The Inter-Party Coalition for National Sovereignty has kick-started the 'Aagbe Wo' demonstration on the streets of Accra on Thursday, February 7, 2019.
Their motive is to draw attention of the government to the recent incidents of violence in the country, especially with regards the Ayawaso West Wuogon election on Thursday, January 31, 2019.
According to Adomonline.com, it is also intended to address issues of security in the country, which they claim threatens Ghana’s democratic credentials.
The Inter-Party Coalition for National Sovereignty, comprises the National Democratic Congress (NDC), the Convention People’s Party (CPP) and the Ghana Consolidated People’s Party (GCPP).
The rest are 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).
The convenor of the coalition, Bernard Mornah, explained that its resolve to embark on the demonstration stems from the violent incident that temporarily disrupted the voting process at one of the polling stations during the Ayawaso by-elections and led to the injury of at least six persons.
He however explained that the protest is to send a clear signal to the government to check the level of insecurity in Ghana, which they say is threatening the country’s democracy.
YEN.com.gh understands that the demonstration is a result of the incidents of violence that occured during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election.
The Member of Parliament (MP) for Ningo-Prampram, Sam George was assaulted in the process.
