The president, who did not comment, went ahead to give a fist bump to some of the Ghanaians at the place.

In a video sighted by GhanaWeb, some of the people could be heard shouting “Nana please fix the country we beg you, so that we can come back to the country.”

Another person also said, “Why should we be begging for our rights all the time.”

President Akufo-Addo left Ghana for the European country on Sunday, August 22, 2021.

The President is expected to meet the manufacturers of the Pfizer vaccines with the aim of securing substantial doses for Ghana.

The #FixTheCountry movement which was started by some youth activists on social media have bemoaned the level of unemployment, unfavourable conditions and economic hardship in the country.

On August 4, 2021, the movement held a demonstration after battling several court orders which prevented them from proceeding with the protest.

Organizers of the #FixTheCountry movement have vowed to hit the streets again in September in Takoradi.
