THE DAILY GRAPHIC finds it untenable the explanation by the Toll Manager, C.D Antwi that not only PWD’s but all workers of the tollbooths have been affected by salary arrears since September.

It says it is not for nothing that the country enacted the Persons With Disability Act,2006, realising that the less-privileged had been neglected and not well-catered for by society compelling many of them to go onto the streets begging to fend for themselves. The paper says the situation is not so in other parts of the world where the vulnerable and weak are the most protected and cared for in society.

The Graphic implores all institutions which have a role to play to mitigate the suffering of the vulnerable to sit up and ensure that their needs are well catered for.
