The Ghana Police Service has filed an application at the court to halt a planned demonstration at the Jubilee House by a group known as Democracy Hub.
A statement from the police, issued on Wednesday, September 20, 2023, said the group had scheduled the protest for Thursday, September 21, to Saturday, September 23, 2023.
“As we wait for the court to determine the matter, we wish to urge the public to take note and disregard any calls from any individual or groups encouraging them to assemble for a demonstration at the Jubilee House,” the release said.
On Tuesday, September 19, the organisers of the protest held a press conference to inform their members of the measures put in place to make the protest a success.
They assured that all the necessary logistical arrangements had been put in place for protesters who would want to sleep over at the Jubilee House during the three-day period.
The group has accused the government of mismanaging the economy and demanded better relief packages for suffering Ghanaians.
