Look at my ability not the wheelchair – Greenstreet

Flagbearer of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Ivor GreenstreetThe flagbearer of the Convention People’s Party, Ivor Greenstreet has charged electorates not to be demoralized by his physical appearance but rather focus on his ability and potential to move the country forward.

According to the flagbearer, his government will empower persons living with physical challenges and ensure strict enforcement of all disability laws in the country.

He said this on Saturday during the introduction of Parliamentary candidates for the party in Upper Manya, Lower Manya, Asuogyaman and Okere constituencies to party executives and supporters at Agormanya in the Lower Manya constituency.

He cited the election of the former US president, Franklin Roosevelt, a physically challenged, who won the US elections even at the time of war.

“The greatest president America has ever had, Franklin Roosevelt because of polio was in a wheelchair but he became a president for four occasions…so I am pleading with you don’t look at the wheelchair at all, it is about the ability and capacity,” Mr. Greenstreet said.

Mr. Greenstreet also took the opportunity to interact with market women and traders at the Agormanya market.
