On September 1, 2023, lawyers representing the Minority in Parliament filed an affidavit at the High Court in Accra, opposing the police’s application to halt their planned picket in front of the Bank of Ghana (BoG).
The Minority had initially scheduled a protest to march through key streets and the vicinity of the Bank of Ghana, demanding the immediate resignation of the central bank’s Governor and his deputies. They accused them of mismanaging the institution.
Following discussions with the police, the law enforcement agency suggested altering their protest route, a proposal that the Minority rejected.
Consequently, the police submitted an application to prevent the protest. In response, the Minority filed a counter-affidavit.
The court is scheduled to hear the application on Monday, September 4, 2023, while the protest itself is planned for September 5.
In a statement, the Minority emphasized their determination to proceed with the protest.
They declared their resolve to demand the resignation of the Governor of the Bank of Ghana and his two Deputies due to what they referred to as a massive loss of GHS 66.8 billion in 2022, resulting in a Negative Equity of GHS 55.1 billion.
Additionally, they alleged other acts of financial wrongdoing that have severely impacted the Central Bank.
The Minority, in collaboration with Arise Ghana, other Civil Society Organizations, and concerned citizens, reaffirmed their commitment to this historic protest.
They asserted their unwavering focus and determination to continue until the Governor and his deputies resign, concluding with the slogan, “Aluta continua Victoria aserta!” (The struggle continues; victory is certain!).
