Abstract

This paper explored the strategies for conquering the challenges of disabilities in Nigeria. It particularly examined discriminatory practices and social problems encountered by challenged persons and emphasized the need for such challenged persons to sustain self-esteem despite the odds. The paper also looked at legislations for assisting persons with disabilities in Nigeria. It regretted that most of these legislations were either forgotten or poorly implemented. It is recommended that persons with disabilities should be entitled to all rights and privileges enjoyed by other citizens. They should also be given responsibilities at the helms of affairs of society to tap from their ingenuity and to give them a sense of belonging.
