Front liners of the #Fixthecountry movement have launched a fresh hashtag called #NameAndShame on social media.

With over 90,000 tweets the campaigners are tasking the government to fulfil its promises to Ghanaians. This time, the more targeted campaign has seen users sharing videos and images of stalled projects and deteriorating conditions that need government’s support while calling out particular MPs and DCEs among other duty bearers.

Ghanaian youth who are dissatisfied with the conditions in the county are not relenting in their bid to demand accountability.

Despite an injunction secured by the police against the #FixTheCountry demonstration slated for May 9, the youth are unperturbed.

The demonstration was meant to amplify sentiments such as rising youth unemployment, inefficient health systems, high cost of rent, poor road networks among others.

Meanwhile, Majority Leader Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu has criticized the #Fixthecountry hashtag campaign saying the campaign lacks basis.

Speaking at the inauguration of an eight-member Advisory Board of the Ministry of Parliament Affairs in Accra, Mr. Kyei Mensah Bonsu said the discourse is unnecessary.

However, the Executive Director of the African Center for Parliamentary Affairs, Dr. Rasheed Draman says the concerns of #Fixthecountry campaigners if not addressed could affect government saying citizens have genuine concerns to ask for accountability from government.
