Ghana’s 1992 Republican constitution is to blame for about 90 percent of the woes and challenges that faces the country.

Public Interest Analyst, Charles McCarthy says there is urgent need for a complete overhaul and amendments to the constitution to allow for the creation of more effective and efficient public institutions.

The ardent supporter of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) cited the appointment of the Inspector General of Police by the president as an example of an area of the constitution that needs amendment.

In his opinion, the constitution as it stands now arrogates so much power to the president which makes it difficult for public officials and institutions to function effectively

Mr. McCarthy is recommending a situation where nonpolitical entities and institutions will be given the leeway to appoint officials in order that loyalty does not concentrate at the presidency, particularly because the president is the sole appointing Authority.
