DumsorMustStop: Ghana Police Service invites conveners ahead of intended demonstration


The Ghana Police Service has invited the conveners of the #DumsorMustStop demonstration to discuss the modalities of their intended action.

This comes after the conveners announced their notice of intention to exercise their constitutional rights in their letter dated May 9, 2024.

The letter was subsequently referred to the Accra Regional Command.

In a letter dated May 13, 2024, the Deputy Commissioner of Police and Accra Regional Commander, Arhin Kwasi Annor, invited the campaign leaders for a meeting at the Regional Police Headquarters in Accra.

The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, May 15, 2024, at 1400 hours.

“I refer to your letter on the above subject dated 09/05/2024 addressed to the Inspector General of Police (IGP). The IGP has referred the above letter to this Command to handle.

“In view of the above, the Regional Commander invites you (conveners) to a meeting in his office on Wednesday, 15/05/2024 at 1400 hours to discuss modalities pertaining to your intended demonstration,” the letter read.

The conveners, including notable figures such as Yvonne Nelson, Selorm Dramani Dzramado, and Henry Osei Akoto, have been asked to contact Staff Officer Supt. Mr. Isaac N.K. Yeboah for further clarification regarding the meeting.

The #DumsorMustStop campaign is a citizen-led movement in Ghana that protests against the frequent power outages known as “Dumsor.”

Initiated in 2015 and led by figures like Yvonne Nelson, it calls for government accountability to resolve the power crisis.

The campaign has seen a resurgence in 2024 following a series of recurring power outages that have plagued the nation since early 2024.
