NDC banned from demonstrations in Accra

The Ghana Police Service says it has secured a restraining order against the largest opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) embarking on further protests and demonstrations in Accra between 20th December, 2020 and January 10, 2021.

This was after it says the NDC had notified it of plans to hold daily protests in all constituencies in the region.

The ongoing nationwide protests and demonstrations is against the verdict of the December polls in which the NDC is accusing the Electoral Commission (EC) of rigging the elections in favor of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

However, the police in a statement signed by DSP Effia Tenge, Head of Public Affairs Unit says the request cannot be met.

“The request by the NDC cannot obviously be met by the police in view of ongoing post-election and multifaceted security operations for the festive season and beyond,” the police statement explained.
