A pressure group calling itself Concerned Ghanaians, said it is bent on demonstrating on March 6 despite a request by the Police asking them to hold on to the planned action.

March 6, marks the 58th Independence Day of Ghana and according to the group, the day is very significant to demonstrate to register its displeasure about how the energy crisis is been handled.

In a statement signed by Ofei Dei Goodfellow, a leading member of the group, “After a careful and exhaustive consultation amongst themselves, they have decided that the demonstration scheduled for Independence Day should proceed.”

According to the group, “they met with the police to discuss the modalities for the march in which the police service suggested that they chose a different date since their personnel would be over stretched on the said date.

The meeting however ended in a deadlock, hence their decision to go ahead with its demonstration.

A statement signed by the Greater Accra Regional Police PRO, ASP Effia Tenge, stated that the Police “will not hesitate to use legitimate means to restrain the group's demonstration slated for 6th March which marks Ghana's Independence Day celebrations.

“As such, an attempt by any group or persons to demonstrate on the said date which is likely to jeopardize the grand celebration of the 58th anniversary of the country will not be countenanced.
