The President visited his alma mater Thursday night as part of his three-day campaign tour of the Greater Accra region in his bid for re-election as president for a second term. He presented the manifesto to a representative of students with disabilities.
Receiving the manifesto on behalf of all students, Mr Arhin Gerald Emmanuel Daakyehene expressed gratitude and thanks to the President for recognizing the capabilities of persons with disabilities in general, and persons with visual impairment in particular to the development of the country. He hoped that this would manifest in all institutions especially University of Ghana.
He admonished everyone to critically examine manifestos of all political parties in order to make an informed decision in the December 7 polls.
The NDC, which made history when Mr John Mahama became president by appointing a visually impaired as a cabinet minister also becomes the first political party in Ghana to make its manifesto accessible to persons with visual impairment.
