The Minority in Parliament has postponed its initial September 5th protest and picketing to September 12, 2023.
According to the Minority, the change in date is as a result of the outcome of proceedings in court on 4th September, 2023.
In a statement signed by the Minority leader, Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson explained that the court was unable to give an instant ruling due to the weight of the preliminary legal objections raised by the lawyers for the Minority in Parliament.
“The protest march is to call for the resignation of Governor Ernest Addison and his two deputies as a result of their gross mismanagement of the Central Bank which has occasioned an unprecedented loss of GHS60.8 billion and a negative equity of GHS55.1 billion; illegal printing of over GHS80 billion and in the midst of this crisis, this reckless team is building a head office at the cost of over $250 million when the Public Procurement Authority initially recommended $81 million.
“We wish to call on Ghanaians to remain resolute in the fight to protect our constitutional right to demonstrate and hereby assure them that the march to the Bank of Ghana Head Office will certainly take place on Tuesday, 12th September, 2023,” Dr. Forson stated.
