Asogli Demonstration Suspended


The planned demonstration, by the chiefs and the youth of Asogli State in the Volta Region, has been suspended.

The youth of the area had, with support from the traditional rulers, threatened to embark on a demonstration today due to what they say is the lack of development in the region.

Citi News’ reporter in the Volta Region, Akpablie-King Norbert, reported that the decision was taken after a meeting between the sub-chiefs and the paramount chief of the area, Togbui Afede, and government officials.

The chiefs had earlier threatened to embark on a demonstration with their subjects on Wednesday in Ho, if they did not see visible signs of government’s commitment to address their development needs.

Citi News reports have revealed that the government officials had pleaded with the chiefs to call off the demonstration, asking to be given a month to address the concerns of the people.

A few residents of the area, who spoke to Citi News, stated that they were not pleased with the news that the demonstration had been called off.

They added that they would hit the streets if they don’t see any improvement in their situation soon.
