Sam George to 4 June demo organisers: Think with your head

The MP for Ningo-Prampram, Sam George, has kicked against a planned armed demonstration on 4 June, describing it as “a recipe for disaster.”

The police have blocked the demonstration because it contravenes the public order act.

“The service is of the view that the nature and character of the demonstration as intended, is inconsistent with the public order act,” the police said in a statement. “The service has reached out to the organisers to reconsider their proposal and work with the police towards the organisation of a lawful, peaceful and successful demonstration.”

For his part, the opposition MP, George said no government, irrespective of political persuasion, will allow a demonstration of that sort.

“Armed demonstration? Certainly a recipe for disaster. No government worth its salt in Ghana, irrespective of political party, would allow an armed demonstration. Some times, we ought to think with our heads,” he tweeted.
