The Greater Accra regional police command has put on hold the permit for the #dumsormuststop vigil being organized by some celebrities championed by actress Yvonne Nelson and hiplife Sarkodie.

The police put the permit for the vigil scheduled for May 16 to protest the power crisis on hold after a meeting with lawyers of the organizers.

The vigil, according to the organisers is a peaceful protest against the government’s failure to address the three-year-old power crisis in the country. Celebrities expected to join the May 16 vigil include Yvonne Nelson, Sarkodie, Ama K. Abebrese, DKB, Kweku Elliot, D-Black, Eddie Watson, Becca, Deborah Vanessa, Efya, Kwaw Kese, EL, Nikki Samonas, Van Vicker, XO Senavoe, Confidence Haugen and many more.

Although the police has given organizers the green light, securing a venue for convergence has been a problem. Both the University of Ghana and Total, owners of On-The-Run near Legon have declined the use of their premises as the converging point.

But Lawyer for the celebrities, Nana Kwasi Awuah told Asempa FM that, they are yet to meet with the police after authorities of Total gave them the green light to hold the vigil.

Meanwhile, the Ga Traditional Council has petitioned the Greater Accra Regional Police Command to stop the street protest.

According to the Ga Traditional Council, the timing of the vigil falls within the duration of the annual ban on drumming and dancing which precedes the celebration of their festival, Homowo.

The police are expected to meet representatives of the traditional councils Tuesday after which they will be able to take a definite position on the permit for the vigil.
