The Minority in Parliament has rescheduled its Tuesday, September 5, 2023 protest to the head office of Bank of Ghana with civil society organisations as a result of a court proceeding held on Tuesday, September 4, 2023.

The court was unable to give an instant ruling due to the weight of a preliminary legal objections raised by the lawyers of the Minority in Parliament and requested the indulgence of the Minority to give its ruling on Friday, September 8, 2023.

In a statement issued by the Minority Leader, Dr Atto Forson indicated that the route the Minority wants to take remain unchanged, as the objections by the Minority was as a result of the incompetent filed in court by the Ghana Police Service seeking to restrain the protest along the routes proposed by the Minority and its broad coalition of civil society group.

“As law-abiding citizens respectful of the judiciary, we have decided to reschedule our protest taking into consideration these developments”.

Again, the protest march is to call for the resignation of Governor Ernest Addison and his two deputies as a result of their gross mismanagement of the Central Bank which has occasioned an unprecedented loss of GHc 60.8 billion and a negative equity of GHc 55.1billon. Illegal printing of over GHc 80 billion and the mindset of this crisis, this reckless team is building a head office at the cost of over two hundred-fifty million when the public procurement authority initially recommended eighty-one million dollars.

The statement called on Ghanaians to remain resolute in the fight to protect the constitutional right to demonstrate and hereby assure them that the march to the Bank of Ghana Head office will certainly take place next week Tuesday.
