Members of the newly formed nationalist group, Arise-Ghana, have served notice to embark on mammoth demonstration in Accra on June 21, 2022, if government fails to meet their demands.

The group, made up activists drawn from the various political parties, including the Peoples’ National Convention (PNC), the Convention Peoples’ Party (CPP), the Ghana Union Movement (GUM), the Great Consolidated Popular Party (GCPP), All People’s Congress (APC), New Patriotic Party (NPP), National Democratic Congress (NDC), Civil Society Organisations, Driver Unions, Traders and citizens, the media, and the creative arts industry, want the government to reduce fuel prices by scrapping the sanitation levy on petroleum products, repeal the E-levy Act, cancel the Agyapa Royalties deal, and withdrawal the E.I 144 that sought to declassify part of the Achimota Forest Reserve lands.

Speaking at the maiden press conference of the group on Wednesday, May 25, 2022 in Accra, the General Secretary of All People’s Congress (APC) and leading member of the group, Mordecai Thiombiano, said the group will be left with no option than to stage series of demonstrations across the country if the government did not meet their demands.

He said the planned demonstration was part of activities the group will be using to save the country from mismanagement.
