The Information Minister has defended government for setting aside a day for national introspection on the country’s Fourth-Republican constitutional democracy.
Kojo Oppong Nkrumah said the Constitution Day is not a day for mere fanfare but called on all to reflect on the constitutional democratic journey of the country.
The Offoase Ayirebi MP said all over the world, there are talks of how to build a better nation and Ghana setting aside a day like the Constitution Day is a laudable idea.
The Fourth Republic starts on the January 7, a day on which presidents and parliament are sworn into office to start the business of governance.
The Akufo-Addo government is of the view that that day must be recognized for what it is and celebrated.
This year’s celebrations start off with a public lecture in Accra but Mr Oppong Nkrumah hints it will be celebrated at the district levels from 2020.
