Police in the region have officially written to them to suspend the demonstration due to the president’s visit.

But organisers have told Pulse.com.gh that it is too late to call off the protest scheduled for today due to resources already invested into the protest.

Wearing red armbands and attires, with placards with the inscription "JM must go", "Mahama Wahala, wahala Mahama", the protesters have begun marching through the principal streets of Tamale, demanding for a reduction in electricity tariffs to at least 50 percent.

The coalition, including the NPP, CPP, PPP, NDP, and APC have earlier argued that the demonstration is to let the government know that the plight of residents has worsened as a result of high utility tariffs.
