No More Demo….NDC Banned From Further Protests In Accra

The National Democratic Congress has been banned from further protests in the nation’s capital.

In a statement signed by the Public Affairs Unit of the Ghana Police Service, they explained that the “prohibition order follows an affidavit filed by the police upon receipt of notification from the Greater Accra Regional Chairman of the NDC, kobina Ade Coker, on intended daily protest within the above-mentioned dates in Accra and all constituencies across the region.”

The restraining order granted by Justice Elfreda Amy Dankyi is expected to prevent the opposition party from demonstrating until January 10, 2021.

The court noted that “the request by the NDC cannot obviously be met by the police in view of the ongoing post-election and multifaceted security operations for the festive season and beyond“.

The Police have however “drawn the attention of the general public especially sympathizers, followers, and supporters of the NDC, to the restrictions order, and compliance“.

Sympathizers of the NDC have for the past two weeks organized numerous street protests following the declaration of Nana Akufo-Addo as President-elect in the just-ended polls by the electoral commission.

Former President John Dramani Mahama has described the EC’s verdict as unfair to favour the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).

His position has urged NDC supporters to hit the streets to demand that the announcement be overturned.
