According to Yaw Barimah who founded the group to support Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP due to the hardship under John Mahama, what he and his group members are experiencing now under Akufo-Addo is worse than what they complained about under Mahama.

Going on his knees as part of protesters who thronged Kwame Nkrumah Circle for the Arise Ghana Demonstrations, Yaw Barimah urged Ghanaians to forgive him.

If the Kalyppo he drank is what is causing this mess, then I wonder what would have happened if he drank the other one” Yaw Barimah said as went on his knees.
