FG To Direct All TV Stations To Use Sign Language Interpreters by BeeBeeOoh(m): 9:17pm On Oct 14
The federal government says all television stations across the country will be directed to adopt the use of sign language interpreters.

Lai Mohammed, minister of information and culture, disclosed this on Thursday at the 2021 annual lecture organised by the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN) in partnership with the Albino Foundation and the European Union (EU).

According to NAN, Lai was responding to a complaint by Monsurat Abdulwasiu, a former leader of the women’s wing of the association of the deaf.

Speaking through an interpreter, Abdulwasiu said persons with disabilities have suffered exclusion as they only look at images during news hours without understanding the message.

“Only the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) has a sign language interpreter during one of its news hours. In the other media platforms, there are no sign language interpreters. Even in the healthcare sector, no sign language in Nigerian hospitals,” she said.

“So, what happens to deaf people when they are reading news, and when they are sick and go to hospital. Does it means that we are not entitled to information and healthcare? The government needs to look into this.”

Responding to Abdulwasiu, the minister said he will direct all television stations to adopt the use of sign language interpreters during major broadcast.

“I am very touched by the contribution of the young lady who said there is a need for sign interpreters during the network news and other major news belts,” he said.

“I am going to ask the NBC to direct all our television stations to ensure that there are sign interpreters in all television stations during their major news hours.

“This will not apply to only the Nigerian Television Authority. Whether public or private television stations, they must comply with the directive.

“This directive will work both ways. It means the complaint of exclusion will be tackled and the persons with disability of hearing will also be included in programmes and policies of government.”

Lai Mohammed is not satisfied with lying only to people without disabilities. He wants to include people who are deaf. Nice one.

Even the deaf ones that are in peace not hearing the bad news that happens daily in this contraption, you want to force them to hear it,

Nobody is federal government- pray your curse does not boomerang. Later you will be blaming your village people for what is happening to you, but forget that you ignorantly or recklessly placed curses upon yourself earlier in life. Your best bet is learn to avoid using uncouth or abusive language.

Well everyone including deaf & dumb have the right to enjoy basic human rights. But there are still lots of disenfranchised Nigerians in various sectors.
