The Groups,  Vehicle and Asset Dealers Association of Ghana, National Concerned Spare Parts Dealers Association, True Drivers Union, Concerned Drivers Association, Ghana Committed Drivers Association and Chamber of Petroleum Consumers,  in a statement they jointly signed, said they would drive about two thousand luxurious vehicles in the protest.

In July last year, the Minister of Finance, Ken Ofori Atta in the mid-year budget review announced the imposition of a luxury vehicle import tax as part of a new policy to help raise more revenue.
He said the tax would be imposed on luxury vehicles with the capacity of 3.0 litres and above.
The implementation of the luxury vehicle law commenced August 1 after Parliament passed it to impose an annual levy on vehicles with high engine capacities after it was proposed by the government.
