A group, Persons with Disabilities Initiative Nigeria,
on Monday advised the Federal Government to
channel unclaimed recovered monies into social
intervention programmes for its members. Mr Augustine Onwuameagbu, National President
of the group, gave the advice in an interview with
newsmenin Abuja. Onwuameagbu said government should utilise the
unclaimed monies recovered by the Economic and
Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) to establish
skills acquisition centres across the country. The group’s president said government should
come up with a scheme to enable people with
disabilities access funding from such monies to
learn skills and go to school. •Cross section of Persons with disabilities at the Lady Atinuke Oyindamola Memorial Home, Araromi, Badagry, Lagos State. According him, such move will show that the
government knows that people with disabilities
exist and is ready to support them. “The money can build an ultra modern skill
acquisition centre for us, where there will be
hospital, school, radio station where some of them
can work and earn a living. “If the federal government could concede to this
request, it would assuage our feelings of being
alienated from the dividends of democracy.” He hailed the whistle blowing policy of the
government, but said efforts should be made to
legalise it with an enabling law.
