Demonstrations record no casualties during my era – Prez Akufo-Addo

President Akufo-Addo has recalled that during the previous administration, some citizens were maimed and brutalised during demonstrations.

In an address at the 71st New Year School and Conference today (January 14) in Accra, President Akufo-Addo said today there are peaceful demonstrations taking place in Tamale.

Recalling the September 2015 Let My Vote Count Alliance protest which turned violent, President Akufo-Addo said there are now peaceful demonstrations in the country.

“Before I conclude, let me state a Ghanaian irony. Five (5) years ago, we had demonstrations in Accra calling for a new, credible register, in which some citizens were maimed and brutalised,” President Akufo-Addo said. “Indeed, a citizen, young Justice Adzakuma, lost his eye and died last year. May God bless his soul.

“Today, we are having peaceful demonstrations in Tamale, this time protesting against the decision of the Electoral Commission, whose constitutional remit it is to compile an electoral register, to have now a new, improved register. Fortunately, in this new era, there are no casualties. God bless Ghana”.
