1992 Constitution no longer fit for purpose, change it – Oliver Barker-Vormawor
A lead campaigner for the #FixTheCountry Movement, Oliver Barker-Vormawor is calling for a change in the 1992 Constitution as the country celebrates Constitution Day.
On January 7, every year from 2019, Ghana celebrates Constitution Day to bring to light the resilience of the fourth republic against military junta and the birthing of the 1992 Constitution.
On this day, government uses the opportunity to remind Ghanaians the need to enhance our democracy and constitutionalism but speaking on Mx24 News, the social activist argued that there has been too much talk on what needs to be done with less action taken in that regard.
“I think that the talk has become too much. We’ve had too much talk around Constitutionalism, around the things we need to do critically. The 1992 Constitution is no longer fit for purpose. We knew it was not fit for purpose on the day it was put in place. That is why the NPP at the time boycotted it, that is why the Ghana Bar Association boycotted the process,” he noted.
