He added that “it is in our country’s interest that we speak out and demonstrate our disapproval of the Akufo-Addo type of leadership, that has visited unprecedented hardships on Ghanaians.”
The ‘kum yen preko’ demonstration is a march which is to protest against the government over ‘hardship and oppression’ in ghana under the Akufo-Addo led NPP government.
The protesters according to the organisers, Coalition for Social Justice, will walk through some principal streets of accra after that an address are made by the leadership of the team.
The NDC Flagbearer who are taking part in the demo in his post to form awareness bemoaned that “our country is on the downward trend, with an unendurable increase in the cost of living; the citizenry doesn’t feel safe and nevertheless Government continues to oppress and intimidate the people including journalists. This state of affairs is a threat to our democracy especially as the moral society remain unconcerned and surprisingly silent on the developments in our country, Ghana.”
Mr Mahama, however, urged Ghanaians to the demonstration so as to indicate their anger against hardships, insecurity and oppression.
