Some disabled persons were guests of Parliament this week to observe
proceedings on the floor as MPs discussed issues about the disability
It was however revealed that even though Parliament passed the law in
2006 it is yet to undertake necessary structural changes to make the
facility disability friendly.
Deputy Director of Public Affairs in Parliament, Kate Addo told Joy
News, the house is making efforts to address the problem.
The incident she noted "is unfortunate but to a large extent we've
made provision to ensure that people who cannot move about very easily
have other means of going to various destinations on the block."
"We will like to apologize to those who couldn't access the building
and promise that next time we will take cognizance of the fact that if
anything like that should happen, we would have prepared for it," she
Kate Addo noted that it is unfortunate that the old block lacks access
for people with physical disabilities.
