Constitution Day should remind us of our collective responsibility to uphold rule of law, democracy – Akufo-Addo

As the country marks the birth of the 4th Republic, today, January 7, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has entreated Ghanaians to use the day to reaffirm their responsibility as citizens to ensure the country continues to enjoy the peace and stability it has witnessed over the past three decades.

The President in a tweet sighted by ABC News wrote, “Today, we celebrate the most prolonged period of stable, constitutional rule in the history of Ghana, and acknowledge our collective efforts, as a country, in upholding the tenets of democracy, the rule of law and the principles of constitutionalism.”

The Constitutional Day was instituted by the Akufo-Addo administration to mark the coming into force of the 1992 Constitution of Ghana, on January 7, 1993, which ushered in the 4th Republican dispensation.

The country has seen a stable regime for 27 years.

The government has since last year, set the day as a public holiday and held a maiden Constitution Day Public Lecture at the Ghana Academy of Arts and Science where a keynote address was delivered by the Rector of GIMPA, Professor Bondzie-Sampson on the topic, “Constitutionalism in Ghana’s Fourth Republic: Towards Functional Performance”
