Center for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD) has directed Persons Living with Disabilities (PWDs) not to participate in the coming Kogi and Bayelsa governorship elections if they feel that the environment is not conducive for them.

The Executive Director, David Anyaele, gave this order yesterday in Abuja during a public presentation of the ‘Report of Assessment of Provisions for Persons With Disabilities in Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Preparations for November 2019 Governorship Election in Kogi and Bayelsa States’.

Anyaele said: “On my part, I will tell people with disabilities in Kogi and Bayelsa states that if they feel that the environment is not conducive for them to participate, they should stay away. This is as simple as ABC.
