“I am calling on the People of Ho to boo the president when he comes there for the 6th March. Boo him louder than he has ever been booed in his life before. Let him understand the trauma of his Presidency.”
Emulate the independence struggle of Gbedemah - Barker-Vormawor to Voltarians
He also urged Voltarians to emulate the independence struggle of people like Gbedemah, who singlehandedly kept the revolution alive.
“Your ancestors fought for independence. Singlehandedly, Gbedemah kept the revolution alive when Nkrumah was jailed. No one is asking more from you. Your charge on this Independence Day is to express, on behalf of all of us, our national indignation to a person that represents Everything that Nkrumah will be repulsed by. Make Ghana Proud. Boo the president,” he said.
The Volta Regional capital, Ho, will play host to the president, members of his government and other dignitaries as the country marks the 66th independence day celebration on Monday, March 6, 2023.
