Paul Adom-Otchere, the host of Good Evening Ghana has called on his colleague and General Manager of GH One TV, Nana Aba Anamoah and all those who are on social media tweeting about #FixTheCountry to be bold and learn COVID economics.
According to him, Nana Aba and those lamenting about the high cost of living in the country must first read about Covid economics.
“Those of you who think we should be bold and say; we should be bold and say what? You too be bold and learn Covid economics,” he said on Tuesday’s edition of his programme.
“Be bold, open your books and read Covid economics. Learn it and don’t come and tell me to be bold and say anything.
“Don’t talk about ‘fix the economy’ without understanding that there was Covid or pretending that you didn’t understand the whole Covid economics.”
Nana Aba Anamoah had earlier in a tweet urged Paul Adom-Otchere to be brave and tell the government of Nana Akufo-Addo and Dr Bawumia to fix the problems in the country.
The hashtags #FixTheCountry and #FixIt are social media campaigns that are geared towards calling for a change in the running of the country.
Before the start of his bi-weekly political talk show on TV, Adom-Otchere had asked a question in a tweet:
“#FixIt, #FixTheCountry, but whose fault is it, @JDMahama? @NAkufoAddo? COVID-19, CSO’s, Media, or whom? Deputy Finance Minister joins us tonight on @GoodEvening_Gh to tell us about the new taxes and to answer questions on the-why, the -what, and the-when?”

Nana Aba Anamoah upon seeing the tweet from the Good Evening Ghana host retweeted:
“For once, be brave and tell this administration led by @NAkufoAddo to #FixTheCountry and stop dragging others in.
“Is John Mahama our President? CSOs, Media? Did we elect them? Stop this life!!”
Is John Mahama our President?
CSOs, Media? Did we elect them?
Stop this life!! https://t.co/TmRtcwrwwA

This made Adom-Otchere use the first part of the show on Tuesday, May 4, which is a monologue commentary to address Nana Aba Anamoah and all those who retweeted his earlier post.
In response, Mr. Adom-Otchere said those criticising the government must understand how covid economics work.
