The Former President of Ghana John Agyekum Kufuor has said it will be good for Ghanaians to fix themselves while the Government also fixes itself so that the economy can also be fixed
If it will be recalled, last month some unhappy Ghanaians vented their spleens over what many describe as a failure on the part of successive governments to improve the lives of the citizenry.
Mostly made up of the youth, tens of thousands of posts have been made on social media highlighting some of these inadequacies.
Despite efforts by government including the Nation Builders’ Corp (NABCO), National Youth Entrepreneurship and Innovation Plan (NEIP) and other commitments towards investing in the growing human capital, some Twitter users say the impact is not felt on the ground.
Dominant in the sentiments shared on Twitter are rising youth unemployment, dilapidated health system, skyrocketing home-renting structure, poor road networks among others.
“This is the right time for us to stand up and come together as one people to speak and let them [government] know that we are tired,” Joshua Boye-Doe, a social media user and initiator of the #FixTheCountry campaign said.
However, the former president John Agyekum Kufuor speaking on the issue with Kofi Adoma Nwanwani on Angel fm this morning said the economy will be better as soon as Ghanaians fix themselves
“If you Fix yourself, I fix myself the economy will be fixed”, he told Kofi Adomah Nwanwanii
