The Coalition for Social Justice, organisers of ‘Kum Y3n Pr3ko’ demonstration, has said it was impressed with the conduct of the security personnel during its demonstration in Accra on Tuesday.

According to a member of the organisers, who is a communications team member of the National Democratic Congress, Abass Nurudeen, though the demonstration was triggered by hardships in the country coupled with attacks on the media, the police were in support of the demonstration because they themselves were also suffering.

“I can tell you on authority that the police are not safe. They are suffering insecurity and because they felt they couldn’t demonstrate, they really were happy to see us hit the streets so we can relay their suffering to government,” he told Accra based Okay FM, monitored by

“The total disregard for the views of the masses, the massive corruption, the CDD report and 9.6 billion cedis has been lost. Bad governance, incompetence, corruption, ineptitude, intolerance and attacks on dissent and free expression are the reasons I joined the ‘Kum Ye Preko’ demonstration,” Member of Ghana’s Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa said.

Mr Nurudeen said the demonstration was very successful and peaceful because it was in the interest of journalists, police officers, drivers, traders and all Ghanaians.
