Bulldog has chastised Ghanaians following the #fixthecountry campaign that is going on against President Akufo-Addo and his government.
In a post sighted by YEN.com.gh, Bulldog says Ghanaians are getting exactly what they voted for.
By his post, he indicated that Ghanaians voted Akufo Addo’s government for hardship and that is exactly what they are experiencing.
His post has triggered mixed reactions with some fans supporting him while others believed to be members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) attacked him.
Derby and Konadu, for instance, wrote that the situation could have been worse if the NDC had won power:

Others, however, defended Bulldog:
Ghanaians started the #fixthecountry campaign to register their displeasure at the president following the nearly 5% increment in fuel.
Some celebrities also joined the campaign calling the president to order.
Following the hullabaloo this caused, the National Petroleum Authority (NPA), has reduced the fuel margin by 8 pesewas per litre at the pump.
This is taking effect on Wednesday, May 5, 2021, according to a communique issued on Tuesday, May 4, 2021.
This reduction means that the recent 17 pesewas increase per litre announced by the NPA has been reduced to 9 pesewas per litre.
Consequently, the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) has said it will increase transportation fares by 20% effective Thursday, May 6, 2021.
The Industrial Relations Officer for the GPRTU in the Greater Accra Region, Alhaji Abass Imoro, has asked the public to expect an increment in transport fares.
He said the decision to increase the transportation fares is a result of the increment in fuel prices. Alhaji Imoro said this is the only way to ensure that transport operators survive.
“After the budget, we started planning also the way to go about it and now they have come up with the petrol, we are waiting for the road toll. It is also on the way coming.
Definitely, tomorrow, if God permits, our leadership will come up with a very reasonable percentage [transport fares] as to how to move forward," he said.
