#FixTheCountry coalition rallies 1m signatures against 1992 Constitution

Members of the #FixTheCountry Coalition have begun processes to invoke a vote of no confidence in the 1992 constitution, targeting one million signatures.

At a press conference today, Monday, 23 August 2021 at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle, Accra, the group lamented that the constitution has not lived up to the core principles of equality before the law and also ensured that the majority of state resources are owned by Ghanaians among other things.

It is recalled that the group after months of back and forth in court embarked on its much talked about demonstration on August 4 to press home the demands for improved conditions of living for Ghanaians.

Addressing the press, the leader of the Economic Fighters League, Ernesto Yeboah urged Ghanaians to support their call and vote for a new constitution.

For his part, lead convenor of the #FixTheCountry movement, Oliver Vomarwo expressed their resolve to seek justice for the murdered Ibrahim Kaaka.

Kaaka, a member of the Economic Fighters League, was attacked in the early hours of Saturday, 26 June 2021, which resulted in his unconsciousness and hospitalisation.

He died while on admission on Sunday, 28 June 2021.

The coalition is expected to meet the new IGP and National Chief Imam tomorrow, Tuesday, 24 August 2021 to table their concerns before them for redress.
