Below are some reactions Ghanaians had concerning this report.
@thejjfreeman_ poured out his heart in the words:
We’re fighting for the Children! Students! Workers! Pensioners! People in the formal sector and the informal sector! We’re fighting for You and I! We’re fighting for Us!
@dentehmaxwell mentioned that:
I just realized that #FixTheCountry has been blocked. #FixthecountryGhana will trend now

Nobody reported it; the hashtag was abused.
In a post sighted by YEN.com.gh on her personal Twitter handle, Efia indicated that there is no hidden political agenda behind the activism being championed.
She further questioned why some people would deem that there is a political drive behind the movement when all that is being demanded is a better environment to work and live in.
