come out to say that persons with disabilities are mostly worst-hit amid the pandemic.
Chuks revealed this in a recent interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Awka.
According to him, the government should do everything possible to accord such people with the attention they deserve during these trying times.
He added that it is unfair for people with disability to be hindered or endangered in time of pandemic or other civic responsibilities.
His words, “If special rights are accorded persons with special needs in the state at all times, people with disability would not be hindered or endangered in time of pandemic or other civic responsibility.”
“We do not need to wait for an era of emergencies to plan for the special persons in our midst.
“Concrete plans on how to give them care and give them a sense of belonging should be all time plan, not in pandemic or national calls.”
