Ghanaians over the weekend held an online protest pushing for their country to be fixed by political leaders.
The protest was first anticipated to be held on the streets of the capital, Accra but the police secured a court order to restrain organizers.
But not relenting in their desire to get their messages across, the protest was moved online as citizens express frustration over the state of the country.
The anti-government saw people sharing photos of themselves holding placards with inscriptions of what they want to be fixed in the country.
They shared those pictures with the hashtag #FixMotherGhana and #FixTheCountry among others.
The responses from the government are extremely tone deaf. The list of ‘dodgy’ accomplishments does not address the growing income inequality or the joblessness.

Unemployment in Ghana is a national security crisis. We have only ONE Ghana. Create an enabling environment for young people to find employment. #FixTheCountry #WeAreAngry#AriseGhanaYouth #FixMotherGhana pic.twitter.com/6qqYerD11T

This is Sunyani Estate. This road leads directly to the former Regional Minister’s house! She never bothered to fix it. Her car passes here each and everyday! #FixMotherGhana pic.twitter.com/uHtcYN41V1

This road starts from spintex community 18 and joins the motorway in less than 10 minutes but the road is horrible. Kwame Nkrumah started this road many years ago but nobody has been able to finish it. Fixing this will decrease the amount of fuel used. #FixMotherGhana pic.twitter.com/0gUIqQdcWa

Ghanaians are hoping the political leaders take action and address the essential developmental challenges confronting the country quickly.
