Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has emphasized that if given the mandate as Ghana’s next president, he will commit to a review of the 1992 Constitution.

According to the New Patriotic Party’s presidential candidate, not only will he review the Constitution but will also touch on key aspects with the view of amending provisions such as the ex-gratia, the rights of dual citizens, and the powers of the president.

“I am committed to the process to amend the 1992 Constitution through extensive public consultation, with key emphasis on issues such as ex-gratia, the rights of dual citizens, election of MMDCEs to deepen decentralization, and empowering institutions while reducing the power of the President” he pledged.

“The current constitution was designed mainly for political stability and it has achieved that . We need to amend it with the help of Parliament to align it more for national development” he told the gathering.

Dr. Bawumia also said that his government will prioritize the use of electric vehicles to reduce transport cost by 30-40%.

He made these remarks when addressing the Ghanaian public at the Kofi Ohene Konadu Auditorium at the University of Professional Studies, Accra, on Wednesday, February 7, 2024.
