A group of Ghanaians living in the United States of America say they will demonstrate over the state of the Ghanaian economy when President John Dramani Mahama arrives in the country for the US-Africa Leaders Summit.
‘’… the demonstration is to show our [Ghanaians abroad] expression of unhappiness about the hardship in Ghana and the mismanagement of the country,’’ One of the organizers of the protest, Kwaku Ofori told Citi News.
He further mentioned that demonstration will take place at the US State Department.
He added that they are expecting people from Canada and all other states in the US to join the protest.
President Mahama and his wife, Lordina Mahama are expected to arrive in the USA on Friday for the Summit.
The President while in the US, will among other things, sign the second compact of the Millennium Challenge Account.
The compact will make available over 500 million dollars to support the energy sector.
There have a number of demonstrations in Ghana over the current state of the economy. The recent protest was staged by organized labour.
Protestors asked government to end the decline of the economy, improve living conditions and fight corruption.
Government has been under intense pressure over rising fiscal deficit and the depreciation of the cedi.
