- The deputy director of NADMO has revealed that NDC's demonstration on hardship had an outrageous budget
- According to Abu Ramadan, the party spent over GHS 1 million on the said demonstration
- He described the march as the “most expensive” yet “most awful” in the history of the Fourth Republic
A Deputy Director General of the National Disaster Management Organisation, Abu Ramadan, has revealed how much the National Democratic Congress spent on their 'kum y3n pr3ko' demonstration.
He said it has never happened before in Ghana, revealing that over GHS1 million was used for the demonstration which he nicknamed “Kempinski demonstration”.
In a post-'kum y3n pr3ko' demonstration debate on CTV’s Ghana Kasa, Abu Ramadan described the march as the “most expensive” yet “most awful” in the history of the Fourth Republic Constitution, since, according to him, there was “no massive turnout”.
He said though the demonstration sought to create the impression that Ghanaians were suffering, it ended up doing otherwise.
“Over 35 buses were rented to convey people to the demonstration grounds” while the marchers “printed messages on placards; does that reflect hardship?” he wondered.
In his estimation, the demonstration was so partisan that one expected nothing but aspersions and allegations to be flung at the Akufo-Addo government since about 80 per cent of the demonstrators were in John Mahama 2020- and John Mahama 2016-branded t-shirts
