Nigeria Marks lnternational Day Of Persons With Disabilities

Over  31,000,000 communities of Persons Living with Disabilities (PLWDs) in Nigeria have called on government at all levels to implement various domestic laws and international conventions.

The call is coming as Nigeria joins the rest of the world today to mark the International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD).

The IDPD is a day set aside by the United Nations since  nineteen ninety-two to promote understanding of disability issues with a focus on the rights of PLWDs in every aspect of the political, social, economic and cultural life of their communities.

The theme for this year is ‘Leadership and Participation of PLWDs toward an inclusive, accessible and sustainable post-Covid-19 world,’ with a focus on their empowerment for inclusive, equitable and sustainable development as envisaged in the twenty thirty Agenda for Sustainable Development.
