The 2016 vice presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, will tomorrow April 6 lead the "Baamu Yaddaa" demonstration being organized by the Ashanti regional branch of the party in Kumasi against the Electoral Commission.

“Baamu Yaddaa” is an hausa phrase which means “we won’t agree.”

The demonstration is organized in collaboration with other opposition political parties and Let My Vote Count Alliance (LMVCA), Movement for Change (MFC) and Alliance for Accountable Governance (AFAG.

“Wednesday’s protest in the Ashanti Region will not be the end of this matter. It is only the beginning of a series of public agitations to force the EC to be professional, unbiased, wise and responsive to the concerns of the electoral process,” a statement released by Convener of the LMVCA on Sunday said.

“Some selected top people, including Dr. Bawumia, would then address the crowd at the converging point,” the statement said.

Organizers say the demonstration is to demand for free, fair, credible elections and a peaceful election.

It said the protest march would be used to charge the EC to do the right thing by making sure that the validation exercise – which virtually all the political parties in the country are in full support of – is carried out to make sure that the voter register is thoroughly cleaned to ensure peaceful polls.

In a similar demonstration last month in the Upper East Region, Bawumia called on Ghanaians to vote out the John Mahama-led administration because “Ghanaians are tired” of the festering corruption and hardship.
