Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
In the viral video YEN.com.gh sighted, a group of Ghanaians initially started off nicely by welcoming him to Germany and were even trying to fraternise with him.

Another person could be heard asking the president to fix the country so that they could come back home to Ghana.
They also added that Africa with all of its mineral resources cannot do anything and keeps reaching out to other countries to borrow.

Ghanaians in Germany exercised their constitutional rights
Commenting on the ambush of some Ghanaians in Germany laid on Akufo-Addo, the convenor FixTheCountry, Oliver Berker Vormarwor said, it was not wrong for Ghanaians to have laid ambush on the president.
According to him, the freedom of speech is not limited to anyone and that the decision of the group of people to hold a protest demanding what needed to be done in their home country was in the right direction.
Oliver said the country's constitutional rights gives them room to do as they please, as long as it is in the confines of the lae
Hundreds of disgruntled Ghanaians joined the ongoing 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 went demonstrating on August 4, to demand better living conditions from the Nana Akufo-Addo-led government.
