OUR MANIFESTO: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Celebrated award-winning actor, Prince David Osei, has added his voice to the campaign calling on the current administration led by President Akufo-Addo to fix the country.
Some unhappy Ghanaians through the social media hashtag, “Fix the country” have been venting their anger and frustration over what they say is the failure on the part of successive administrations to improve the lives of the citizenry.
The actor who campaigned for the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) and President Akufo-Addo during the 2020 general elections, argued that the country cannot only be fixed when Ghanaians change their attitude and mindset.
“Ghana will be better and well-fixed if we the citizenry fix ourselves first," Prince David Osei stated in a social media posted sighted by YEN.com.gh.
“We move!! #fixyourself and then Ghana will be fixed for all to enjoy!! #wemove..., “he added, asking: “Is it not the same human beings that work in government and a place of power? Are they not citizens of Ghana?? From the church to the flagstaff house is all corrupt!!! So, let’s fix ourselves first, that will translate to fixing our country Ghana!!! Amen.”
Meanwhile, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, descended heavily on the #FixTheCountry campaigners, describing them as propagandist tools of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
The maverick lawmaker, therefore, urged members of the governing New Patriotic Party to strongly challenge the narrative that the country is headed to the abyss under President Akufo-Addo.
According to him, the country has seen considerable progress under the stewardship of President Akufo-Addo, and that the president’s achievements need to be strongly and effectively communicated to the general public for their appreciation.
He, thus, urged the officials of the administration and the entire NPP fraternity to be very vocal in that regard.
“Ghanaians and the NPP should be vigilant. Use your brain and tell the people clamouring to fix it that the NPP has fixed it and we continue to fix it,” he urged while addressing the development on his NET 2 television.
In other news on YEN.com.gh, the planned street protest by the conveners of #FixTheCountry was hit a massive blow after police say they cannot provide the needed security for the demonstrators.
The Head of the Public Affairs Unit of Accra Regional Police Command, DSP Effia Tenge, said the demonstration is likely to be a super spreader of COVID-19 thus the inability of the police to provide security as reported by YEN.com.gh earlier.
She said as a result of the restrictions imposed by the government to curb the spread of the contagion, the demonstration cannot go ahead.
