"We want JM back"; angry Bawku youth welcome Akufo-Addo with demo

Angry residents of Bawku welcomed President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo into the Upper East Region on Wednesday, 14 August 2019 with a demonstration.

The President is on a tour of the Northern and Upper Regions.

The youth held placards and rode motorbikes along the route used by the President’s convoy to display their displeasure.

Some of the placards read: “kick the thieves out”, “Almost three years but no show”, “We want our 1 million dollars”, “2020 we go show Nana”, “JM is coming back” among others.

The demonstrators accused the President of neglect and betrayal.

The youth were particularly incensed with the stoppage of work on the Bolga-Bawku-Pulimakom road.
