Bawumia vows Free Tertiary Education for persons with disabilities if elected president


During an engagement with clergy members in the Western North Region as part of his nationwide tour, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), pledged to offer free tertiary education to all individuals with disabilities who gain admission to universities in Ghana.


Dr. Bawumia emphasized his commitment to prioritizing scholarships for persons with disabilities, stating, “I am very clear on the way forward. I believe that for persons with disabilities, we are going to support them a bit more.”


He outlined that the scholarship program would cover both academic and residential fees for eligible individuals starting from 2025. Dr. Bawumia assured, “We are giving scholarships to every person but I am going to dedicate some of the monies to our scholarship secretariat and the GET Fund to provide free tertiary education; both tuition and accommodation to every person with a disability who makes it into the university so they can all benefit.”
