Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Ghanaian actor, John Dumelo has responded to critics of #FixTheCountry who are asking its conveners to fix themselves.
Under the rallying call, 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.
Dumelo is one of the public figures who have expressed support for calls by Ghanaians for the Akufo-Addo government to resolve the nation's issues. In turn, critics say he and other supporters should fix themselves first.
In a response to these comments from critics, the actor said: "Last year, I brought in excavators to fix a problem in my community. I was stopped by the government," reads the caption of photos he posted online.
"The rains are in again and the problem still persists. When I complain, they say I should fix my attitude before I can tell them to #FixTheCountry. Such arrogance!"
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.
Rallying under the trending hashtag, Ghanaians online took the Akufo-Addo-led government to task calling for solutions to the country's problems.
"Celebrity Adongo will collect 1 million Ghana cedis to lead NAM1’s scam and lose his/her voice when needed on real issues #FixTheCountry," tweeted former TV3 Presenter, Bridget Otoo.
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.
