Social media personality, Efia Odo, who is also a key member of the FixTheCountry campaign, says she is taking a break from championing the course.
In a statement she shared on Instagram yesterday, she hinted that the reason for her ‘hiatus’ is “political” and that her ‘mental health is at stake and didn’t explain further.
The controversial actress is, however, taking her break from the FixTheCountry campaign which has largely been associated with elements of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
There have been wild allegations that some NDC bigwigs have been sponsoring and pushing envelopes to some conveners of the campaign.
The conveners of the campaign were in court with the police, in their drive to stage demonstrations to further push their agenda.
Efia Odo is among some of Ghana’s top showbiz personalities who joined thousands of social media users to protest against the government using the ‘FixThe Country’ hashtag on Twitter and other social media platforms, and has always been using her social media handles to project the course of the campaign.
Recently, she was even among more than ten (10) persons who were arrested by the police for demonstrating in front of the Law Court Complex in Accra, as part of the #FixTheCountry protests.
The group was demonstrating in front of the Law Court Complex where the Criminal Division of the Court was hearing a case by the police seeking to place an injunction on the #FixTheCountry demonstration.
But she was subsequently released and has been on some traditional media platforms to keep pushing the agenda of the campaign.
In an Instagram post on June 25, she indicated that FixTheCountry is “a course worth fighting for.”
However, on Monday, July 5, 2021, she made a U-turn saying she is taking a break from the campaign.
“I will like to take this time to let you all know that I am going on hiatus. My mental health is at stake at this moment. My love for this country and humanity has turned into something I am not, political. I am for peace and equality. My heart and intentions are as pure as gold. Things are too heavy for me right now. Take care,” she wrote on Instagram.
