Yvonne Nelson says citizens interested in seeing the energy crisis resolved should join the protest
The Greater Accra Regional Police command has approved of the requested date and the routes for the #dumsormuststop protest vigil against government’s handling of the power crisis in the country.
Actress, Yvonne Nelson confirmed this in a Facebook post saying, “Meeting with the Regional Police Commander done, join us on the 16th! A peaceful and calm vigil. Our voices need to be heard”.
Earlier this week, Yvonne Nelson and rapper Sarkodie, through their lawyers wrote to the Greater Accra regional police commander to notify him of their intentions to lead a protest vigil against the government to show their frustration over the poor power supply. Ms. Yvonne, who started the social media hashtag #Dumsormuststop, announced that every Ghanaian citizen interested in seeing the problem resolved should join the protest.
The May 16 vigil will see a lot of celebrities and aggrieved Ghanaians gather at the University of Ghana football field and proceed peacefully to the Green park opposite the Villagio at the Tettey Quashie Interchange.
