Efia Odo Finally Explains Why She Dropped Out Of The #FixTheCountry Demonstration
Efia, a Convenor of the #FixTheCountry campaign, which demanded accountability and better management of the country from the ruling New Patriotic Party, led by President Nana Ado Dankwa Akufo-Addo, played a key role in spreading the people’s needs and mobilizing citizens to join the protest, which began online with the hashtag “FixTheCountry.”
Most people, on the other hand, were unhappy when the actress announced a social media hiatus ahead of the street protest with her
“I will like to this time to let you know that I am going on a hiatus. My mental health is at stake at the moment,” she wrote in a tweet in July.
She has finally disclosed why she was unable to stay on the honorable path. Efia Odo claims she was “threatening on multiple times” to end the campaign.
“My life was threatened on multiple occasions, and my mother begged and sobbed for me not to go,” she stated in a tweet seen by Sarknation on August 27.
Efia Odo did not show up for the street protest, which was met with fierce opposition by the Ghana Police Service, which used COVID-19 induced limitations to halt the rally, which was originally scheduled for June 14.
Her mother, who was terrified that the people behind the threats might hurt her daughter, persuaded her to give up the fight, according to the FixTheCountry Convenor.
“She told me Ghana wasn’t worth dying for, but I can make a difference in my own way,” Efia Odo continued.

She did not, however, name the individuals who made the threats.
