Covid 19 seems to have had one positive impact on Ghanaians. It is still very surprising to see Ghanaian youths very enthusiastic about growth and for that matter, the growth of Ghana.
Few weeks ago, the hashtag “FIXTHECOUNTRY”, was the order of the day. The youths, through this campaign, mounted pressure on the government to be more sensitive to the plight of Ghanaians.
This campaign caused the government, through the ministers of finance to address, through a press conference, the people of Ghana. Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the Vice President Of Ghana also through a Facebook post, assured the people of Ghana of the president’s dedication to fixing the country.
However, these interventions seem not to have worked, as some intellectuals termed President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo’s Government as a, “paper and pen government”.
The new trend, “#JohnMahamaBuiltIT” is the new talk on twitter. The initiators of this new hashtag is still not known.
However, lot of people seemed to have joined the trend by posting infrastructural projects which where started and completed by Former President John Dramani Mahama.
Currently, the hashtag is trending number two on twitter. Arguments are that, the current government, has performed better than the former, however, Ghanaians will be the judge of that.
