#FixTheCountry goes Int’l; Ghanaians abroad join in the Campaign

Some Ghanaian youths living abroad have also added their voices to the call by Ghanaian youths across the country to the Ghana government to fix the numerous socio-economic challenges facing the country.

Last weekend, young people nationwide staged an unprecedented virtual demonstration on social media about the hardships in the country, after a Court injunction prohibited them from congregating in-person at the Black Star Square to hold their planned protest.

Ghanaian youths living abroad also joined in the online protest from their various cities as they also took photos of themselves wearing black, the prescribed attire for the Sunday May 9 protest, holding up placards containing messages of the challenges that have bedeviled the West African nation.

FixTheCountry is a fast growing online campaign by Ghanaian youths as their way of holding their government to account and to demand solutions of them [government] to national problems and better living conditions.

The #FixTheCountry hashtag has since birthed other hashtags like #FixItNow, #WeAreAngry, #NameAndShame, #FixingTheCountry, #FixMotherGhanaNow among others, all with the one and the same objective of holding government to account and demanding a better Ghana.

The campaign has so far forced the Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and the Finance Minister Mr. Ken Ofori-Atta to respond to some of the concerns raised by the youths.
