Data gathering: Emergence of fake PWD has been a challenge – NCPD boss


The Executive Secretary National Commission for Persons with Disabilities, James Lalu says the prevalence of some Nigerians who fake living with disabilities in order to get benefits has been a challenge in data gathering for the Commission.

This was in response to why data collation was taking lump sum of the budget allotted to the Commission.

Further explaining to the committee on Special duties during its budget defence, the NCPD Boss explains that humanitarians both locally and internationally demand data before intervention is been offered to the Commission.

This he says will require genuine data which is cost intensive.
