David O. Anyaele, Executive Director, Centre for Citizens with Disability (CCD), has urged the Federal Government and the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to expand the nation’s financial inclusion policy to include provisioning for the disabled people in the society.

The Executive Director called on the nation’s financial sector just as the experts identified gaps in the set objectives by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to significantly reduce the number and percentage of adult Nigerians who are excluded from the formal Financial System of the country.

Anyaele, spoke at the inaugural conference of Oriental News Nigeria with the theme 'Engaging with critical groups to develop effective financial inclusion initiative'. 

He complained about the lack of consideration for the disabled in the Nigerian financial system through different kinds of neglect and rights denials.

According to him, the audit of bank branches across the country showed total neglect and lack of access and convenience facilities for the disabled.

He, therefore, urged prevailing attitudes of the financial systems against the disabled, describing it as a major institutional barrier to financial inclusion.
