Published

on

Former President John Dramani Mahama has encouraged Ghanaians to join the ‘Kum yɛn prɛko’ demonstration today, Tuesday, 9 July 2019 organised by the Coalition for Social Justice in Accra to register their displeasure at the Akufo-Addo administration in connection with the hardship in the country.

According to Mr Mahama, Ghana is on the “downward trend” with “unbearable increase in the cost of living”.

Groups that have shown interest to participate in the demonstration include the Minority Caucus in Parliament, the Greater Accra Market Women Association, the Concerned Drivers Union, True Drivers Union, Free Media Vanguard, the Coalition for National Sovereignty, disgruntled MenzGold customers and unpaid customers of Gold Coast Fund Management.

In a Facebook post to endorse the demonstration, Mr Mahama said: “Our country is on the downward trend with an unbearable increase in the cost of living; the citizenry doesn’t feel safe and yet the 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 remains unconcerned and surprisingly silent on the developments in our country, Ghana.

“I welcome, endorse and I encourage all to step out tomorrow and join the #Kumy3npr3ko demonstration organised by the Coalition for Social Justice.

“There is a lot of pent-up anger among Ghanaians and it’s beginning to manifest even among the security services. This manifestation gives all the allied groups participating in it, the opportunity to vent.

“It is in our country’s interest that we speak out and demonstrate our disapproval of the Akufo-Addo style of leadership, which has visited unprecedented hardships on Ghanaians.

“Join the #Kumy3npr3ko demonstration tomorrow and show your anger against hardships, insecurity and oppression.”
