Thousands of Ghanaians thronged to the the streets of Accra to drive their demand for fixing of problems facing Ghana as #FixTheCountry Movement staged their first protest.
The movement made several attempts to hit the streets since formation but was unsuccessful due to an Ex-parte court order but was quashed by the Supreme Court over procedural impropriety.
The last legal tussle that movement had to battle was when the police application on notice to stop the #FixTheCountry protestors from demonstrating but was shot down by the High Court in Accra.
This ruling coupled with engagement with the Acting IGP George Damper and a lot more efforts paved the way for the long awaiting protest today.
The protest which started at Obra Spot at Kwame Nkrumah Circle in Accra, through principal streets to drive home their demands.
