Police in the region have officially written to them to suspend the demonstration due to the president’s visit.

Wearing red armbands and attires, with placards with the inscription "JM must go", "Mahama Wahala, wahala Mahama", the protesters have begun marching through the principal streets of Tamale, demanding for a reduction in electricity tariffs to at least 50 percent.
