The Ghana Togo Solidarity Movement is formed to press home the sordid political situation in Togo. Since April 14, 1967 when Gnassingbe Eyadema ascended as President, the country has not seen real citizens’ participation in governance.
With the demise of Eyadema, many expected a return to the 1992 constitutional order with two terms presidential limit of five years per term but this was never to be.
With the imposition of Faure as president and the subsequent forced endorsement (not elections), he has served two terms and has appropriated a third with no attempt to respect citizens governance.
All peaceful manifestations to drum home the oppression and strangulation have been met with military assault and brutality. In recent times the opposition and allied groups have intensified peaceful demonstrations within the country to compel the end of the Dynastic Rule of 50 years.
The Ghana Togo Solidarity Movement is in full support of the struggling people of Togo and calls for an end to the situation.
The decaying situation is reference to mean the silent killings, the militarisation and the near refugee status that citizens are in.
We, in solidarity call for immediate cessation of the atrocities visited on these citizens whose only crime is to see to a restoration of Democratic governance.
On Saturday December 16, 2017 at 9am, we invite all Freedom, Peace and Justice lovers to a rally at the kawukudi Park in Accra.
