Commercial motor (Okada) riders and head porters (Kayayees) have joined hundreds of Ghanaians hitting the streets of Accra for the demonstration dubbed ‘Yentua Demo’.
The protesters started massing up at the Obra Spot near the Kwame Nkrumah Circle Interchange for the street march against the Electronic Transfer Levy Bill around 6 AM, reports Power FM’s Papa Maxi.
The protest is being led by the Youth Wing of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in collaboration with other groups who share in the cause.
Some of the groups are the Coalition of Concerned Ghanaians (CCG), Concerned University Students Association, Justice for Ghana Movement among others.
Papa Maxi told Prince Minkah on Dwaboase that the demonstration was patronised by some big wigs of the NDC and non-political persons alike.
The Minority and some students groups and the business community have asked the government to drop the controversial bill since it will defeat the government’s digitization drive expected to promote financial inclusion.
