Ghanaians Must Be Grateful 1992 Constitution Has Brought Stability – IDEG



Emmanuel Akwetey, the executive director of the Institute for Democratic Governance (IDEG), has expressed disappointment with the low interest in celebrating the remarkable things Ghana has achieved 30 years after the country approved the 1992 constitution.

Dr Akwetey said Ghanaians must be grateful for the stability and peace that the 1992 constitution has brought in the course of three decades.

“I think it is commendable that we have had or found a scale of sustaining the multiparty constitutional democracy that we have …” he told Kwaku Nhyira-Addo on The Asaase Breakfast Show on Friday (29 April 2022).

“I think it is remarkable that, on the 30th anniversary of the most stable democracy or republic or constitution, there was no buzz about it anywhere in town,” he said.

“In fact, some people were surprised that the president was going to speak and the announcement also came late.

He added: “So that tells you that we are a bit unhappy, or maybe seriously unhappy. Because this is a cause to celebrate, this is an achievement and yet we don’t feel happy about the development given …

“I think, for me, that is the sad part of it.”
