Spare parts dealers at Abossey Okai in Accra, have postponed their planned demonstration against the government.
They were supposed to march on Friday, 21 September.
Maxwell Adu Takyi, PRO of the group, told ClassFMonline.com on Thursday, 20 September that: “We have postponed the demonstration because the scheduled date falls on a holiday. We will announce the new date next week.”
He added: “The demonstration will definitely come off.”
The group’s members, on Tuesday, served notice that they were going to demonstrate over “government’s insensitive increase in taxes, high import charges and the inability to stabilise the dollar as promised.”
A statement signed by Kwabena Agyei, Chairman of the Association said: “The above-mentioned issues coupled with government’s introduction of its Bench Mark Value (BMV), which has almost tripled charges at the ports, have overburdened our members.
“We, therefore, wish, as law-abiding citizens, to register our dissatisfaction toward the government through a nation-wide demonstration which starts from Accra on the above-mentioned date.
“We wish to reiterate our commitment towards a peaceful demonstration.”
