A group calling itself the Inter-Party Coalition for National Sovereignty has hit the streets of Accra to protest recent violent happenings in the country particularly with regards to the clashes that temporarily disrupted the Ayawaso West Wuogon electoral process at the La Bawaleshie Center.
The demonstration dubbed ‘Aagbe Wo’ which means, “we are being killed” seeks to bring Ghanaians together to send a clear signal to the government to check the level of security in Ghana which they say threatens the country’s democracy.
The Inter-Party Coalition for National Sovereignty, comprising the largest opposition party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC), the Convention People’s Party (CPP), the Ghana Consolidated People’s Party (GCPP), the Democratic People’s Party (DPP), the People’s National Convention (PNC), United Front Party (UFP), the EGLE Party and the All People’s Congress (APC) are all expected to join in the demonstration.
The converging point for the demonstration is the Old Obra Spot at the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange.
Demonstrators will march from the Obra Spot through to the Farrisco traffic light, UTC, the High Street, the Ministry of Interior, the Police Headquarters and finally converge at the Jubilee House.
