The 1992 Constitution Must be Amended to Suit Ghanaians- Political Analyst
Mr. Samuel Boateng, a political analyst has described the Ghana 1992 republican constitution as a noncurrent one which needs to be amended to suit the constitutional demands of the citizens.
Mr. Samuel Boateng said that the authors of the 1992 constitution generated massive recognition for the political heads rather than the ordinary citizens in the course of developing the constitution which he said is affecting the demands of the people in the country.
He stressed that, a lot of articles in the 1992 constitution favours the leaders of the country’s political parties whiles the ordinary citizens suffers from the same constitution.
He further stated that, article 17 (1 & 2) of the 1992 constitution states that, All persons shall be equal before the law. A person shall not be discriminated against on grounds of gender, race, colour, ethnic origin, religion, creed or social or economic status hence the constitution must be favourable to all the peoples of the country.
He added that, the clause in the same constitution which gives president of the republic to move around within10years after his presidential term before he could be prosecuted against wrong doings is a great misinterpretation against the article 17 (1 and 2.)
He explained that, the article 17 of the constitution clearly means all individuals in the country must have same treatment and such must be respected.
