The Minister for National Security, Mr Albert Kan-Dapaah, has met with the conveners of social media campaign dubbed #FixTheCountry.

The said meeting was held on Thursday, May 6, 2021.

This was made known by the Information Ministry on its social media platforms.

According to the Information Ministry, the said meeting was to afford the Minister the opportunity to dialogue with the conveners on their concerns.

The Information Ministry in a Twitter post said, “In acknowledging the healthy conversation that has been started following a social media campaign, #FixTheCountry, the Minister invited the group to explore further dialogue on their concerns.”

It further disclosed that Mr. Kan-Dapaah and the conveners agreed to dialogue further on their demands.

”The conveners, in turn, expressed their pleasure at the invitation and the level of seriousness with which their concerns have been taken by the government. ”

The #FixTheCountry hashtag has been in the social media trends in Ghana for about four days.

The hashtag has so far gathered over 600,000 tweets and other engagements on Twitter.

It was initially started by some young persons on Twitter, but some celebrities later joined the campaign to hold the government accountable.

An online petition which was launched to support the cause has gathered over 3,000 signatures.

They cited ‘dumsor’, unemployment and poor healthcare systems as proof of successive governments’ mismanagement of the country.

They planned a demonstration on May 9, 2021, but their request for police protection was turned down, as the police insist that the gathering would be illegal in the fact of Covid-19 laws.
