On Wednesday, August 4, scores of aggrieved Ghanaians hit the streets of the Capital City in protest against the governance of the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
The protesters have been complaining bitterly about how the citizens' living conditions have been aggravating day by day, particularly under the President's second term.
They embarked on a demonstration dubbed '#FixtheCountry' to petition the President to up his performance with regard to improving the lives of Ghanaians and developing Ghana's economy.
Some of the placards that the protesters held during their street protest were inscribed, 'Ghana is the most religious yet most corrupt', ‘If Ghana was your personal property, would you run it like this?’, 'No to Nepotism, Family and Friends Government', 'Fix Dumsor' among others.
Touching on the '#Fixthecountry' campaign during a panel discussion on Peace FM's 'Kokrokoo' programme, the former Acting General Secretary of the Convention People's Party (CPP), James Kwabena Bomfeh lauded the conveners and participators for not rioting on the streets.
He applauded them for the peaceful protest saying, "you can't control all the voices but largely you want to applaud the demonstrators for comporting themselves".
