Ghanaians optimistic following successful #FixTheCountry demonstration


A cross-section of Ghanaians on social media have reacted positively to yesterday, August 4’s #FixTheCountry protest, with some describing it as a show of commitment to inclusive governance.

Some also say the demonstration will trigger the development of the country going forward.

The protesters were mounting pressure on the government to address what they termed as numerous challenges facing the youth and the rest of the citizens.

Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, took to his Facebook page to praise the resilient and determination of the young activists leading the #FixTheCountry movement crusade.

He hopes that the long-awaited march would yield positive result leading to a new inclusive development.

Meanwhile, the Acting Inspector General of Police (IGP), George Akuffo Dampare, has expressed gratitude to the police officers deployed for the #FixTheCountry movement protest for their dedication and commitment to maintain law and order.

In Addition, some journalists and media houses were chased away by some participants of the #FixTheCountry movement demonstration.
The protesters claimed the media houses misrepresented the crowd that had gathered for the demonstration, and also, spread false information about the #FixTheCountry movement.

This perhaps made the peaceful demonstration, which attracted thousands of people to the Obra Spot at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle in Accra.

However, the protesters have vowed to continue protesting each holiday till the country is fixed.
