Former General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Kwabena Agyapong has called for a total transformation of Ghana’s political systems.

He also wants the democracy of the country to be revived.

In a tweet ahead of his planned interview on TV3 Key Points on Saturday January 7, the aspiring flagbearer of the NPP said “Join me as we discuss my vision for a new dawn on Ghana’s political landscape. Let’s transform our political system and revive our democracy.” 

Meanwhile in his address to the nation to mark three decades of the Fourth Republic, which falls on Saturday, January , President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo observed that not everybody in Ghana believes in the democracy being practiced as the system of government.

He said many have clamoured for authoritarian rule in order to precipitate development in the country.

“We should not take it for granted that everybody in Ghana has accepted democracy as the preferred mode of governance.

“There are those who would rather have authoritarian rule because they claim our country’s underdevelopment under democracy is cumbersome and we need to get things done in a hurry.

“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.

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.
