CONSTITUTION SHOULD NOT GIVE SPECIFIC ROLES TO FORMER PRESIDENTS-EXPERT


The Head of Graduate School of Leadership and Governance at the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), Dr Kwaku Osei Akom says it not necessary to give special constitutional roles to former Presidents.

He explains that former Presidents are statesmen which mean that they are ready to serve under any capacity for the development of the nation.

Dr Osei Akom stated that due to the partisan nature of Politician in the country it will be difficult to give specific roles in the constitution to former Presidents if another party wins power.

He added that the US democracy is different from the ‘dirty politics’ practiced in Ghana so if the US former presidents are given roles it will be difficult to practice it in Ghana.


Dr Kwaku Osei Akom says rather former Presidents should be given huge ex-gratia so that they can embark on any projects they may wish to perform.

He states that if the former Presidents are comfortable they will be able to contribute to the development of the nation.
