Ghanaians have embarked on a massive social media campaign for change over what they described as the ailing status of the country.
Under the hashtag #FixTheCountry, scores of Ghanaians have poured out their frustrations and challenges the ordinary citizen is faced with.
They have bemoaned the poor road network, lack of potable water, healthcare delivery, low salaries despite new tax levies and inconsistent power supply, among others.
Some social media users have also taken Ghanaians down memory lane by pulling out old tweets of President Nana Akufo-Addo’s promises to Ghanaians ahead of the 2016 elections.
Celebrities such as Efia Odo, John Dumelo and Yvonne Nelson have all joined the campaign and are pressing for change.
Efia Odo, who has posted a petition, urged Ghanaians to sign it and vowed not to stop the campaign until the desired result is achieved.
We will not stop until we get a resolution! #FixTheCountry— EFIAODO (@efiaodo1) May 3, 2021

As simple as that. Fix the crippling unemployment. Fix the street lights. Fix the erratic power supply. Fix the irregular water supply. Fix the killer roads. Fix the corrupt institutions. Fix the factories. Fix the educational system. Fix AGRICULTURE.

Government must show concern about the rising cost of living and harsh conditions prevailing in the country and do something about it.#FixTheCountry— Serwaa Amihere (@Serwaa_Amihere) May 3, 2021
At the end of the day if this works you will look back and say I made Ghana a better place. Kwame Nkrumah and the others fought for independence. Its our time to stand and fight for development. If not now when?? #FixTheCountry— KALYJAY 👻 (@gyaigyimii) May 3, 2021
