Ernest Owusu Bempah, the Director of Communications for the Ghana Gas Company Limited has expressed remorse for his heavy-handed comments targeted at the #FixTheCountry supporters.
Days ago, Bempah referred to the conveners of the campaign as "social misfits, self-styled comedians who [dabble] in social media politicking and people [who] can't even fend for themselves let alone fix their boring life."
He also claimed that celebrity supporters of the cause live fake lives: “What exactly have these celebrities fixed by themselves apart from their fake social media lifestyle and living on borrowed glory?"
In a Facebook post seen by YEN.com.gh, Bempah offered an apology to those he called names because of #FixTheCountry campaign saying he "is not against any free-thinking Ghanaian involved in any legitimate exercise to get government accountable to the people."
The response to the apology has been mixed, with some people commending him, and others disagreeing with the decision.
In other news, Sarkodie has been called out for what some say is his hypocrisy after he finally commented about the ongoing #FixTheCountry campaign.
For over a week, Ghanaians online have taken on the Akufo-Addo-led government, imploring him to resolve the issues facing the country. In a statement seen by YEN.com.gh, the Happy Day rapper stated that he has always been a supporter of the cause, and its conveners.
Sarkodie's statement was generally met with skepticism with many questioning why he hasn't released a song aimed at the government as he did under former President John Mahama and the National Democratic Congress (NDC.)
