On the sideline, Luka said there were no plans by INEC to extend the ongoing Voters Registration exercise, adding that the deadline remained June 30, 2022.

Also Mrs Olukanni-Abochai Eniola, Director of Medical Rehabilitation Mobility Appliances & Aids, LASODA,  in her remark, said that the body was passionate about the inclusiveness of PWDs, especially in the area of exercising their nationality mandate.

“This is to say it is fundamental for the PWDs to have mouth and input in every decision if they want to go along with the majority or not, as related to electoral process in the country,

“LASODA appreciates the fact that INEC is showing that they are  recognising the PWDs and they must not be left behind in fundamental issues  in the political arena,” Eniola said.
