Dr Palgrave Boakye-Danquah, the government’s spokesperson for security and administration, has advised Ghana not to emulate the bloody youth demonstration in Kenya that has claimed many lives.

According to Dr Palgrave Boakye-Danquah,the youth in Kenya could use democratic way of registering their displeasure about the government rather than using violence to cause chaos in the country.

William Ruto was forced to rescind the financial measure that sought to impose certain taxes in the wake of widespread, violent protests that left at least 23 people dead.

However, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa asserted that President Akufo-Addo is the “chief architect” behind this controversial deal and declared that it’s time for Ghanaians to launch their own version of Kenya’s recent protests.

Mr Ablakwa urged Ghanaians to stay tuned for a major announcement soon regarding plans for a significant demonstration.

Dr Palgrave Boakye-Danquah insisted that such protests are not necessary even though the situation is not similar.
