The campaign, which has garnered uncountable tweets and highlights some of these shortages, seeks to get the government to fix the country in areas such as the rising youth unemployment, dilapidated health system, skyrocketing home-renting structure, poor road networks among others.

Following the massive social media campaign, Vice President of the Republic of Ghana, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia in a response he posted on Facebook assured that the government is poised to get a solution.

“The job of government is to fix problems. This is what we have been doing since 2017,” Bawumia Posted on Facebook.

“For me, it’s just politics as usual because this same group of people were against most of government’s policies including the new voter registration exercise among others. Even the Free SHS and the creation of new regions were profusely rejected by these same people”, he added.
