Extend term of office of the presidency for meaningful development - Bagbin
Sunyani, Sept. 14, GNA – Mr. Alban Bagbin, the
Minister of Health, on Thursday called for the
extension of term of office of the presidency and
said the four-year term was not making any
meaningful impact on national development.
Mr. Bagbin made the call when he addressed
management and staff of the Brong-Ahafo Regional
Hospital in Sunyani as part of his two-day visit
to the Region.
He explained that whenever there was change of
government successive governments had to study the
policies and programmes initiated under their
predecessors before they could be on course.
“Sometimes we have to spend months and years to
check documents so that we can follow the path of
national development laid down by our
forerunners”, he said.
Mr. Bagbin said politics was purposely meant for
development and it would be appropriate if
Ghanaians embrace the idea of the extension of the
term for development to thrive.
