IMO State Chapter of the Nigerian Association of the Blind, NAB, yesterday, cried out over what they described as the continued refusal by the state government to listen to their plight.

The group led by Christopher Kalu said they were bothered by the kind of treatment they receive from the government, adding that the issues they had outlined some years ago were not addressed even at the moment.

Kalu said his group had protested three times in the state without getting attention from the Rochas Okorocha- led administration.

Kalu recounted among other things “that the government promised us that they will establish a special school for the blind and up till now, we have seen nothing. Some of us had to travel outside the state in search of schools for the blind and we have a government that is talking so much about free education.”

He adedd that “Okorocha promised us in 2013 that he was going to build a school but we have not seen anything.

“We have not received our bursary allowances for over six years.”

Kalu claimed that the government had also promised their members empowerment opportunities.

At the time of filling this report, Kalu was said to have been invited to meet with a government official inside the government house and by the time he came out, he told his members he was not satisfied with the position of the government official on their demands.
