Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Celebrity support for the #FixTheCountry campaign is growing with the likes of Yvonne Nelson, Bridget Otoo, Serwaa Amihere, and many others joining the train.
Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported that actor John Dumelo had joined calls by Ghanaians for the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo government to resolve the nation's issues.
Under the rallying call #FixTheCountry, Ghanaians online took the Akufo-Addo-led government to task by outlining the various issues slowing the growth of Ghana, and its effects on citizens.
"Government must show concern about the rising cost of living and harsh conditions prevailing in the country and do something about it. #FixTheCountry," reads a tweet by Amihere
Otoo took a swipe at celebrities who have remained silent about the campaign: "Celebrity Adongo will collect 1 million Ghana cedis to lead NAM1’s scam and lose his/her voice when needed on real issues #FixTheCountry:
She also lashed out at the governing party led by President Akufo-Addo: "You have entrusted the resources of Ghana to a group lead by @NAkufoAddo It is Ghana’s resources and so Ghanaians have every right to demand the basics fixed! Water, electricity jobs... it’s that simple #FixTheCountry"
Nelson expressed her happiness about the campaign: "Im happy you guys are GETTIN it now! #FixTheCountry @NAkufoAddo [angry face emoji] for those who follow party colours......stay far away!
Efia Odo also bashed the government and other public figures who haven't voiced their support for the campaign.
"I’m so happy that the youth of this nation are finally tired of the bad governance and are deciding to speak against it. #FixTheCountry Will not just end on Twitter. We shall lead a protest and show our leaders that enough is enough."
"Your fans are tired and they need your voices. When it’s time to promote your works, you ask them to support, now it’s your turn to support them in this #FixTheCountry movement. The things going on in this country are affecting your fans and y’all decide to keep mute, OK," said Odo.
