Singer Sista Afia has suggested that the #FixTheCountry campaign perhaps should have started before the 2020 elections.
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.
"I think we should’ve brought up #FixTheCountryNow before the elections dammmm," tweeted Afia.
Her tweet infers that a lot more would have been achieved with politicians trying to impress potential voters.
Her thinking has generally received endorsement with many thinking along that line.
"Herrh Waka asem ooooo. Like Ghana will turn in to Dubai before the election," wrote KpokpoFlex.
"They want us to as usual wait 4years b/4 do complete projects. We taya #FixGhanaNow," commented Deborah Tutua Babe.
FreduaAgyema, however, thinks now is a perfect time, writing: It'd have been fought on both sides and it wouldn't have survived. It'd have been seen as a political strategy. As they are trying hard to cast it now. The people have been resolute because we are in a "neutral" period in our electoral cycle."
