The demonstration is led by lawyer Martin Kpebu who wants President Akufo-Addo to resign over Ghana’s current economic hardship.
Hundreds of disgruntled Ghanaians have gathered at the Obra Sport at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle to demonstrate their displeasure over the current state of affairs in the country.
Addressing the media ahead of the demonstration, Martin Kpebu said Ghanaians can no longer wait until President Akufo-Addo exits power due to the corruption and mismanagement of the economy that has characterized his governance of the country.
He urged President Akufo-Addo and Vice President Bawumia to leave office in order to allow for the constitutional provision for his replacement to be activated.
“We are dying; citizens are dying; citizens can’t afford food; citizens are starving all because of malgovernance by President Akufo-Addo. It never happened that you have a president in office and every time that the country borrows, the president’s family becomes richer; how?”
“This can’t continue. We can’t borrow all the time and have Databank becoming richer all the time. Citizens have a duty as stated in Article 41 [of the Constitution] to ask the president to resign and this is not the first time that a president of Ghana is going to resign,” Martin Kpebu said.
