“I will lead the campaign to fan the flames of activism and accountability to keep leaders on their toes so that some meaningful, significant and appreciable level of development is seen across the country.
“The movement (Fix The Country) is in the right direction and must not be seen and portrayed as insults against certain political and traditional leaders,” Agyeman Badu II said.
Osagyefo Oseadeyo Badu II, also the President of the Bono Regional House of Chiefs said the commitment of the activists in raising awareness of corruption and injustices, social ills, environmental degradation, poor sanitation, leadership and economic mismanagement were in the right direction and ought to be supported, the GNA report said.

Twene Jonas is an activist turned musician who has serially used social media postings to show the glossy part of New York City whiles slamming what he terms ills bedeviling the Ghanaian society.
Some government officials in September 2021 reportedly ‘stormed’ Jonas’ base in New York to expose him.
He went off social media for about two weeks but resurfaced with the excuse that he was working on his music hence the absence.
