By Thompson Yamput

An International Non-Governmental Organisation (INGO), TAF Africa, has sensitised Persons With Disabilities (PWDs) on full participation in the forthcoming Kogi Nov. 11 Governorship Election.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the INGO’s Voter Education Campaign was aimed at reducing voter apathy to the barest minimum.

NAN also reports that the campaign was also to promote the mainstreaming of persons with disabilities in the electoral process.

Mr Olayemi Samuel, the Programme Officer, TAF Africa, said at the “TAF AFRICA’S ABLE-TO-VOTE CAMPAIGN” in Lokoja that participation of PWDs in the process was key to the nation’s democratic growth.

Samuel explained that their (PWDs) participation in the forthcoming elections was so vital, as it would go a long way in sampling their rights to vote and be voted for in the nation’s polity
