Kyiriabosom Reacts To #FixTheCountry Campaign

The 2020 flag bearer of the Ghana Union Movement (GUM), Rev Christian Kwabena Adu, popularly called Osofo Kyiriabosom, has called on the #FixTheCountry campaigners to desist from demonstrating and rather vote against the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the biggest opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the 2024 polls, since, in his view, their demonstrations will not change the status quo.

According to Osofo Kyiriabosom, Ghanaians have been demonstrating since the beginning of the fourth republic but such manifestations and protests have not changed anything in the country.

He noted that if the youth are hungry for development, then they must kick against the NPP and the NDC in the next election.

#FixTheCountry campaigners, mostly made up of angry Ghanaian youth, have been protesting against myriad national problems on social media.

The group planned a march on Sunday, May 9 but the police secured a court injunction against it.

Reacting to these developments on 12LIVE on Class91.3FM on Monday, 10 May 2021, Osofo Kyiriabosom told Blessed Sogah in an interview that “for these campaigns, I don’t think they will go anywhere”.

“You campaign, you go out, you demonstrate, it will never reach anywhere.

The only thing we need to do is to just keep our fingers crossed and wait for the time to come for us to vote NPP out or NDC out for new people to come and take over,” the founder of the Ghana Union Movement said.

He added: “We can demonstrate from hair to toe, nothing will happen”.

“Demonstrations have been ongoing in this country for so long and it has not changed anything”, he observed.

“Talking and talking on radio, interviews and etc., we have done all these since time immemorial and nothing has come out”.

“So, me, I’ll not join them [#FixTheCountry campaigners], they can go on and do it but I’m waiting for 2024 and I’ll campaign to remove the government.”

In response to the intended demonstration, the government says it has started addressing some of the concerns expressed by the campaigners.
