Deaf, Dumb & Blind Persons Protest In Anambra State Over Voting Rights

Persons with disabilities have staged a protest in Awka, the Anambra State capital, over their voting rights. The group said its members were being marginalised in election issues.

It demanded equal voting access in the November 18, 2017 poll in the state and in other elections.

The Executive Director of Centre for Citizen with Disabilities, Mr. David Anyaele, led the protest. Anyaele said persons with disabilities were more than 600,000 in Anambra State and over 25 million in Nigeria.

The group threatened to take its protest to the National and State Houses of Assembly if they were not properly accommodated in the electoral processes of the country, starting with the Anambra poll.
