Ernesto Yeboah a Convener of the #FixTheCountry protest, is angry at President Akufo-Addo’s comments on the victory of the governing New Patriotic Party in the 2024 polls.
His anger is due to comments by President Akufo Addo during the NPP 29th anniversary celebration on Thursday, August 5, 2021, President Akufo-Addo said “today, the challenges that confront our country, the difficulties that we have been plunged into by the Covid-19 pandemic are going to give us the opportunity to grow stronger and stronger, and that strengthening of our party and its organs means one thing, I am very confident of it that on December 7, 2024, the new NPP presidential candidate is going to win the election.”
But an incensed Ernesto Yeboah, who is one of the leaders of the Economic Fighters League, slammed the President’s comments saying they are insensitive, considering the current “hardship” in the country.
“They are not thinking about us. Who is thinking about election 2024? We want jobs, bread and many others. This is all they care about in these challenging times. Hearing these things make us angrier.”
“They keep pinning everything on Covid-19. They should give us a break,” he added.
Urging the youth to resist attempts by politicians to steal their future he noted, “they are stealing our future, for a people who have suffered slavery and colonialism. In fact, these are not leaders, they are enemies. We should resist these arrangements to cripple us. The current system we are running breeds charlatans. Let’s change the system and see if anything better will come out of it.”
Leaders of the #FixTheCountry movement are putting in efforts to earn signatures of one million Ghanaians to push for a new constitution having said the current supreme document governing the country breeds ‘charlatans’. They say a new constitution will represent the hope of Ghanaians.
