A group associated with the NDC earlier today were joined by many other NDC groups from all walks of life to participate in the “Kum Yen Preko” demonstration to register their displeasure over what they term as severe hardship, insecurity in the country.
Members of the group claimed they are unhappy with several attacks on journalists which they say is an attack on media freedom.
Several groups which included the Minority caucus in Parliament, True Drivers Union, Free Media Vanguard, the Coalition of National Sovereignty, disgruntled MenzGold customers and unpaid customers of Gold Coast Fund Management joined the demonstration.
Demonstrators who converged at the Obra Spot at the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange this morning moved through Farisco, Cocobod Head Office, Okaishie, Makola, High Street and ended at the Hearts Park around 12:00 noon, where various speakers took their turns to address the demonstrators on some of the pertinent issues that have necessitated the demonstration.
Several NDC speakers cursed the Free SHS and promised to abolish the policy when voted back to power. They claimed money meant for infrastructural development and strengthening the economy is diverted in the Free SHS policy causing hardship in other sectors of the economy.
