Provide free tertiary education for persons with disabilities. Support tertiary institutions to invest in virtual infrastructure,” she said.

On law education, the NDC manifesto said: “vigorously reform and expand access to professional legal education and provide opportunities to all qualified LLB holders by granting accreditation to certified law faculties to undertake the professional law qualification course.

Establish a faculty of law in the Northern Region to serve the northern sector”.
