FG To Reserve 5% Employment Slots For Persons Living With Disabilities

The Federal Government is set to implement a policy that will compel all Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) to reserve five per cent employment slots to persons with disabilities across the country.

The Senior Special Assistant to President Bola Tinubu on persons with disabilities, Mohammed Abba-Isa, said this in Damaturu, Yobe State capital, at a meeting he held with disabled persons and other stakeholders after his appointment.

He mentioned that his office is working closely with the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation to ensure persons with disabilities are empowered, in order to reduce the number of those roaming the street to beg for alms.

He also hinted constructing skills acquisition centres in the six geo-political zones of the country where persons with disabilities can acquire skills.
