The Minority in Parliament has written to the police informing the service of its decision to embark on a demonstration exercise on Tuesday, September 5, 2023, to protest against the Governor of the Bank of Ghana, Dr. Ernest Addison and his deputies.
The Opposition group criticized the Bank of Ghana’s management for losing GH¢60 billion in the financial year of 2022. They were also concerned about the excessive printing of money to cover government expenses.
For these concerns, the Minority group is demanding that the Governor and his deputies step down from their positions. The group believes that they have mishandled the central bank’s finances.
He further explained that the protest is also aimed at expressing the Minority’s revelation against what they termed as illegal printing of about GH¢80 billion, between 2021 and 2022 by the Bank of Ghana.
“We write in line with sections 1,2, and 3 of the Public Order Act 1994 (Act491), to notify you of an impending public protest to be embarked upon by the Minority in Parliament in collaboration with Civil Society Organisations, Progressive Forces and other well-meaning Ghanaians”.
The Minority in Parliament will converge in front of Parliament, and then march through some principal streets in Accra including Osu cemetery Traffic light area, Makola-Rawlings Park, Opera Square and end at the Bank of Ghana.
