The Police administration has dispatched 400 officers for Wednesday’s anti-government demonstration by a pro-opposition group, Movement for Change in Kumasi in the Ashanti region.

The group is demonstrating over what they describe as the harsh economic conditions in the country and the worsening power supply.

Addressing the media in Kumasi Tuesday, the Ashanti regional Police PRO ASP Yusif Mohammed Tanko said: “200 of the officers will be coming from Accra to complement the other 200 in the Ashanti region”.

He added that the Police headquarters has also released two crowd control vehicles to help with crowd management in tomorrow’s demonstration.

He warned that the police will not tolerate any indiscipline from the demonstrators.

Tomorrow's demonstration comes on the back of last week's "Won Gbo" protest march by the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP).

The march which was led by the NPP flagbearer Nana Akufo-Addo was to express the frustration of Ghanaians to government on the power crisis that has engulfed country.
