Persons with Disability Make First Demand to New Sissala East MCE

The differently abled association in Tumu have asked the Sissala East Municipal Assembly during a 2022 budget hearing to provide them with a resource center.

The Center According to them will provide skills training for their members.

"Such a facility will help train our members and equip them with skills to contribute to the society". 

Madam Ruth Lardy an executive member and an accountant at RadfordFM made the appeal where she urged the municipality to consider to also relocate the Municipal Chief Executive's office from its current second floor to the down floor for easier access by their members.

Miss Lardy argued that the current situation bars persons with disability from accessing the offices of the Municipal Chief Executive and the coordinating directors office.

Mr Adams Moro the Sissala East coordinating director welcomed the suggestion and appealed to the association to meet their members and discuss the percentage allocated to them if it could not be used to provide a skills training center or otherwise.
