The main agenda of the #FixTheCountry campaign is to change the 1992 constitution. They believe that the 1992 Constitution seems to give more power to politicians to do whatever they like, neglecting the citizenry to suffer. The President of the land has the power to appoint all leaders in the country including the Supreme Court Judge, Electoral Commission Chair, CEOs of State Companies, Heads of Security Services among others.
There is soo much power invested in leadership than the people and the #FixTheCountry Movement is on an agenda to change the 1992 Constitution and pave way for a New Constitution that will benefit all Ghanaians. Yesterday evening, Afia Pokuaa and Ernesto Yeboah crashed on the Okay FM program known as Egyaso Gyaso. Ernesto Yeboah, one of the leaders of the #FixTheCountry believes that when they get one million signatures from Ghanaians to change the Constitution, leadership has no power other than to heed to them and change it.
But Afia Pokuaa counter this comment and said that it is impossible for the one million votes to change the Constitution even if they get it. This is because we have over 30 million Ghanaians in the country and one million people are just a small portion of the people. Also, Afia Pokuaa said that their documents to change the Constitution will need approval from Parliament but Ernesto Yeboah replied to Afia that it is not so because the will of the people surpasses the Constitution or any other governing body.
Vim Lady asked Ernesto to go and do his homework because as a student of the law, there is no law that states that the Constitution can be changed by this process. There is a law in the Constitution that states that any attempt to overthrow the Constitution must be resisted. According to Ernesto, Chile used the same process they using to change their Constitution but Afia Pokuaa replied that the laws in this country are different from the laws of Chile.
