According to her, a lot of the Ghanaian youth mostly spend their time on social media hence using the hashtag would get the attention of the youth in order for them to join in the campaign.
‘’ The are various ways we would like to talk to people about Jungle Justice and one is to trend with the hashtag. This is because a lot of young people are active on social media and in order to do so, we are going to use Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and various interactions to promote the jungle justice. We would ask people whether they have experienced it before and get resource people who can answer a few questions” she maintained
The actress also noted that programs would be held in various regions in Ghana according to their schedules, therefore, making the campaign not just identified in Accra but to other Districts as well like Ashanti Region, Eastern, others.
