Some indigenes of the three Akyem divisions have converged at Asamankese in the Eastern Region to demonstrate against the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, for describing actors in the Agyapa deal as ‘Sakawa boys’.
The former president had shared an article written by Bolgatanga Central Member of Parliament Isaac Adongo regarding the controversial gold royalties deal.
The demonstrators feel the action by the former leader is distasteful and encourages tribal politicking in the country.
On Wednesday morning, vehicles from Oda, Akyem Swedru, and its environs arrived at Asamankese for the demonstration.
The demonstrators, from Akyem Abuakwa, Akyem Bosome, and Akyem Kotoku, were clad in black and red attires with placards bearing inscriptions some of which read: ‘Mahama is shameless’, ‘This very dangerous talk must end’, ‘Ghana needs progress not visionless Mahama’ and others.
A huge security presence from the Ghana Police Service arrived for action.
