The #FixTheCountry Demo witnessed hundreds of individuals trooping to the Obra Spot to partake in the much-anticipated street protest which begun on the morning of Wednesday, August 4, 2021.

Protesters clad in black and red register turned up early at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle to join “disappointed Ghanaians” who are calling for better management of the country.

Despite the stiff opposition greeted by the #FixThe Country protest, Convenors were finally given the nod by an Accra High Court presided over by Justice Ruby Aryeetey on Friday, June 25 to embark on the protest following a police injunction.

Observers said persons who joined in the demonstration we’re fully observing the COVID-19 protocol

Although there was little or no regard for social distancing, a majority of them have been seen wearing a nose mask which is mandatory at all public gatherings.

Some of the placards displayed had “Stop making foreigners look down on Ghana”, “Wake up sleepy old president”, “Stop the corruption in the judiciary”, “Fix our Education system now” boldly written on them.

The protest which is taking place on Founders’ Day is expected to end at the Black Stars Square in Accra.
