President Nana Akufo-Addo in his maiden remarks about Government’s newly introduced Constitution Day public Holiday, has said that the day is set aside to celebrate, the ‘longest’ period of constitutional rule in the country’s history.

According to President Nana Akufo-Addo, the newly instituted holiday is also to acknowledge the collective efforts of Ghanaians in upholding the tenets of democracy.

In a tweet he said that the celebration of the holiday is also an acknowledgement of the rule of law and the principles of constitutionalism in the country.

“On this first #ConstitutionDay, we celebrate the longest, undisturbed period of stable, constitutional rule in the history of Ghana and acknowledge our collective efforts, as a country, in upholding the tenets of democracy, the rule of law and the principles of constitutionalism.” The President tweeted.

The day has been set aside by the Akufo-Addo administration to recognize the coming into force of the 1992 Constitution and the beginning of the 4th Republic.

The government has urged the public to use the day (January 7) to reflect on the country’s democracy.

As part of government’s activities to mark the day, the Ministry for Information held a public lecture under the theme, “Constitutionalism in The Fourth Republic: Towards Functional Performance.”

The government presented a bill before parliament to amend the Public Holidays Act to include January 7, August 4 and September 21 as statutory public holidays.
