Ghanaian youth who are dissatisfied with the conditions in the county are not relenting in their bid to demand accountability.

Despite an injunction secured by the police against the #FixTheCountry demonstration slated for May 9, the youth are unperturbed.

The police in a letter to the conveners following the restraining order it secured on Thursday said the group, made up of mostly youth, is denied the opportunity to protest on the said date “or any other date until the restriction on public gathering is lifted.”

#FixTheCountry protestors counter injunction with #NameAndShame campaign on social media

The demonstration was meant to amplify sentiments such as rising youth unemployment, inefficient health systems, skyrocketing cost of rent, poor road networks among others.

While lamenting the setback in taking their concerns onto the street, the sympathisers have adopted a different approach by going back to where it all started – Twitter. A hashtag, #NameAndShame has been created on to share their sentiments.

This time, the more targeted campaign has seen users sharing videos and images of stalled projects and deteriorating conditions that need government’s support while calling out particular MPs and DCEs among other duty bearers.

Though the MPs are primarily tasked to make laws in Parliament, many of the campaigners say they are embarking on this online protest on the back of campaign promises made by the legislators to see some of these projects through.

The hashtag, #NameAndShame has garnered over 81,000 tweets since it started Friday morning.

Below are some of the tweets from various constituents across the country.
