Police to meet Minority today over decision to demonstrate against BoG Governor, deputies

The Accra Regional Command of the Ghana Police is expected  to meet the Minority in Parliament today on their decision to protest against the Bank of Ghana (BoG) Governor and his deputies on September 5, 2024.

The Minority leader, Cassiel Ato Forson on Monday, August 21 notified the police command of the region of their caucus’ plan to organise a demonstration against Dr Ernest Addison and his two deputies of the Bank of Ghana.

Hon. Cassiel Ato Forson noted that the protest will be done in collaboration with Civil Society Organisations, Progressive Forces and other well-meaning Ghanaians at large.


According to the caucus, their action is based on the central bank’s illegal printing of over GH¢80 billion to the Akufo-Addo government.

However, a response from the Ghana Police Service requested for a meeting with the minority in Parliament and the meeting is suppose to take place later today.

On the back of this, the Command in a press release issued on Tuesday, August 22 said “The Accra Regional Police Command acknowledges receipt of your letter No OML/PH/23/0001 dated 21/08/2023 in respect of the above subject matter.”

“The Command wishes to invite you for a meeting to deliberate on modalities pertaining to your intended protest” on Wednesday, August 23, 2023, at the Accra Regional Police Headquarters at 10 am.
