The Greater Accra Regional Command of the Ghana Police Service has informed the organizers of an upcoming protest that the location they have chosen is deemed unsuitable due to security concerns.

Following a meeting held on May 15, 2024, between the organizers of the #DumsorMustStop vigil and the police, where notice of a protest scheduled for May 25, 2024, against the recurring power outages, known as dumsor, was served, the police issued a confidential notice to the organizers on the same day, May 15, 2024, stating:

“That the Jubilee House which is directly opposite the Revolution Square is the seat of Government and therefore a security zone, thus the protest and picketing at the Revolution Square may endanger public defence, public order, public safety and violate the rights and freedoms of other persons.”

The police further expressed security concerns regarding the midnight closing time. Consequently, they suggested relocating the protest to Independence Square, emphasizing their commitment to providing necessary support for the event.
