The Accra Regional Command of the Ghana Police Service has declined a request from some persons including broadcaster Blessedãã Godsbrain Smart, popularly known as Captain Smart, and #FixTheCountry convener Oliver Barker-Vormawor to demonstrate.
The Police said the nature and character of the demonstration as intended, is inconsistent with the Public Order Act hence the decision to stop it.
The demonstration would have taken three days and allowed the leaders to address the nation on GTV.
