Hundreds of Ghanaians from all walks of life have joined the
Inter-Party Coalition for National Sovereignty’s ‘Aagbe wo’ demonstration to
protest the increasing rate of violence in the country.
The Coalition said they were pushed to organize the demonstration following the recent clashes at one polling station during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election which resulted in the shooting and injuring of about six persons.
They explained the protest is to send a clear signal to the government to check the level of insecurity in the country, which they say is threatening the country’s democracy.
General Secretary of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, who was
part of the demonstration, said government had used several platforms to
frustrate the group but they would not give in.
The procession which included MPs, various parties in opposition and market women, went to present their petition to the Inspector General of Police Headquarters after presenting a similar one to the Interior Ministry.
They also went to the Flagstaff House to present their petition which was received on behalf of the President, Nana Akuffo Addo.
