- Bishop Daniel Kissi Bonegas has argued that age at which one can become president of Ghana must be reduced
- According to him, the limitation has hindered young people from using their abilities
- The minimum age at which can become president of Ghana is 40 years
The founder of the Great Fire Pentecostal Church, Bishop Daniel Kissi Bonegas, has called for a reduction of the age at which one can become president of Ghana.
According to him, the current limitation on the age makes it impossible for some of Ghana’s youth to serve the country with dynamism.
He added that a reduction of the age, aside being a prudent measure, would also create opportunities for the youth to prove their worth.
The man of God went on to say there are several examples in which young people assumed leadership roles and made a difference.
He referred to people such as Emmanuel Macron of France, Napoleon Bonaparte and David in the Bible, who assumed leadership roles at young ages.
Bishop Bonegas therefore called on the presidency as well as Parliament to take a second look at the issue.
Per a report by rainbowradioonline.com, he said “David very young when the Lord made him king over His people and we all saw how he ruled the people with wisdom.”
Article 62 (b) of the 1992 Constitution of Ghana sets the minimum age at which one can become president of the country at 40 years.
Meanwhile, an Accra High Court has freed two journalists who work with ModernGhana, an online platform, and an editor who works at Peace FM.
The decision was reached after the state decided to withdraw the case it, per an application by senior state attorney, Stella Ohene Appiah.
