The people of La Dadekotokpon have commended the leadership of the Economic Fighters League for their attempt at uniting the people through games.

This was during a Women’s game event organised by the Fighters La Dadekotokpon Cell as part of activities marking the Homowo festival. The games, which has generated wide interest, will go on for 8 weeks and an eventual winner will be chosen.

The Economic Fighters League is a grassroots movement mobilising the people of Ghana to fight for economic freedom.

Speaking at the event the leader of the movement, Ernesto Yeboah told the thick gathering that “economic freedom in their lifetime” was the reason why the Economic Fighters League has been born but to attain this it was important that the people are united.

Hinting of possible Regional demonstrations dubbed #FightForJobs, he said they were going to call for regional processions for all those who are unemployed to test the claim of mass unemployment in the country.

He urged all those who need jobs to heed when the call is made. The leader of Fighters also noted that apart from jobs the people also deserved quality education and health care and a good pension but these have been denied them because the system cares more for the greed of a few than for the basic needs of all.

The leader of the La Dadekotopon Cell, fighter Isaac Adjei, affectionately known as Sessay, urged all contestants to put in their best knowing that they are representing their clans, while also remembering that it’s just a game meant to unite the people.
