#OccupyJulorbiHouse protesters could still not get access to the Jubilee House to register their grievances to President Nana Akufo-Addo over his managerial ineptitude which has plunged Ghana into an unprecedented abyss of economic mess on the final day of their protest.
Like on Day 2, the demonstrators marched in the direction of the government building while holding placards, but they were stopped by a police blockade at the 37 Military Hospital. Unlike on Friday, September 22, the demonstrators chose a different route to get to the Jubilee House.
“There are ways of getting to the Julorbi House,” convenor Oliver Barker-Vormawor told 3News as the procession appeared to be retreating. But they grew wild as the police attempted to barricade and box them in front of the 37 Military Hospital.
In a tense environment, the demonstrators stormed the barricade to advance, only to turn around and head towards the Jubilee House.
On the same subject, Yaa Pono regrettably posted a sarcastic message explaining why he isn’t participating in the country’s ongoing #OccupyJulorbiHouse protest, which has incensed many Ghanaians.
He stated that rather than expending energy on what he called a “wasteful protest,” he would rather spend time eating banku and okro soup. He added that no one would have dared to urge him to attend the protest if he had wealthy parents.
The musician supported his arguments further by pointing out that the celebrities who are currently taking part in the protest would eventually be seen supporting the same politicians they are condemning.
“Me I no get time to protest, anka menoa Banku ne Nkruma wo fie, u go see the same ppl for rallies with their grandparents, artists going in for money as usual. If like my mother get 7 million pounds u go call me for protest,” Yaa Pono wrote on his twitter page.
