Scores of Ghanaians have taken to the street to pour out their frustration and anger over what they say is the poor handling of the country’s affairs in a non-partisan protest dubbed #FixTheCountry.

Sights and scenes from the march show hundreds of protesters brandishing placards and banners with inscriptions calling for some level of improvement in various aspects of the economy.

One of such banners which has caught the attention of many is that of a young man who penned an emotional note to his mother as he joined the ongoing protest.
