According to Punch, Leader of the opposition National Alliance for Change, Jean-Pierre Fabre told AFP during the protests:

For now, the Guinean and Ghanaian presidents are trying to have ‘appeasement measures’ taken so that the talks can start. The protests are going to continue until our demands.
