Police file an injunction against Minority’s planned protest

Published

“We hope that the court will basically be on our side in terms of how important it is for us to protest and to make sure that the issues that are pushing us to protest especially the loss of 60.8billion Ghana cedis and its consequences on our economy and the impoverishment of the people of Ghana must move the court to allow this protest which is being led by the representatives of Ghana. “And we believe that this is important. But we’re very disappointed that the police would go to court in the first place,” the minority said.

The Ghana Police Service has sought an injunction against the Minority’s scheduled protest routes against the Governor of the Bank of Ghana and his two deputies.

On September 5, the Minority will attempt to march from Makola via Rawlings Park and Opera Square to the facade of the Bank of Ghana.

However, the police believe that the route is frequently congested with people and vehicular traffic and that taking it might jeopardise public order, public safety, and the operation of important services.

They had offered an alternate path beginning at the Parliament House and ending at the Independence Square, which the minority had rejected.

The injunction, to be heard on September 4, is intended to prohibit the minority from taking their preferred option.

In response to the injunction application, the minority called it a “breach of trust” and voiced outrage at the police’s behaviour.

They plan to defend their case and demonstrate along their favourite routes.

In 2019, the Attorney General launched an inquiry on NAM 1, accusing him of scamming hundreds of clients out of millions of Ghana cedis through his gold dealership enterprise. The case was adjourned numerous times until new charges were brought on August 30, 2023. Mr Appiah Mensah stated plans to unfreeze locked up cash of Menzgold clients in exchange for 650 for verification. Following that, he altered his intention to force former clients to obtain a verification access card in order to authenticate transactions and confirm claims, despite substantial public and consumer outcry.

Nana Appiah Mensah, the former CEO of Menzgold, also known as NAM 1, has pleaded not guilty to all 39 charges of wrongdoing.

Limited Voter Registration: Two people detained for attempting to register twice

Meanwhile, some party operatives are pleased with the outcome thus far.

Two people were detained in Asokore Mampong Municipality for allegedly attempting to double register in the current Limited Voters’ Registration Exercise.

According to Municipal EC official Angela Afriyie Osei, the two suspects were apprehended after being validated as people existing in the Electoral Commission’s database.

As a challenge to the procedure, Madam Angela Afriyie mentions duplicate registration and efforts to register minors.

“The challenge we have been facing is about the double registration. At times when applicants come and we interrogate them, they insist he or she hasn’t registered before but when they go to the biometric column then it will come out that the person has registered.

“At the moment, we’ve handed two to the police. On male and a female. Another issue is also with the registration of minors,” she indicated.

Meanwhile, some party operatives are pleased with the outcome thus far.

“So far, we are satisfied with the entire process except some few challenges but that aside, we are very much comfortable with the process. All in all, everything is great,” an agent told JoyNews.

Black Sherif prophesy: Prophet Nigel Gaisie makes u-turn

"We see in bits and pieces, and what I saw in the spiritual realm is Sherif Black, but any logical person can make projections and deductions from it." If I hear a prophecy about Ako and my name is Akosua, I will definitely act on it," he said in parables. Regardless, the man of God exhorted those who were convinced of the prophecy to fast and pray in order to avoid death. Prophet Gaisie, who dismissed charges that his doom prophecies concerning celebrities are only for fame, stated that he will quit making them public in order to prevent insults and derision.

Nigel Gaisie, the founder and head of the Prophetic Hill Chapel, has stunned Ghanaians by backtracking on his prophecy regarding artist Black Sherif.

Prophet Gaisie had a vision in which he witnessed the mother of musical sensation Black Sherif sobbing excessively in a post on his official Facebook page.

As a result, he pushed the musician to seek safety before December, implying his impending death.

However, in a recent interview, Prophet Gaisie clarified that the prophecy is for a particular Sherif Black and not the Konongo-based performer.

“We see in bits and pieces, and what I saw in the spiritual realm is Sherif Black, but any logical person can make projections and deductions from it.” If I hear a prophecy about Ako and my name is Akosua, I will definitely act on it,” he said in parables.
