Pictures From Fix The Country Takoradi Demonstration

The Fix The Country Campaigners have carried out yet another successful demonstrations at Takoradi in the Western Region of Ghana. This demonstration is the second of many more to come across the 16 regions of the country. The first Fix The Country protest was held in Accra on August 4, 2021 which was also a holiday.

The leadership of the #FixTheCountry Campaigners and followers petitioned the government to fix the governance system, corruption, unemployment and kidnappings within the jurisdiction Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis.

Oketekyere Afrifa Mensah, a profound and dedicated member of the movement, said, “we are tired of substandard governance. We are tired of governance that has no plan. We are tired of directionless leadership.”

Ernesto Yeboah, the leading Campaigner, of the Economic Fighters League ( EFL ), also said they were protesting against a “false” and “rotten” system “that permits the educated elites stealing of our resources.”

“What you are viewing here today is a confirmation of the boiling grievances of the youth and good citizens of Ghana,” he said.

#FixTheCountry movement started to take form in May 2021 after gaining trust on various social media platforms.

It watched young Ghanaians citizens demand on social and economic reform as well as better governance.

The online movement erupted and culminated in its first physical protest, also on a holiday, on August 4, 2021.
