Head of the Department of History and Political Science of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology says Ghana’s Constitution was lifted from that of Kenya and has numerous irregularities.
Dr. Richard Amoako Baah explains that the constitution is predominantly copied from the Kenyan constitution word to word because the Kenyan one is older than that of Ghana.
Dr. Amoako Baah was speaking on Metro fm’s “Yenso Y3 Die Nie” political program.
The Political Science head accused the consultative assembly, framers of the constitution, of drafting it to protect architects of military governments headed by Jerry John Rawlings.
Dr. Richard Amoako Baah was commenting on current political developments in the country.
He is yet to come to terms with why the current Ghanaian constitution protects past military rulers from rendering accounts of their stewardship to Ghanaians which was characterized by violence.
He is, therefore, calling for a total overhaul of the 1992 Constitution to meet modern standards.
