Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Television host, Efia Odo, has spoken to the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) about the ongoing #FixTheCountry campaign.
Over the past week, Ghanaians have been protesting virtually against the government led by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo over social and developmental issues in the country.
Odo, one of the public figures backing the campaign reiterated why she supports the cause during the interview.
"Why don't we have beds in hospitals? Why are children learning on the floor? These government officials, will they be happy that their kids are learning on the floor, That there are no tables, there are no chairs," quizzed Odo.
"We are asking for the basic things that a running government should have and we don't have those things. We're tired of it and we want answers now."
Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported that Odo had denied allegations that conveners of #FixTheCountry have been paid by John Mahama, the former President of Ghana.
On Tuesday, May 8, 2021, Odo and other supporters of the campaign notified the Ghana Police Service of their intention to embark on a demonstration against the government on Sunday, May 9, 2021. It was denied for COVID-19 restriction reasons.
Since then some people have made assumptions that the actions of the conveners are because they because been paid by Mahama.
“Which money have we gone to collect? All that is agenda? It’s fake. It’s false. We debunked all that, said Odo in a new interview with Zionfelix. [Sheldon] is a part of those who want to defame us. Where’s Mahama’s signature on that paper. There was no signature,” Efia Odo said.
