Leadership of the March for Justice demonstration have presented a petition to the President at the Jubilee House.
In the petition, the NDC’s youth wing are demanding among other things:
- That government implements the recommendations of the Emile Short Commission report following the violence that characterized the Ayawaso West Wuogon Bye election.
- Ensure that all victims get justice as required by law. Victims of acts of violence from Ejura, Ablekuma Central, Odododiodioo, Banda etc must all not be denied justice.
- Make provisions towards providing decent jobs for the teeming youth of the Country through proper structural economic reforms and business support for enterprises of young people.
- Ensure the safety and security of all Ghanaians
- Stamp out corruption by prosecuting corrupt officials in government other than shielding them. We ask that there is a fierce urgency to halt the hopeless nature of cronyism that has crept into the Government.
- Take steps to fulfill campaign promises to the good people of Ghana and be truthful to the citizenry.
- De-politicize the Security Services introducing reforms to give true meaning to its independence. We charge that these reforms be led by experts in our country and not partisan appointees.
- Instruct the Attorney General and the Minister of Justice to improve the justice system and Wean the Judiciary off partisan political influence.
The National Youth Organiser of the NDC, George Opare Addo presented the petition to Deputy Chief of Staff in charge of Operations at the Jubilee House Emmanuel Adumua-Bossman who received it on behalf of President Akufo Addo.
Earlier on the NDC demonstrators had visited Parliament to present a similar Petition to the Leadership of Parliament.
