The Centre for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD) has called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), to review the locations of polling units for easy access by persons with disabilities in future elections.

The Executive Director of CCD, Mr David Anyaele made the call in Awka on Monday while addressing newsmen on the group’s post-election findings of the just concluded Nov. 18 election in Anambra state.

“The distribution of Braille information, education and communication materials 48 hours to the election without logistics was good example of how not to make provision to persons with disabilities.

“INEC should review all their processes to ensure that persons with disabilities are not left behind in the electoral process in future elections,” Anyaele said.
