Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
The director of communications at Ghana Gas Company Limited, Ernest Owusu Bempah, has taken the conveners of the social media campaign ‘Fix the country’ to the cleaners for demanding improvement in the livelihoods of the citizenry.
In a scathing Facebook post on popular individuals who have joined the campaign, the vociferous communications director said he had been holding himself “from getting into the gutter with these self-styled comedians who dabbles in social media politicking.”
“Of course, this is the downside to social media; where below-average intelligence folks who can't read and understand English want to teach the president how to govern,” he stated.

Describing the conveners as “social misfits”, he said the noise being generated by these 'so-called celebrities' “is akin to a drunken behaviour.”
“What exactly have these celebrities fixed by themselves apart from their fake social media lifestyle and living on borrowed glory?
“Some of them can't even fend for themselves let alone fix their boring life. They go about borrowing from people to support their fakery and some are in debts and can't manage their lives and yet they are yelling at politicians?
“These guys need to fix their backward lifestyle and build something for themselves and get a life,” he stated.
The conveners and some unhappy Ghanaians on Twitter have been venting their anger over what they say is the failure on the part of successive administrations to improve the lives of the citizenry through the hashtag “Fixthecountry”.
They include Nana Aba Anamoah, General Manager of GHOne TV, Efia Odo, Yvonne Nelson, broadcaster Serwah Amihere, among others.
Tens of thousands of posts have been made on social media highlighting some of the challenges with the Ghanaian economy.
The online protest has been trending for the past 72 hours on micro-blogging platform Twitter.
In other news, 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.
