Protesters have hit the streets of Ghana’s capital Accra to demand the president resign over an economic crisis that has disrupted people’s livelihoods.
Led by Ghanaian lawyer Martin Kpebu, the protesters say the Akufo-addo-led government is responsible for the country’s economic challenges, the worst since independence in 1957 and that the ruling government has not delivered on its pledges.
Security has been deployed to maintain law and order.
Ghana’s economic woes continue as the country seeks a bailout from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for the 17th time. The bailout was necessary after the new electronic transaction levy (E-levy)– a 1.5% tax on all electronic transfers above ¢100– failed to yield expected results.
