A group of Ghanaians rallied in the streets in New York in the United States on Thursday to protest against President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo who is currently in the State for the 74th Session of the UN General Assembly.

The demonstrators chanted songs to the effect that they will vote out the NPP government in the 2020 elections.

Thet carried placards which read: "Ghana is unsafe", "President Akufo-Addo bring back the kidnapped T'di girls now", "Mr. Lomotey Nie, Akufo-Addo nie", "Chief corruption clearing agent", "Bring PDS fraudsters to book".

The Convener of the demonstration in the US, Evans Wilson, who spoke to ClassFMonline said the leadership style of the NPP has been poor.

According to him, the demonstrators were from Texas, Atlanta, Washington DC, Connecticut, Massachusetts and other states who have been following activities in Ghana and felt "so much worried about the insecurity and several issues which are not being addressed, thus, making Ghana unsafe".

The theme for the protest was "Insecurity, massive corruption, and nepotism under the current government".
