The ‘Kum Yen Preko’ protest march, according to organisers – the Coalition for Social Justice (CSJ) – was a demonstration against economic hardship under the current government.

Speaking on the insecurity claims by the coalition, Captain Effah-Dartey said Ghana was the safest country, saying he wondered why the coalition would say otherwise.

“All the points they raised are neither here nor there. How many journalists have been beaten by soldiers or government officials, is it a daily occurrence or once in blue moon? I sometimes struggle to understand their claims,” he noted.
