PPP rejects police call to reschedule demonstration

The Progressive People’s Party (PPP) says its demonstration against corruption will take place as planned in spite of a National Security ban on public demonstrations.

‘We find your decision not to provide us with the needed police protection for our planned demonstration scheduled for September 10, unacceptable,’ said Nii Allotey Brew-Hammond, National Chairman of the Party.

A statement issued by the party in Accra on Sunday and copied to the Ghana News Agency, noted that the National Security ban on public demonstration is an infringement on the constitutional right of members of PPP to express themselves.

Nii Brew-Hammond said inability of the police to provide protection for demonstrators constitute a grave abuse of administrative powers.

‘Our demonstration against corruption will… take place as schedule along the route suggested by the Greater Accra Regional Police Commander,’ he said.
