About eight opposition parties have thrown their weight in support of the intended NDC demonstration slated on Thurs, February 7, 2019 dubbed ‘Aagbe Wo Demo’ to wit ‘they are killing us‘ to register their displeasure in the violence that marred the recent election in the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency.
The opposition parties coming together under the name: Inter-Party Coalition for National Sovereignty include: 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).
In a statement, Bernard Mornah the convener of the coalition said: the opposition parties hope to draw public attention to the “looming threat on [Ghana’s] democracy, peace and stability.”
According to the group “as required by the Public Order Act 1994, Act 491, we wrote to notify the police and have subsequently had a fruitful meeting with the Greater Accra Regional Command. We assured them of our commitment to conduct a very peaceful and non-violent demonstration”
They are also calling “on all well-meaning Ghanaians to join in this mass action against oppression, injustice, electoral violence, vigilantism, police brutalities, rampant kidnapping and the breakdown of law and order.”
