The New Patriotic Party’s Member of Parliament for Nsawam/Adoagyiri Constituency in the Eastern Region who doubles as the Majority Chief Whip of the 8th Parliament of Ghana has called for the bluff of Ghanaian Social media activists.
The Majority Chief Whip, Hon Frank Annor Dompreh, on Tuesday, May 4, 2021 on his social media page, Twitter, blatantly referred to these Ghanaian social media activists as ”gyimie” in his reaction to their massive call on President Akufo-Addo to fix the country.
Per the post shared by the MP and Majority Chief Whip ”Fix the Country, Fix the Country Gyimie”. He continued to write these words on his handle
”You don’t pay your taxes
You politicise every good policy
You receive bribe
You enjoy illegal connections
You don’t respect your elders
You over price your produce/sservices
You destroy state properties
You don’t keep your environment clean
You don’t go to work on time
You don’t buy anything Ghanaian
You chase teenagers who are even young to be your daughters
In fact you even cheat on your wife/husband
Please fix yourself first”
For the past two days, there has been a growing movement on social media by Ghanaians who have taken to social media with the #FixTheCountry to share their frustrations and the unprecedented economic hardships they are faced with after five new taxes were introduced by the Akufo-Addo government on Saturday, May 1, 2021.
According to these Ghanaian Social Media activists, there have been continous series of crisis across all the sectors of the country and that the President must quickly fix these challenges to make them have a comfortable and a decent living conditions.
There has been unannounced power outages in Ghana, shortages of water supply, upward increment in data and call tarrif, increment in petroleum products which will lead to imminent increase in transportation fare, growing insecurity as well as a pocket of killings on daily basis in parts of the country.
On the issue of power outages, the EGG and NEDCo have come out with dumsor timetable for parts of the Greater Accra Region and those in the Tamale Metropolitan Assembly after weeks of call by residents on the schedule of power supply so as to help them plan their activities for the day.
