The Secretary to the Government of the Federation Boss Mustapha has called for measures to make voting less cumbersome for persons with disabilities during the 2019 general elections.

Mustapha spoke in Abuja at an event to mark the 2018 International Day of Persons with Disabilities organised by the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation.

The theme of the 2018 International Day of Persons with Disabilities is “Empowering Persons with Disabilities and Ensuring Inclusiveness and Equality.’’

He reiterated the commitment of the Federal Government to ensuring free and fair elections, adding that it was the duty of Nigerians to perform their civic duties.

Mustapha said that the International Day of Persons with Disabilities was a reminder for countries to address the needs of all citizens in an inclusive, equitable and sustainable manner. According to him, persons with disabilities face enormous challenges in their daily activities in form of barriers that are often taken for granted.
