Not Everybody In Ghana Believes In Democracy; Let’s Convince Such People – Akufo-Addo



It has been noted by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo that not all Ghanaians adhere to the democratic way of government.


He claimed that many have called for authoritarian control to hasten the country’s development.

“We shouldn’t assume that everybody in Ghana supports democracy as the best form of government.

There are individuals who prefer authoritarian control because they believe our nation’s slow development under democracy is inconvenient and we need to move quickly.

“We still have some work to do to convince such people that we are all safer under democracy,” President Akufo-Addo stressed in a nationwide broadcast on Friday, January 6.

The broadcast to the nation was to mark three decades of the Fourth Republic, which falls on Saturday, January 7.

On January 7, 1993, Ghana returned to constitutional rule and has since enjoyed a longest spell of democratic government, witnessing eight governments of five different presidents.

President Akufo-Addo stressed that “we have every right to be proud of this record and the celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Fourth Republic should inspire us even further to hold on to this status”.

He, therefore, said it is in place for January 7 to be celebrated each year as Constitution Day.
