Outspoken Ghanaian political activist, Kwame A-Plus has related the just ended #Fixthecountry Demo to a mere health walk.
Speaking on UTV’s United Showbiz, A-Plus, born Kwame Asare Obeng, a major critic of the Akufo-Addo’s government said the #fixthecountry demonstration had no impact.
According to him, he did not show up at the protest which took place on Founder’s Day, 4, August because the demonstration had no focus and plan of action.
“The era of shouting has ended. I don’t go jogging or keep fit; my understanding of exercising and demonstration are two different things… Let’s get serious in this country. What was the plan, what is the end game? You cannot change a constitution by holding a placard and standing by the roadside.
I agree there should be demonstrations in the country but I’m telling you that the demonstration must have an end goal. That is why we go to school to learn decentralization and local governance. It is important to create awareness but that has been created over and over again.
Next year, there are going to be district-level elections. What is the plan of the youth knowing the assemblymen and district committee are the parliamentarians for the district assembly? What is the plan of people to go and take assemblyman position so that they control the assembly?”
