#FixTheCountry campaigners have hit the streets of Accra today to demand that government addresses the many economic and social challenges facing the country.

As at 6am, some participants had already stormed the Obra Spot near the Kwame Nkrumah Circle to commence the march.

The protestors clad in red, gold, green and black outfits, are holding placards with inscriptions stating “Stop the cathedral and use the proceeds to build hospitals, schools, roads and comfortable houses for the police”, “Ghanaians deserve better.”

The protest will be climaxed at the Black Star Square in Accra.

Meanwhile, the Acting Inspector General of Police (IGP), Dr George Akuffo Dampare, has pledged to provide maximum security during the #FixTheCountry protest.

Also, conveners of the movement have pledged to ensure that all protestors adhere to all the Covid-19 safety protocols.

Background

In the last few months, Ghanaian youth have taken to social media to demand accountability, good governance, and better living conditions from government.

The FixTheCountry advocacy which began in May has garnered huge support since campaigners, largely the youth, started highlighting some of the inadequacies in the country.

In its response to the aggrieved youth, government outlined initiatives it has implemented, including the Nation Builders’ Corp (NABCO), National Youth Entrepreneurship and Innovation Plan (NEIP) to build the human capital in the country.

But the protestors say the impact of these initiatives has not been felt on the ground.

Earlier attempts by the campaigners to embark on a street protest were foiled by the police through a court action but the campaign continued unabated online.

Subsequently, the court dismissed the injunction explaining that the application is moot because, May 9, the date for the protest, which the police did not agree to, has long elapsed.

The Conveners of the campaign then finalised details and scheduled the first protest march for August 4, 2021.
