The youth is Awakened
Hundreds of disgruntled Ghanaians joined the FixTheCountry protest on August 4, to demand accountability, good governance, and better living conditions from the ruling government.
The FixTheCountry campaign, which began in May, has garnered massive attention and support since Ghanaian youth took to social media to highlight inadequacies in the country.
Although the government responded to the aggrieved youth by outlining initiatives it has implemented, including the Nation Builders’ Corp (NABCO), National Youth Entrepreneurship and Innovation Plan (NEIP) to build the human capital in the country, many still think the government has failed to deliver.
As such, Ghanaian youth demonstrated on August 4, 2021, to demand better living conditions from the Nana Akufo-Addo-led government.
The youth protested as the nation marked Founder's Day on August 4.
