Senate passes Bill to prohibit Discrimination against Persons with Disabilities

Bayo Ajibola

The Senate today passed a bill which prohibits any form of discrimination against persons with disabilities. Although the bill was passed in the 6th and 7th Assembly, it was not signed into law for one reason or the other, and the Senate however hopes there will be a change in status quo this time.

According to Senate President Dr. Bukola Saraki, the “Discrimination Against Persons With Disabilities (Prohibition) Bill (2016) (SB 22)” is a highly significant bill that seeks to curb the abuse in all forms of Nigerians with disabilities. Most importantly, it seeks to promote the respect of the rights of all Nigerians with disabilities.

“With what the 8th Senate has done today by passing this bill for its third and final time in the Red Chamber, it is my hope that this National Assembly can finally break this jinx by getting it passed by the House of Representatives and assented into law by Mr. President” Saraki said.
