Sergeant Prince Dogbatse, Public Affairs Officer of the Volta Regional Police Command, says the Command has not endorsed a planned demonstration against the President’s candidate, Dr Archibald Yao Letsa as the new Regional Minister.
The demonstration named, “Enough will be Enough”, was intended to communicate the failure by some “obscure gathering” calling itself “Volta NPP Grassroot for Justice” in the area on the renomination of Dr Letsa as Volta Regional Minister by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
Sergeant Dogbatse in an official statement duplicated to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) uncovered that the Command had data on the proposed demonstration to be hung on Monday, January 25.
He said albeit the Police will undoubtedly give security to “well behaved residents” appropriately coordinated to take part in real exercises including demonstrations, the upsurge of COVID-19 cases in the locale couldn’t permit the Group to set out on their proposed activity.
The Public Affairs Officer, who said the occasion could jeopardize general wellbeing and security, forewarned all residents to observe the order and be cautioned of the results of resistance.
“The Command per any appropriately coordinated uncommon occasion by individuals from the general population is compelled by a solemn obligation to give security to honest residents to take part in such genuine exercises like demonstrations and parades.
He said the Command “in this crucial time” was resolved to help other key partners in containing the pandemic to ensure general wellbeing and security.
Sergeant Dogbatse encouraged the general population to keep on sticking to COVID-19 security conventions, for example, the legitimate wearing of the face or nose veils, social removing, washing of hands consistently and purifying hands frequently to contain the spread of the destructive pandemic.
The Volta area as of now has 106 dynamic cases and two passings inside about fourteen days with cases basically inside Ho, Hohoe, North Tongu and Ketu North.
