4 years ago | 40
On Wednesday, March 28, the eighth Senate once again made history with the passage of the Conference Committee Report of the Discrimination Against Persons with Disabilities (Prohibition) Bill.
Speaking on the passage of the Bill, Abubakar Bukola Saraki, President of the Senate, highlighted that the passage of the Bill was another promise kept by the eighth National Assembly: “It was just a few weeks ago (at the beginning of the month) that the Kpakpando Foundation for People with Disabilities came to visit me at my Office, and I promised them that by the end of March, we would pass this Conference Committee Report and send it to Mr. President to assent.
“I am happy that we have kept to this promise with what we have done today. Thank you all,” Saraki said.
