The much anticipated protest, “Fix the Country”, was finally held yesterday, August 4, 2021, as hundreds of Ghanaians turned up in the streets of Accra to demand accountability and better living conditions from President Akufo-Addo and the government of Ghana.
Demonstrators and activists held placards with inscriptions, including: ‘“We deserve better too, fix the country”, “We are suffering, we need jobs”, “Young people cannot pay rent, fix the country”, “Reduce fuel and gas prices”, “Where are the 88 hospitals Nana Addo?”, among many others.

A 67-year-old man who held a placard with the inscription: “No to revisionism. Nkrumah remains founder”, said he was not happy with the change of the Founders Day, which was celebrated every September 21 to mark the birthday of Dr Kwame Nkrumah to the present Founders’ Day marked every August 4 to celebrate the various founders of the country.

Most protesters had converged on the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange by 6 a.m and began to walk from the Kwame Nkrumah Avenue towards the Farisco Traffic Lights, through the TUC Traffic Intersection to the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) at Accra Central and ended at the Black Star Square.
Well known participants were Black Rasta and Captain Smart, both radio presenters, and Avram Ben Moshe.
