Arise Ghana has announced that on June 21, 2022, it will organize a massive demonstration to demand better from the incumbent New Patriotic Party (NPP) government.
At the coalition’s first press conference on May 25, 2022, the leaders expressed discontent with the country’s economic problems, worsening economic conditions, harsh taxation, state control and land grabs, and rising fuel prices.
Arise Ghana, insisting that the government is gradually transforming Ghana into a failed state, has sought, among other things, an urgent drop in fuel prices through the elimination of punishing fuel levies such as the sanitation charge.
The coalition also requests that the government repeal the Electronic Transaction Levy in addition to withdrawing E.I. 144 and halting the land grab in the Achimota Forest Reserve.
Mordecai Thiombiano, the group’s general secretary, stated during a news conference in Accra that the organization planned to hold a major rally next month to pursue these and other demands.
“…we wish to inform all Ghanaians that on June 21, 2022, in the city of Accra, we will launch a massive demonstration to press these demands,” he said.
Mordecai Thiombiano continued, “We thus call on all Ghanaians who wish a change in the affairs of our dear nation to join us in the streets of Accra for this historic demonstration.”
