NDC accuses NPP of neglecting promises to persons with disabilities

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Disability Desk has called out the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) for failing to fulfill promises made to Persons with Disabilities (PWDs).


The NDC highlighted the NPP's failure to provide free tertiary education for PWDs, as outlined in the NDC's 2020 manifesto.


Emphasizing the seriousness of the issue, the NDC criticized the NPP for allegedly plagiarizing their manifesto promises and questioned the credibility of the NPP government in delivering on pledges made to PWDs.


The NDC also pointed out discrepancies between promises made in the NPP's 2016 manifesto regarding inclusive education and the actual achievements reported in their 2020 manifesto.


Furthermore, the NDC condemned the NPP government's treatment of PWDs working at toll booths, citing the abrupt suspension of road toll collection without prior notice, which led to hardship for many PWDs.


The NDC urged the Vice President to fulfill the promises made to PWDs before the 2024 elections and cautioned against presenting plagiarized ideas.


In response, the NPP has yet to issue a statement. However, with the 2024 elections approaching, the debate over inclusivity and support for marginalized communities, particularly PWDs, is expected to remain at the forefront of political discourse.
