AFAG hits streets over Woyome saga
Pro-opposition pressure group, the Alliance for Accountable Governance (AFAG), is embarking on a street march this morning to protest what it says are economic hardship and corruption under the Mills administration.
Spokesperson, Samuel Awuku, says AFAG is particularly unhappy with government’s handling of the Woyome saga.
He told Joy News the removal of fuel subsidies also smacked of insensitivity on the part of the government.
Myjoyonline.com’s Ernest Dela Aglanu who is at the Obra Spot near the Kwame Nkrumah Circle reports organizers are excited about the numbers turning out for the match.
Dela reports of excited crowds of demonstrators draped in red drumming and dancing.
The Director of Protocol at AFAG, Maame Afua Akoto, told journalists the disorganized state of affairs in the country testified to the gross incompetence of government.
She said the situation is even worse when the incompetence and incoherence in government is cupped by massive corruption, citing the all too familiar Wayome judgement debt scandal.
Miss Akoto said while President Mills at his interaction with editors said he would not be so criminally minded and irresponsible to order the payment made to Mr Wayome, he had failed to take action on those responsible for the payments.
The march is expected to be ignored by government.
Some of the placards carried by demonstrators read: Atta will go; Atta Nie, Wayo Nie; Corruption na Double Double; Reduce petrol prices now!
The AFAG demonstration comes just a day after a pro-government group petitioned President Mills to compel former government officials to cooperate with EOCO as it investigates the matter.
