The Deputy Superintendent of Police, Effia Tenge, has issued a press release prohibiting the opposition party, National Democratic Congress (NDC) from protesting in Accra.
The statement explains that this prohibition is “a matter between the Republic (Ghana Police Service) and National Democratic Congress and Kobina Ade Coker, the High, under Justice Elfreda Amy Denkyi (Mrs).”
The Accra Regional Chairman of the NDC, Kobina Ade Coker, filed a petition to the Police Service to embark on daily protests in view of the EC’s declaration of the 2020 election results which the party rejected.
He filed this petition to embark on the protests with all executives, fans and supporters of the NDC from Sunday, December 20, 2020, to Sunday, January 10, 2020.
Unfortunately, “the request by the NDC cannot be met by the police in view of the ongoing post-election and multifaceted security operations for the festive season and beyond”.
The press release ends on the note, “the general public especially sympathizers, followers and supporters of the NDC to the restriction order and compliance”.
