As part of its protest plan, the National Democratic Congress Youth Wing (NDC YW) has outlined the routes. The protest was approved after the police initially denied the protesters' request for security. After successful negotiations between the two sides, the police approved the protest dubbed "A March for Justice" to take place. George Opare Addo, National Youth Organiser of the NDC, confirmed the time and place of convergence as 6:00 am at Accra Mall. From there, protesters will march to the Lands Commission via the Liberation Road and Opeibea House. Afterward, they will proceed to Flagstaff House via the Switchback road, then take the Arko Adjei interchange to Parliament House.COVID-19 guidelines will be strictly enforced and demonstrators will be kept safe.
"The leadership of the government appreciates the support Ghanaians, civil society organizations, and other political parties have shown for the street protest." "This shows that the majority of Ghanaians are in support of marching against the social ills this government has visited on us," stated the statement. At Jubilee House, the group will present a petition to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. Parliament House will also receive a petition similar to this one. People are protesting to demand justice for those "killed and brutalized by state-sponsored thuggery and or adventurism by police and military forces."
In addition, it is to demand social justice for the unemployed. Madina, Accra's Central Business District, Osu, and Lapaz were among the initial routes. Also, it appears they have changed their minds about petitioning the Inspector-General of Police at Police Headquarters after speaking to the police.
