Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Television host and comedienne, Afia Schwarzenegger, does not support the ongoing social media campaign #FixTheCountry.
Under the rallying call #FixTheCountry, Ghanaians online have taken the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo-led government to task by outlining the various issues slowing Ghana's growth and its effects on citizens.
However, Schwarzenegger believes citizens need to change their attitude before calling on the President to change the country.
In a video posted online, she said President Akufo-Addo does not necessarily have the power to change the nation as an individual, and that it takes a collective effort.
Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported that celebrity backing for the #FixTheCountry campaign was growing with the likes of Yvonne Nelson, Bridget Otoo, Serwaa Amihere, and many others joining the train.
John Dumelo previously expressed support for calls by Ghanaians for the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo government to resolve the nation's issues.
Rallying under the trending hashtag, Ghanaians online took the Akufo-Addo-led government to task calling for solutions to the country's problems.
Former TV3 presenter, Bridget 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 tweeted.
Actress Yvonne Nelson also expressed her happiness about the campaign: "I'm happy you guys are GETTIN it now! #FixTheCountry @NAkufoAddo [angry face emoji] for those who follow party colours......stay far away!
Efia Odo and other social media influencers on Tuesday, May 8, 2021, notified the Ghana Police Service of their intention to embark on a demonstration against the government on Sunday, May 9, 2021. The request has since been denied for COVID-19 restrictions reasons.
