All Persons with Disabilities are to enjoy free education, free healthcare and public transportation if the Convention Peoples Party (CPP) wins the December 7 polls.
The CPP Presidential candidate, Ivor Kobina Greenstreet, made the promise at a meeting with a cross section of Persons with Disabilities at Saboba in the Northern Region.
He inspired them saying, “Education for Persons with Disabilities would be totally free from kindergarten all the way to tertiary and access to the NHIS would be totally free.”
“We will ensure that even public transportation would be made progressively free for all Persons with Disabilities.”
The CPP Presidential candidate disclosed the party’s intention to set up a special fund to cater for the basic needs of Persons with Disabilities.
He also revealed that the next CPP’s government’s agenda to increase allocation of the District Assembly Common Fund for Persons with Disabilities from two to five percent.
“Our percentage of the District Assembly Common Fund for Persons with Disabilities will go straight to five percent and that money will not go to the district assembly but will be paid directly into a separate bank account and a separate fund to be announced for that purpose.”
“On top of that, we shall be passing a law which shall require all employers whether in the private sector or the public sector to employ at least five percent of their workforce as Persons with Disability.
“None of these will be made possible unless you give your vote to the CPP and the Presidential candidate, Ivor Kobina Greenstreet whose position on the ballot is number one.”
He cautioned the electorate against voting for the NDC and the NPP on December 7.
“In this December 2016 elections, we are making sure that President John Dramani Mahama does not come back to power and we are also making sure that Nana Addo Dankwa and the NPP does not come to power.”
He emphasized the need for the electorate to massively vote for the CPP for rapid transformation of their localities.
The Convention People’s Party’s (CPP) Presidential candidate, Ivor Kobina Greenstreet is on a five-day vigorous campaign tour of the Northern Region.
He has so far visited Mion and Saboba constituencies and is expected to tour Gushiegu, Nantong, Bunkprugu, Tamale north, Kumbungu, Tolon, Savelugu, Salaga south, Tamale north, Sagnarigu, Walewale, Nalerigu among others.
