The House of Representatives Committee on Disabilities has invited the management of Kentucky Fried Chicken, KFC, over the alleged unfair treatment of a person living with a disability, Adebola Daniel, son of former Ogun state governor, Senator Gbenga Daniel.

The committee’s chairman, Bashiru Ayinla, made this known while briefing House of Representatives correspondents at the National Assembly Complex, Abuja on Tuesday.

Ayinla, a member of the All Progressives Congress representing Oshodi/Isolo-1 Federal Constituency, Lagos State, said the committee would ensure anyone found culpable of breaching the Disability Act is punished by the provisions of the law.

The Discrimination against People with Disabilities Prohibition Act 2018, passed by the National Assembly, aims to safeguard the rights of persons with disabilities,However compliance with this Act has been lacking since the grace period ended in January.

Fielding questions from journalists, Dawodu debunked insinuations that the committee was getting involved because of the status of the Daniel son, but rather to correct the wrong practice of discrimination against persons with disabilities (PWDs), stressing that “if Adebola’s case would help us address the problem, so be it.
