According to the NDC, former president John Dramani Mahama will give the key note address.

The program which is themed, “Towards Election 2020, Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election violence, never again”, has other speakers such as Kwesi Pratt Jnr, Dr. Basit Bamba and Adam Bona.

Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh has sighted a police wireless memo ordering officers to stay away from the NDC durbar scheduled for Friday, January 31, 2020.

"No police officer should be detailed to provide security for the event," the memo signed by the Second in Command for the police in the Greater Accra Region, Emmanuel Afriyie Sakyi said.

The memo further stated that “indeed all police officers within the region must dissociate themselves from the event” and warns that any police officer found at the event will be “severely sanctioned”.

But Member of Parliament for the Ningo-Prampram, Sam George expressed shock at the directive by the top hierarchy of the police.

In a post on his Facebook, Mr. George who was himself assaulted on the day of the election said the police have been duly informed about the durbar by the NDC.

The NDC also donated items and cash worth GHC12,000 to the victims of the violence that happened on January 31, 2019.

YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the Deputy Director in Charge of Operations at the National Ambulance Service, Foster Ansong-Bridja has revealed that Ghanaians who will require the service of ambulances for non-emergency situations will pay for fuel.

According to Mr. Ansong-Bridjan the monies collected will be used to support and sustain the NAS. He, however, noted that patients who can’t afford to pay will not be forced.
