Ghanaian residents in the UK demonstrated against the Akufo-Addo led government in London on Friday 16th, June 2017.
Many protesters demonstrated in front of the Central Hall in Westminster where President Akuffo Addo met the Ghanaian community in UK.
Eye witnesses were amazed to see huge number of Ghanaians gather together to express their displeasure of Akuffo Addo's led government.It was clear that Ghanaians in the UK were unhappy about the lawleness, insecurity, corruption and injustice in Ghana since president Akufo Addo assumed office considering recent happenings in the country.
The finance minister, Mr Ken Ofori Attah had his own share of the demonstrators displeasure when he mistakengly passed through the wrong entrance to the event hall where demonstrators had congregated. He was boomed at and called names. The government is yet to respond to the issues raised by the demonstrators.
Visible on the placards were: 'stop the lawlessness by your vigilance', 'the $2.25 billion Ken-bond stinks' 'stop the unlawful sacking of the state officials' etc.
It is evident from the demonstration that Ghanaians are unhappy about the the state of lawlessness, indiscriminate dismissal of public servants,high cost of living etc. in the country.
We members of the NDC UK and Ireland chapter will like to use this opportunity to commend Ghanaian residents in the UK who came in their numbers to demonstrate in London and call on Akuffo and the NPP government to do more to improve the security in the country, review the $2.25 bond, stop the indiscriminate sacking of civil servants among others.
