OSOGBO—With a few days to February general elections, the people living with disabilities in Osun State have appealed to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, and other relevant organs of government not to disenfranchise them.

A cross section of challenged persons who spoke at an election awareness programme organized by an NGO, Hope for Family Development Initiative, HFDI, in collaboration with INEC urged the electoral body not to discriminate between them and those without disability during the polls.
