The Ghana Police Service has cleared the youth wing of the National Democratic Congress to embark on their intended “March for Justice” demonstration on Tuesday, July 6, 2021.
The police had earlier declined an invitation to provide security for the demonstrators on the basis that COVID-19 restrictions were still imposed.
But the NDC insisted on embarking on the protest, rubbishing the reasons for denying their request.
The police according to the Youth Organiser of the NDC, George Opare Addo however rescinded their earlier decision after a crunch meeting between the two parties.
“We had a very fruitful meeting. They have agreed that they will allow us to protest. They withdrew the first letter they wrote to us, and so we also withdrew our statement we issued, and then they agreed that it was our democratic right to demonstrate, so it was not a difficult meeting at all,” he said.
Meanwhile, the NDC is calling on #FixTheCountry protestors who have in the past been denied their request to protest to join hands with them as their concerns are similar.
