Communications Officer of the opposition National Democratic Congress, Sammy Gyamfi says the July 2, 2019 ‘Kum yen Preko’ demo by the Coalition of Social Justice is to give President Nana Akufo-Addo his own dose.

To Mr Gyamfi, the march against ‘Hardship and Oppression’ in Ghana under the Akufo-Addo-led administration is a replication of the President’s own demonstration he led in 1995 in Ghana.

“Nana Addo instituted ‘Kum yen Preko’ and we are going to protest the same way under the same oppression and hardships under which he led protesters in 1995 when former President Rawlings wanted to implement the Value Added Tax in Ghana,” he said on Adom TV Badwam show.

Mr Gyamfi added that the demonstration was also inspired by the “unfulfilled” promises of President Akufo-Addo which led to his victory.

 “We had so much hope in the Akufo-Addo administration to transform Ghana after they made all those campaign promises in 2016 but it seems all these promises have become 419,” he added.
