The #FixTheCountry protest is set to be migrated from social media to the streets of Accra.
The hashtag #FixTheCountry, since Sunday, May 2, 2021, has been used by Ghanaians, especially the youth, on social media to protest against poor governance and get Ghanaian politicians to implement policies that will solve a lot of the problems that Ghanaians are facing.
Sunday, May 9, 2021, has been chosen by conveners of the campaign for a protest march to exercise their democratic rights as citizens to express their frustration over poor governance over the years.
The conveners of the campaign are fifteen in number, according to the statement released on the upcoming protest march, and we have listed eleven of them below. Check them out:
