Kwaku Sintim-Misa (KSM) has called on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to resolve the issues facing the country because he is in power.
KSM made this assertion during an interview on TV XYZ with Agyeman Prempeh.
During several interviews and rallies before the 2008 elections as the then leader of the opposition NPP, Akufo-Addo called out the Atta Mills government and asked that the economy and the country be fixed.
The late Atta Mills defeated Akufo-Addo during the 2008 Presidential Elections making the latter the de facto opposition leader.
In the recent interview, KSM stated that President Akufo-Addo is in charge of the country, and has to solve the challenges facing citizens as he said to the president at the time when he was in opposition.
“Yes! he told Mills that ‘fix the economy so it's not anything new. Why are we Ghanaians pretending that we haven’t heard of this before? Nana Addo was the first to say it. He told Mills that there was hardship in the country so fix it,” KSM said.
On Tuesday, May 8, 2021, YEN.com.gh reported that the Supreme Court quashed the High Court injunction on the #FixtheCountry protest.
It will be recalled conveners of the social media protest dubbed #FixTheCountry were set to hit the street on May 9, 2021,
They wrote to the police to notify them of their intention to storm the streets of the capital in demand of an end to the excruciating hardships in the country.
The police, however, secured an ex parte injunction against the massive demonstration. The campaigners filed an application at the Supreme Court seeking to set aside the High Court order.
The Supreme Court’s ruling paves the way for the organizers to go ahead with the demonstration. The conveners and some unhappy Ghanaians on Twitter have been venting their anger over what they say is the failure on the part of successive administrations to improve the lives of the citizenry through the hashtag, “Fixthecountry.”
