#OpenUGMCNow: An Amazing Win For Social Media Activism


Finally, something good for Ghanaians and social media pipos to celebrate…

Yes, it’s a win and shows that citizens can drive change and get their leaders to do their bidding.

The campaign, #OpenUGMCNow begun with the sole aim to get the government to open the University of Ghana Medical Centre.

That took an entirely different turn when Reginald Sekyi-Brown was arrested after he raised a placard in protest when the First Lady, H.E Rebecca Akufo-Addo was delivering a speech at the sod-cutting ceremony of a new pediatric and intensive care unit at Korle Bu.

But, now the government has given in to the demands and a committee will start the process of recruiting personnel who will work at the facility.

Hopefully, by the end of July 2018 people would have been employed to work at UGMC.

“Government has additionally secured funds to construct the Phase 2 of the project which will enable it to function optimally,” a government statement signed by the Deputy Minister of Information, Curtis Okudzeto said.

Social media gets results…
