#Fixthecountry

  • According to the group, former President Mahama played a key role in the Airbus scandal, hence he cannot be left unpunished.

    Written By Dr Kabiru Tia Mahama - I have monitored the development of the creeping tale of a supposed inertia by successive government in addressing the development needs of Ghanaians. #FixTheCountry.

  • If the status quo of corruption and poor work ethics among our leaders and citizens is not replaced with the spirit of nationalism, the problems of the youth and Ghanaians at large will remain the norm.

    Written By Baba Ali - A couple of months ago, thousands of Ghanaians, largely social media users, called for the fixing of the country. They did this by highlighting some of the hardships Ghanaians are facing. Is it indeed true that Ghanaians are facing hardships? Certainly, yes! But is it right to put all the blame on the current government? Certainly, no!

  • She told the court that the Attorney General is the principal legal head of the state and the matter before the court is one that is being brought in the name of the Republic.

  • As a matter of public record, the Vice President, Dr Bawumia, has set these out in detail what the government has done and is doing. We can have a debate on the veracity of the claims that he has publicly set out.

    Written By Rodney N.Boateng - I am not a veteran of demonstrations, with only two under my belt after more than five decades on this earth. Looking back, I regret this and wish I could clock up a few more ‘demo miles’ to make up for the dearth.

  • The lynching of Ibrahim ‘Kaaka’ Mohammed, and the use of live ammunition on protesters demanding justice for his death, are but the latest examples of the notable escalation in political thuggery.

  • The main problem in our part of the world is that, the citizens are too polarized politically. We attach emotions, inclinations and attachments to every issue that arises. We therefore cease to look at issue holistically to see the general sense in them.

    There has been a plethora of views proffered by the proponents of each of the mentioned movements from the traditional social media platforms to the traditional media outlets.

Does one necessarily need to fix him/herself before the general agenda of nation building can take place? Does the fixing of a country include the fixing of the minds of the individual citizens?

    Within the past week, Ghana has been rocked by a never-before-experienced social media campaign, that is the #FixTheCountry Movement. The Movement has already galvanised support online and nationwide debate nearly culminating in a highly-anticipated street demonstration slated for last Sunday, May 9. The Movement cites recent hikes in taxes and fuel prices, as well as a semblance of ‘dumsor’ return, among other austere situations, as indicators of a myriad of problems confronting every sector of the economy which Government must urgently address.
