Convener for #FixTheCountry movement Oliver Barker-Vormawor has resolved to continue in his quest for a better Ghana despite the open attacks and oppression, especially from government machinery.
Speaking during his first public address after his ordeal with the police, he indicated that the movement will not be forced to give up in its fight for a better Ghana despite the intimidations.
He indicated that though he was tortured and subjected to inhumane conditions while in police custody, that has strengthened him to stay on course to challenge systems that do not auger well for the collective wellbeing and prosperity of Ghanaians.
“They cannot impoverish us and threaten us that if we demand anything different, it means that we want the end of our democracy. We will show Ghanaians not only the urgency but also our patience. The patience of our activity,” he said.
Mr Oliver Barker-Vormawor was apprehended by the police on February 11, 2022, over claims that he had threatened to cause a coup if the government went ahead to pass the Electronic Transaction Levy.
After weeks of a legal tussle, the Tema High Court granted Mr Barker-Vormawor bail in the sum of GHS2 million and two sureties after above 35 days in custody.
