Host of Tonton Sansan on TV XYZ, Kwame Minkah has descended on the Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Right Rev. Prof. Joseph Obiri Yeboah Mante over his recent comment that the youth of the country ought to fix their mouths.
The #FixTheCountry trend on social media received a backlash from the preacher man who, to many, seems to be in bed with the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) government, saying the campaigners take delight in attacking the government at the least provocation.
Asking the youth to fix their mouths, Prof. Mante emphasised that they should learn to desist from engaging in unnecessary lamentation and learn to change their attitudes to make the environment they find themselves in better.
He added that the Akufo-Addo government cannot do it and went on to jab the youth, adding that t is easy for people to sit on social media and make unnecessary lamentations when they have no idea how things work.
But Kwame Minkah who disagrees with the preacher man criticised his logic on Tonton Sansan Thursday morning. The broadcaster noted that nobody asked the Akufo-Addo administration to fix it, stressing that there were more issues that should have been fixed in the first term of the NPP but the government chose to shower rhetoric on Ghanaians and raised their hope.
“While we are asking the government to fix the country so we all be at ease, we have some pastors who are using their pulpits to tell us to fix our mouths,” he said while telling Prof. Mantey to reason with the youth.
“Why should we keep quiet when we don’t have good roads?; Why should we keep quiet when our children who are our future leaders don’t have classrooms to study except to learn under trees?; Why should we keep quiet when we don’t have water flowing through our taps?”
He went on to chide the clergyman for not empathising with the millions of Ghanaians who are jobless and keep searching for jobs without any success for years.

Apart from hitting the streets in August this year, some Ghanaians continuously express their disappointment in the government and vent their spleen through various radio and television programmes every day.
