The inter-Party Coalition for National Sovereignty (IPCNS) a political pressure group, says it will embark on a demonstration in Accra on Thursday, February 7 to protest against what it describes as the breakdown of security in the country.
The coalition is made up of political parties, including the NDC,GCPP, CPP, Progressive People’s Party (PPP), APC and the PNC. According to the group, the open display of impunity and acts of violence instigated by pro-NPP vigilante groups in the wake of last Thursday’s Ayawaso West Wuogon by- election had reached an alarming proportion, therefore, necessitating an immediate and effective remedial action before the unthinkable happens. It made this disclosure at a news conference in Accra to express displeasure over the violent clashes last Thursday.
