Video of 72 year old lady weeping on the streets of Accra over the unbearable economic hardship in Ghana and calling on President Nana Akufo-Addo to humbly resign over the matter has gone viral on the internet.
The woman says Akufo-Addo should step down to save the country from total collapse.
She was part of thousands of demonstrators who participated in the ‘Ku Me Preko Reloaded’ protest which came off today, November 5, 2022 in Accra.
The protest was led by private legal practitioner Martin Kpebu who is pushing for President Akufo-Addo to resign over Ghana’s current economic woes.
Coincidentally, Akufo-Addo led the original ‘Ku Me Preko’ demonstration in 1995.
Then, the high cost of living and particularly the imposition of Value Added Tax (VAT) triggered the demonstration.
