"Kum yen Preko demo: NDC urges members to march against "insensitive" Akufo-Addo government

The leadership of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has urged its members and patriotic Ghanaians to join the Coalition for Social Justice's (CSJ) "Kum yen Preko" demonstration slated for Tuesday, July 9, 2019 in Accra.

In a statement issued and signed by the General Secretary of the party and copied to the media, Johnson Asiedu Nketia opined that "The leadership of the party wishes to affirm its support for this noble effort of patriotic Ghanaians to stand up against the clueless, arrogant and insensitive Akufo-Addo government".

The statement, is therefore calling its teeming supporters across the country to fully participate in the upcoming demonstration adding that the general public is also invited.

"Accordingly this statement is issued to urge as many members of the general public and the teeming supporters of the National Democratic Congress who can, to fully participate in the Kum Yɛn Prɛko demonstration, and indeed all other protests intended to expose the shambolic administration of President Akufo Addo".

The statement, however, warned that "The leadership of the party has advised that giving the level of desperation of the Akufo Addo government, the organizers should be on the lookout for possible disruptive activities by NPP hirelings and agent provocateurs".

Sammy Gyamfi has already explained to the media the rationale behind the march and said the march is against ‘Hardship and Oppression’ in Ghana under the Akufo-Addo-led administration adding that is a replication of the President’s own demonstration he led in 1995 in Ghana.

“Nana Addo instituted ‘Kum yen Preko’ and we are going to protest the same way under the same oppression and hardships under which he led protesters in 1995 when former President Rawlings wanted to implement the Value Added Tax in Ghana,” he said this to newsmen.

He added that the demonstration was also inspired by the “unfulfilled” promises of President Akufo-Addo which led to his victory.

“We had so much hope in the Akufo-Addo administration to transform Ghana after they made all those campaign promises in 2016 but it seems all these promises have become 419,” he added.
