"This Really Touched Me" - Lawyer Francis-Xavier Sosu Speaks On This #FixTheCountry Banner

The #FixThe Country is currently underway as many Ghanaian youths furiously hit the street with diverse kinds of placards and banners to show the President of the land, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his New Patriotic Party (NPP) administration that they are not happy with how the country's affairs are being controlled.

One of the banners being used by the protestors has really touched the heart of the Member of Parliament for Madina Constituency on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Hon Lawyer Francis-Xavier Sosu. Every liberation from oppressors comes with a sacrifice and a price and some of the #FixTheCountry protestors believe that there is a probability that some might not return home.

This is because they can be killed for fighting for the younger generation but in case that happened, they should remember that they were fighting for the betterment of all Ghanaians. The banner that Lawyer Sosu was talking about is the one in your picture below:

And it reads "I may not return home alive from this 'Demo'. And if I don't, Mama, remember I died fighting for the betterment of the next generation".

This message is so touching. Dr Kwame Nkrumah and the other big six members fought really hard before they gained independence for us. These young guys are not fighting for independence but a New Constitution. Some of these youths believe that the 1992 constitution was created for a dictatorship leader and that was what was needed at that time but now things have changed, and a new Republic thus a 5th Republic need to be created now.

The current constitution gives the President too much power and corruption cannot be controlled. They believe a New Constitution will solve all these problems in the country. That is why you see #NewConstitutionNow under the banner.

This is what Lawyer Sosu wrote on his official Facebook page:

"This touched me.

Remember: “There is no act too small, no act too bold. The history of social change is the history of millions of actions, small and large, coming together at critical points to create a power that governments cannot suppress.”

Howard Zinn".
