The Minority caucus in Parliament has postponed for the second time its planned protest to occupy the premises of the Bank of Ghana to demand the resignation of the governor and his deputies. According to the caucus, the protest is now scheduled for 3rd of October 2023.
The decision to postpone the protest according to the minority comes after the Police failed to mark out safe zones for the protest.
Minority leader Cassiel Ato Forson while addressing the media said the picketing has been temporarily called off due public safety concerns.
The minority had earlier insisted that the protest would proceed on Tuesday, September 12, despite the Ghana Police Service’s disapproval of its amended routes for the protest.
The meeting between the leadership of the Minority and the police ended inconclusively on Monday, with the MPs accusing the police of deliberately scheming to stop their planned protest for the removal of the Governor of the Bank of Ghana (BoG) and his deputies.
After three hours of meeting, the Minority told journalists that the police had failed to mark out a favourable route to them for the protest, hence their conclusion to embark on the demonstration.
