The Ghana Police Service has secured an injunction against a planned protest by members of the social media movement, #FixTheCountry.

The Police had filed an ex-parte motion seeking an injunction against the planned protest.

The court ruled that the planned protest is prohibited until the restriction on public gatheringd is lifted.

“It is hereby ordered that the organizers/conveners of Fixthecountry protest march, their associates, officers, agents, assigns, and workmen are prohibited from embarking on any demonstration on Sunday, 9th May 2021, or any other date until the restriction on public gatherings is lifted by the appropriate authority,” the order secured by the police stated.

The Greater Accra Regional Police Command had earlier indicated that it cannot sanction the proposed #FixTheCountry protest as it goes against the ban on public gatherings.

The group has been expressing its displeasure over the failure of successive governments to improve the living standards of Ghanaians on Twitter using the hashtag #FixTheCountry.

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