Flagbearer of the opposition NDC for the 2020 election, ex-President John Dramani Mahama has declared his support for the “Kum Yen Preko” demonstration which comes off today(Tuesday) morning.
In a Facebook post, he urged all Ghanaians to hit the streets to demonstrate their displeasure of the negative happenings under the Akufo Addo government.
“Our country is on the downward trend, with an unbearable increase in the cost of living; the citizenry doesn’t feel safe and yet 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.
“I welcome, endorse and I encourage all to step out tomorrow and join the #Kumy3npr3ko demonstration organized 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.”
The demonstration will kick off at the Obra Sport, through Kwame Nkrumah Avenue to Farisco Traffic Lights towards COCOBOD Head Office and finally end at Hearts Park where demonstrators will be addressed by their leaders.
