Ghana police affirm Security to minority prior to demonstration

A letter released by the Ghana Police to the minority in parliament has assured them of security ahead of their demonstration against Bank of Ghana Governor, Dr. Ernest Addison, which has been scheduled for Tuesday, October 3, 2023.

The basis of this demonstration is the fact that the minority disapproves of an alleged printing of about 80 billion cedis between 2021 and 2022 by the BoG for the current government which has led to the high inflation rate of 54.1% in December 2022. According to the minority, this has become a major reason for the current hardship the people are being faced with in Ghana.

As part of the demonstrations, the police directed the protestors to change their routes for their own safety. The security to be provided according to the police will be in line with Act 1994(Act 491).

The police stressed the Protestants take the necessary steps so that there wouldn’t be a breach of peace.

The routes to be used by the Protestants will be:

Obra Spot – Adabraka – Ridge Roundabout – National Theatre Traffic Light – High Court Complex Traffic Light – Atta Mills Highway – U- Tum to Independence Square.”

The Minority on Monday announced for the second time the suspension of its planned protest to occupy the premises of the Bank of Ghana to demand the resignation of the governor and his deputies.

The decision to postpone the protest according to the minority comes after the Police failed to mark out safe zones for the protest.

Minority leader Cassiel Ato Forson while addressing the media said the picketing has been temporarily called off for public safety.
