Togbe Afede calls for changes to council of state composition.

Togbe Afede a former member of the council of state has called for changes to be made on it is constituted. The president of the republic appoints most of the members making them not to be objective in their submissions sometimes. He is not the only person to have an issue with the council of state. Prof Baffuor Agyeman-Duah earlier called for a scrap of the Council, saying the advisory role it plays is somewhat duplicative.

Togbe Afede made his views known during an interview on Joy News. He said “Council of State is a nice proposition that has been messed up by the composition. If it can be made to meet the expectation of the framers of our Constitution, it can be a good addition to the various organs and institutions of state.

But the composition of the Council, the number of members that are appointed by the President leaves a lot to be desired. You want a Council that is strong, that is independent in thought and in action, and that can give right advice to those who need that advice as opposed to nearly endorsing what comes before them,” he told JoyNews’ Maxwell Agbagba.
