Parade protest


Video: Massive demonstrations hit government in Ketu South

Accraisback is informed that a massive demonstration was held yesterday in Agavadzi Ketu South to send a strong message to government.

According to our sources in Ketu South, the residents were unhappy with the government's inaction since the sea has invaded their house and about to grab a major highway linking, Ketu South and Keta.

In the early hours of yesterday, at about 10am, the residents of Agavadzi and other affected areas clothed in red attires took to the streets amid the burning of tires and road blocks.

According to the organizers of the protests, they are prepared to demonstrate against government until Nana Akuffo Addo sends contractors to commence work on the sea defense project it has abandoned.

They also serve notice that the demonstrations will last until the weekends.

"We intend to be here for one week because we cannot continuously come and tell government repeatedly over one thing always we cannot be doing that.

He added "this is an insult to the people he sworn to protect and I think this time around His Excellency Nana Akuffo Addo, the people that you sworn to protect are suffering and so this is the time for you to show that love to them."

The works on the sea defense project in the area was abandoned by the current government, according to Abla Dzifa Gomashie, MP for Ketu South who also expressed concerns about the closure of the border.

Meanwhile, government has set up a Coastal Development Authority to address sea erosions in coastal communities, but as things stand, it appears government is giving priority to some areas as the sea erosion is a nationwide problem.

Critics claim the demonstrations are needless in this administration accusing the Mills-Mahama administrations and the NDC for not completing the project in its own "stronghold" for eight years in government.

But according to Accraisback fact check, in that eight years there was no demonstration as residents can see assurances and something happening on the ground.
