Speaking during a small gathering, the Chief of Chiraa, Barima Minta Afari, indicated to Ghanaian youth that fixing Ghana is a collective responsibility.
Citing examples of citizens which are detrimental to the development of the nation, the Chiraa Chief stated that
“If you want to fix Ghana and you are into galamsey, can you do it? Our water bodies have been destroyed through galamsey. How do we fix a country with this attitude?” he queried.
While on the subject of leadership and fixing the country, famous Ghanaian media personality, Captain Smart, who is known for his powerful and controversial demands on authorities to do right, joined the Fix The Country demonstration, as YEN.com.gh earlier reported.
In a video that is now circulating on social media, Captain Smart was captured as he poured libation to Ghana's first President, Dr Kwame Nkrumah.
Captain Smart, while at it, told the late Pan-Africanist to bring his wisdom back to the leaders of Ghana because Ghanaians are in pain, due to mismanagement of the country's resources.
