PWDs express revulsion over poor working condition: Set to demonstrate on Sept. 14

Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) working with the Tolls and Routes Management Limited have said they will embark on a demonstration on Tuesday, 14 September 2021, in Accra, to protest poor working conditions.

 

The PWDs disclosed this in a notice to the Ghana Police Service.

 

They stated in a statement that: “It is in the interest of justice that the unfair treatment of persons with disabilities at various tollbooths should be condemned.”

 

“The process will take a method of all PWDs working at the various tollbooths holding placards on the side of the road from 37 Military Hospital, leading up to the office of His Excellency, Nana Akufo-Addo, at the Jubilee House to present a petition and take another route to the Ministry of Roads and Highways, also to deliver our petition letter to the Honourable Minister and Ghana Highway Authority,” the statement added.

 

The group said they will comply with all COVID-19 protocols.

 

“We will ensure orderly procession, COVID-19 protocols will be observed and so all protesters will be masked,” they said, and asked the Police to organise for the necessary security arrangements to ensure the safety of all who will participate in the demonstration.
