#NameAndShame is The New Campaign After #FixTheCountry Was Restraint

0

Ghanaian youth who are dissatisfied with the conditions in the county are not relenting in their bid to demand accountability.

Despite an injunction secured by the police against the #FixTheCountry demonstration on May 9, the youth are unperturbed.

The police in a letter to the conveners following the restraining order it secured on Thursday said the group, made up of mostly youth, is denied the opportunity to protest on the said date “or any other date until the restriction on public gathering is lifted.”

The demonstration was meant to amplify sentiments such as rising youth unemployment, dilapidated health system, skyrocketing home-renting structure, poor road networks among others.

While lamenting the setback in taking their concerns onto the street, the sympathisers have adopted a different approach by going back to where it all started – Twitter.

This time, the more targeted campaign has seen users sharing videos and images of stalled projects and deteriorating conditions that need government’s support while calling out constituency’s MPs, DCEs among others.

Though the MPs are primarily tasked to make laws in Parliament, many users say they are embarking on this online protest on the back of campaign promises from the legislators to see some of these projects through.

The hashtag, #NameAndShame has garnered over 81,000 tweets since it started Friday morning.

Below are some of the tweets from various constituents across the country.
