The demonstrators who were made up of politicians, fishermen, farmers, car dealers, unemployed youth among others marched through the principal streets of Accra registering their displeasure.

"In the sector alone, this administration has since assumption in 2017 has employed lots of people into the health services as compared to the backlog from between 2012 and 2016 of which saw the NDC in power," he stated.
He called on the general public to refrain from any political demonstration organised by the NDC adding that they are the reason for the high rate of unemployment the country is battling with.
