It is the aim of every citizen is to live in his or her native country enjoying life to the fullest. Ghana is known to be one of the peaceful countries in Africa and the world. The country is also known to have one of the best Democratic governance.
The recent happenings in Ghana does not seem to have not gone down well with most Ghanaians and have taken the issue to social media (Twitter) for the for their voices to be heard and the matters addressed as soon as possible by the government. There is a myriad of problems the Ghanaian faces day in and day out which needs to be addressed. Issues such as increment in Value Added Tax (VAT) which has caused the rise in prices of goods and services in the country with no corresponding increase in salaries of Ghanaian workers. There are several issues that are being demanded to be fixed. These include but not limited to
- The issue of frequent power outages (“Dumsor”)
- The issue of poor road network
- The issue of poor healthcare
- The issue of mining in waterbodies
- The issue of increase in prices of goods and services
This has made living for citizens unbearable and hence cannot be silent any longer. The call on the government to fix the country has received support from the masses with the hashtag (#FixTheCountry) which has over 153, 000 tweets as at10:02 am this morning and is trending in Ghana and worldwide. The tweets just cannot stop coming in and would hit a milestone in matter of hours. The aim is to put government on its toes and get the problems solved. Several Ghanaian personalities have also joined the call made by the citizenry.
We hope the government take actions and get the problems of the country solved in the shortest time.
