We’re fixing the country at a pace that Ghanaians will be happy with— Freddie Blay
The National Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Freddie Blay has stated that the government is living up to expectations by fixing the country in a manner that Ghanaians will be proud of.
According to him, #Fixthecountrynow protestors on social media are mostly members of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) who want to fuel an agenda against the government, noting that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is already fixing it at his own pace.
He however noted that people have the rights to protest when they detect a problem, stressing that the government is in the act of fixing the country.
“it’s a democratic country, you can have an opinion, maybe most of them are NDC people and maybe they are even referring to what then-candidate Akufo-Addo did say that when you are in power and people are complaining that things aren’t going well, fix it. Of course, government is in the act of fixing the problems in this country,” he said.
Mr Blay indicated that the NPP-led administration has done good job ever since it assumed office and it was doing its best to solve every economic problem.
“Talk about dumsor, it’s not the dumsor as we know it in the NDC era that took place for four years, a few problems that we encountering. We are having problems with our distributing lines and definitely, efforts are being made to repair the broken down ones.”
“so, if they say we should fix the country, definitely at our pace we doing that, a pace that Ghanaians will be happy with. We have explained that the situation is not a permanent situation, it’s just a three-four months situation that people are making it look as if everything is broken down and we are not doing anything about it,” he added.
The protest mainly led by the youth is drawing attention to the lack of opportunities for the youth and general living conditions in the country.
The concerns range from the recent fuel price increment to wastage in public office by political officeholders.
