Members of the Arise Ghana pressure group have told President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo that, their ancestors are not happy with his administration because challenges the government has plunged citizens into.

Hundreds of people thronged the streets of Accra for the first leg of a two-day demonstration held on Tuesday, June 28, 2022.

Most demonstrators held placards bearing different anti-government inscriptions, one reading: “Our ancestors are not happy with you.”

Other inscriptions were: “Stop recruiting hooligans into the Police service, they are killing us; Akufo-Addo, you promised us cheap fuel, what is happening? La General Hospital demolished forever.”

Meanwhile, the MP for Ningo Prampram, Samuel Nartey George, addressing protesters stated that, members of the pressure group will continue to mount pressure on the government until they do the right things.

He added that, the President should stop flying in rented luxurious jets and use the presidential jet that President Mahama used.

“The President should stop flying in rented and luxurious jets and use the presidential jet that President Mahama used", he was quoted by 3News.com.

“One day, we assure all and like the Bible says, weeping may endure for a while but joy comes in the morning. Our joy will come on the 7th of January 2024/ But between now and December 7 2024”, he added.

The purpose of the demonstration, according to the group, is to protest against persistent and astronomical hikes in fuel prices by the Akufo-Addo led government that has imposed economic hardships on Ghanaians.
