Posted On


The police have prevented the members of the ‘Hands Off Our Hotels Demonstration’ from proceeding to the Jubilee House.


The protesters gathered at the Labadi Beach Hotel and were scheduled to end at the Christ the King School, where leaders intended to deliver a petition at the Jubilee House. However, the police made a sudden decision and prevented the march near the government headquarters.

North Tongu’s Member of Parliament and protest convener, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, informed the media that a brief altercation occurred, prompting the police to deploy water cannons and tear gas, leading to several protesters needing urgent medical care at the 37 Military Hospital.

“Why fire tear gas, as we speak now, they have rushed some people to the hospital and they should pray that there are no causalities,” Ablakwa said.

The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Fifi Kwetey, also alleged that the government was embezzling state resources.

“Leadership is supposed to be working for the people but what we have now is a leadership that is looking out for itself. History will have it that Ghanaians rose up against this corruption and insensitivity.”
