General News of Saturday, 8 May 2021Source: www.ghanaweb.comThe past week has seen the meteoric rise of the youth in Ghana charging authorities in government to be up and doing in order to deliver better amenities by starting a #FixTheCountry campaign. The hashtag which started on social media has garnered over 800,000 reactions from Ghanaians across the world but has been met with criticisms from a section of government officials. But reacting to the development, Majority Leader and Minister for Parliamentary Affairs Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu described the social media campaign as “an enclave of unnecessary discourse”. Originator of the #FixTheCountry campaign, a 24-year-old social media influencer and national service personnel noted that the sorry state of several systems in the country and unemployment rate are but a few reasons which forced him to start the movement. Joshua Boye-Doe, known on social media as KalyJay maintained on GhanaWeb’s #SayItLoud that there were no political affiliations to the #FixTheCountry campaign.
