The Centre for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD) on Tuesday, 30th July, held Stakeholders’ meetings on the scourge of corruption and the Nigeria Disability Act simultaneously in two states; Kaduna and Akwa-Ibom state.
The stakeholders’ meetings were aimed at heightening the campaign against corruption by persons with disabilities (PWDs) in Kaduna and Akwa-Ibom state, as well as to campaign for the domestication of the Nigeria Disability Act passed into law by the federal government.
‘The Campaign is being implemented through a UK Aid funded project on Strengthening Citizens Resistance against Prevalence of Corruption popularly known as SCRAP-C.
The Executive Director and founder CCD, Mr David Anyeale, emphasized that the campaign was aimed at contributing to a reduction in corruption as a result of changing public attitudes that increasingly discourage corrupt activities among persons with disabilities (PWDs) and Nigerians at large.
SCRAP-C project is currently running in 5 states in Nigeria, the states include; Akwa-Ibom, Enugu, Kaduna, Kano and Lagos state’.
