Scores of Ghanaians in New York, the United States of America, on Thursday demonstrated against the government of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
According to the demonstrators, cost of living has risen sharply under the NPP administration, making life unbearable for Ghanaians.The demonstrators also claim that the Akufo-Addo-Bawumia government is deliberately targeting former government appointees for prosecution.
The protests happened at a time the President was delivering his maiden speech at the UN General Assembly.
“Mr. President Leave Charlotte Osei alone,” “Mr. President Stop the lawlessness by your vigilantes,” “Stop the witch-hunting” were some of the inscriptions on the placards.
This is the second time a demonstration has hit Akufo-Addo’s administration since he assumed office January 7.
The government is yet to respond to the demonstrators.
Below is a video of the demonstration in New York and the President’s speech at the UN Meeting:
See for yourself.
