Deputy Finance Minister-designate, John Kumah has entreated the #FixTheCountry protestors to table down their demands and present them to the government for further engagements to be made.

According to Mr. Kumah, the government is ready to address their concerns, however, the protestors have not been specific with their demands.

“They’ve put their concerns as failure on the part of successive governments to improve the lives of the citizenry. This is so far the understanding that we as government get from them [but] we need to know the specifics on what can be done to address the specific failure as they define it,” he said.

This follows agitations on social media by the #FixTheCountry protestors demanding accountability from the government.

Concerns raised by the group made up of scores of Ghanaian youth include unemployment, dilapidated roads, poor economic conditions of citizens, poor educational systems, remuneration for appointed and elected officials in government, increase in fuel prices, intermittent power supply, etc.

The government through a press conference addressed by Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta responded to some issues raised, but the group seems unsatisfied with the response given by the government.
