The Nigeria Association for the Blind, has appealed to the Federal government to pay entitlements of its recently retired members to ease their hardship.

The Public Relations Officer of the association, Malam Ismail Abubakar, said that non-payment of the entitlements had worsened the situation of blind retirees.

Abubakar spoke to journalists at the Nigeria Union of Journalists Secretariat, Kaduna.

He alleged that about 30 of the associations members were retired or sacked in recent times.
According to the official, many of the affected blind people attended vocational training in Kaduna and Lagos states and had not reached the retirement age.

Abubakar said that their sack and retirement would force them into the streets as beggars in spite of legislation against begging in the state.

He also said that about 60 of the associations members who were sacked or retired in 2016 had yet to receive their entitlements.

He appealed to the all Government at all levels to come to their aid, saying that many of them were heads of families.
