A group known as ‘Coalition for the Defence of Equal Citizenship, (CODEC)’ is demonstrating against alleged ethnocentric comments made by Mr Yaw Osafo-Marfo, former finance Minister of the New Patriotic Party (NPP)..

In a statement issued by CODEC, the group said: “We wish to announce the formation and coming into existence of our broad-based, multi-partisan and multi-cultural nationalist group known as the Coalition for the Defence of Equal Citizenship (CODEC),” which “has been formed as a direct and immediate response to creeping ethnic bigotry and the incitement to tribal discrimination in our country, Ghana.”

The demonstration is meant to condemn Mr Osafo-Marfo’s alleged ethnocentric comments made over a month ago, to the effect that even though close to 90 per cent of Ghana’s resources are concentrated in Akan-dominated parts of the country.

Some leading members of the NPP have joined the wagon to protest against the former Member of Parliament for Akim Oda constituency.

Leading the protest is 2012 presidential candidate, Hassan Ayariga. Spotted at the protest is Ursula Owusu, MP for Ablekuma South constituency.
