Actress Efia Odo has declared Ghanaians do not deserve her to give her life for them.
Passionately speaking in an interview with Andy Dosty on Daybreak Hitz, the once active member of the #FixTheCountry campaign claimed she got threats from anonymous persons on social media who demanded that she discontinue marching against the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).
She said that, as a consequence of the multiple threats, she chose to excuse herself from the rally since she was not willing to give her life for Ghanaians.
“I’m not going to die for Ghana. Ghanaians are not worth my dying for them.”
She, however, said that her mother insistently pushed her to excuse herself from the rally.
“My mum said I shouldn’t go and I will listen to my mom when it comes to such things since I’m her eldest daughter.”
When she was questioned by the presenter why she continues to scream on social media, she asked him if he doesn’t “complain daily about the horrors that are going on in this country.”
Asked if she is not disturbed about the regular insults she gets on social media, she replied she accepts them “lightly” but her close companions do not take it lightly.
“They are merely rude with their words; not deadly. I take it lightly but others around me don’t take it lightly,” she remarked.
Although she would not die for Ghanaians, Efia Odo said she will do all she can via her organization, Odo Nti, to “help them”.
“If the government won’t do the things we are saying, then, I, in my own way will try to help…”
Last year, the #FixTheCountry campaign struck the streets of Accra to demand the government handle the mounting economic and social difficulties in the nation.
This campaign originated on social media when Ghanaian youth utilized their numerous accounts to demand accountability, decent governance, and improved living circumstances from government.
Since the #FixTheCountry campaign started in May last year, it has gathered significant following and support.
