Ghana has been hit by the worst energy crisis in its history with the national power distributing company, Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) resorting to rationing, leaving most residents without electricity for over 24 hours per every 36 hours in the last three weeks.
Buoyed by the presence of the 2016 Presidential Candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akufo-Addo, his running mate, Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia and some Members of Parliament (minority), Ghanaians across all social strata marched through major streets of Accra in protest.
By 8.00 am, people have started trickling into the Obra Spot at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle, the take-off point of the demonstrators. Aggrieved Ghanaians from other regions joined the Accra march.
Hundreds of traders at the Makola Market abandoned their businesses and joined the protest apparently to vent their frustrations with the hardship occasioned by frequent power outages and stringent economic conditions in the country.
A trader who introduced herself as Maame Agnes bemoaned the hardship saying, “the situation is unbearable. It has never been so bad.”
The protest was orderly and personnel of the Ghana Police escorted them apparently to curb any impunity. It looked more like a carnival as loud music blared from the loud speakers and several of the women danced to the beat.
