Law lecturer, Professor Philip Ebow Bondzi-Simpson has been announced as the keynote speaker for the maiden Constitution Day Lecture.
Scheduled for Monday, the lecture would focus on the gains and shortfalls in the 26 years of the 4th Republic, since 1992.
The Interior Ministry in December 2018 declared January 7 as a public holiday to enable the country to take stock of its democratic development.
In a statement Friday, Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah said the Constitution Day has been “set aside to acknowledge the country’s collective efforts.”
“The day is in recognition of the commencement of the Fourth Republic Constitutional dispensation on January 7, 1993,” he said.
Currently the Dean of GIMPA Law Faculty, Prof Bondzi-Simpson is expected to walk Ghanaians through the high and low moments of the 4th Republic.
The lecture would be centered on the topic: “Constitutionalism in Ghana’s Fourth Republic towards Functional Performance.”
The Information Ministry has said the event would be telecasted on all the major media stations and on its social media handles.
