Presidential Candidate of the Convention Peoples Party (CPP), Ivor Kobina Greenstreet has promised persons living with disabilities a free education and health care if he is elected President in the December polls.
- Mr Greenstreet, who is on a campaign tour in the Soboba district of the Northern Region said he will be firm to the decision to make sure that people with disability enjoy free education and health when he comes into power.
“I will make sure all people with disability issues will school and visit the hospitals for free from Kindergarten through to the tertiary level under a CPP government” he said.
“We will ensure that even transportation will be progressively free for all disabled people under the CPP government” he added.
The presidential candidate indicated that, political parties in the country have taken persons living with disability for granted for far too long.
Under his government, he pledges to give them all they deserve to enjoy a better life.
“Persons with disability are supposed to enjoy better life because they are not strong to do hard work but the other political parties are not thinking about them. The CPP Government will make sure these people enjoy what they deserve.”
