The Police are poised to provide the necessary security for the safety of the planned procession of members of the fixthecountry movement on Wednesday 4th August, 2021.
The Police Administration held a meeting with the Conveners at the Police Headquarters, Accra on 19th July, 2021. All matters relating to the “special event” was discussed and agreed, including the routes and COVID-19 protocols.
The Police and Conveners will continue to deliberate.
It has been revealed that the “Fix the Country” campaigners now have the green light to go on demonstration as their protest has been slated for August 4, 2021.
“Fix the Country campaigners and the Police have come into agreement that, on the 4th August, they will have the opportunity to demonstrate”.
The planned protest was in limbo after the police indicated that it could not provide security due to the COVID-19 pandemic – a development the conveners of ‘FixTheCountry’ described as very disappointing.
However, the organizers, in a statement, said they have finalized processes with the Ghana Police Service.
The protesters are expected to converge at the Obra Spot near the Kwame Nkrumah Circle at 6:30 am with the march to commence at 8:00 am.
They will march through the principal streets of Accra and finally end at Blackstar Square in strict adherence to the covid-19 safety protocols.
“The protest march will go through the Kwame Nkrumah Avenue, to Farisco Traffic Lights. We will then take a left towards TUC, then continue on the road leading past Kinbu Senior High School to join the John Evans Atta Mills High Street.
“We will then proceed to Independence Square, where the Crowd will be addressed and subsequently dispersed. Obra spot (Circle) — Farisco Left — TUC — Kinbu Senior High School – Centre for National Culture – to Independence Square,” part of the statement read.
