“Our freedoms have been arrested by the ‘human_rights_defender’,” the Chief Policy Analyst at the Ghana Institute of Public Policy Options (GIPPO) stated in a Facebook post sighted by YEN.com.gh.

Dr. Wereko-Bobby's comments were in support of the #FixTheCountry online protest.

Tens of thousands of posts have been made on social media highlighting some of the challenges with the Ghanaian economy.

The angry youth threatened to demonstrate on Saturday, 9 May to pile pressure on the government to fix the country.

Meanwhile, two Citi FM journalists—Caleb Kudah and Zoe Abu-Baidoo have been arrested by operatives of the national security.

Some heavily armed national security operatives picked up Caleb Kudah on Tuesday, May 11, 2021, for filming within the premises of the National Security Ministry, which is known to be a restricted security zone.

According to a Citi News report, about seven heavily armed officers subsequently stormed the premises of Citi FM/Citi TV in an attempt to arrest, Zoe Abu-Baidoo, another broadcast journalist with the respected media house, whom they claimed had received files from Caleb Kudah.

Dr. Wereko-Brobby’s post generated series of reactions and we compiled a few.

Kwadjo Ahodo stated: “So the police high command can't roll out their own strategy unless the president tells them to do so?”
Nana Aduse Poku posited: “The Police hierarchy told you they take instruction from NADAA? Don't they have a mind of their own? Wofa paa deɛ, afei deɛ Akufo Addo hatred no adɔɔso dodo.”

Kaku Kyiamah stated: “Whatever! contradictions in words and action define the level of mental and physical development (or deformity) and ability to perform independently or otherwise. An underdeveloped or developing individual has challenges with the whole body including the mind. The managers of our country (elected, appointed and employed) accept that the country or people (including them) are underdeveloped or developing; so, let us go on with the whole 'national body' challenges - mental and physical.”
Linus Annobil Parker said: “Ghana paa nie! If you refuse ORDER from above, you're fired and replaced ‍♀️‍♂️”
Joe Nart added: “Culture of silence led by Akufo-Addo.”

In other news, President Akufo-Addo has accepted the nomination of Kissi Agyebeng as Ghana’s next Special Prosecutor, YEN.com.gh can report.

This comes after the former special prosecutor, Martin Amidu, launched a scathing attack on Agyebeng for being nominated for the office of the special prosecutor.

Amidu, who resigned as the country’s first Special Prosecutor in the runup to the crucial 2020 general elections over “political interference” warned in his latest epistles that Ghanaians must be worried over the nomination of Agyebeng.
