The recent killings and lawlessness of the co have finally taken overboard. On Tuesday July 6, 2021, hundreds of protesters took to heir heels through the streets of Ghana’s capital city, Accra, displaying against what they described as rising insecurity and lawlessness since President Nana Akufo-Addo came to power in 2017 till now.
Wearing mostly red or black, the youth wing of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) danced through the streets of Accra on Tuesday with signs such as “You tweeted for George Floyd … Ghanaians have died, speak up!”.

The opposition group put up maligned criticisms against the current NPP government claiming that the country is in a grave danger following the recent killings of innocent souls in the country talking about the murder of Ahmed Suale, an investigative journalist, the assasination of Kaaka, the” fix the country” convener, the robbery and killing of the police constable in charge of a bullion van in James town and other acts which have wreaked havoc and deteriorated the peaceful nature of our dear country.
The protestors also disclosed that Ghanaians are now insecured and living in fear due to these recent happenings and therefore appeal to the government to act towards this unattended issue before it gets out of hand. Journalists get beaten, people get slaughtered like animals, heads get decapitated sparking up fear in the hearts of Ghanaians and diminishing the state of our democracy and for crying out load, nothing is being done.
The opposition group also used their protests to call for the government’s intervention into these current atrocious acts making sure that the perpetrators are brought to book.
The lives of Ghanaians matter and must be safeguarded because without the masses there will be no state and without a state there will be no government.
