The National Democratic Congress (NDC), will on Monday October 10, launch the braille version of its manifesto in Accra.
President John Mahama about a month ago, September 17, officially launched the party’s election 2016 manifesto document in Sunyani in the Brong-Ahafo Region without a braille version for the visually impaired.
According to a statement issued by the spokesperson for the party’s election 2016 presidential campaign, Joyce Bawah Mogtari, “the Braille Version will make the NDC Manifesto accessible to the visually impaired and reflects the commitment of the NDC and President Mahama to expand interventions and introduce additional social protection initiatives to benefit the vulnerable.”
President Mahama will interact with some persons with disability and present demonstration models of the motorized transport for physically challenged persons to the National Federation of Persons with Disability which he had earlier promised.
“Under the ‘Consolidating Social Protection’ section of the NDC 2016 Manifesto, President Mahama made a commitment to improve the mobility of the physically challenged and introduce them to economic activities using motorised tricycles,” the statement said.
The launch will take place at the forecourt of the State House in Accra at 2:00pm.
