This can be quite odd. Every President in Ghana is supposed to serve the country for at least four years. Well, there are a lot of incidents which occurred in the presidential race before the constitution was made.
Some Presidents were in power for more than fours. Others too had few months. These were as a results of coup d'etat and other military rulings.
There is one Ghanaian president who served the nation as President for only twenty four(24) days.
He was in power from 7th August, 1970 to 31st August, 1970. He was in power for three weeks and 3 days. He is called Nii Amaa Ollennu.
Though he acted as the president of Ghana during that period, he is officially regarded as a former president of Ghana. He is the least serving president of Ghana.
He was chief justice of the supreme court from 1962 to 1966. He was also the speaker of Parliament from 1969 to 1972.
He was officially the chairman of the Presidential Commission. He took over from the previous military leader, Lt. Gen. Afrifa and handed over on 31 August 1970 to Edward Akufo-Addo who was elected on 31 August 1970 by an electoral college.
He died in December, 1986.
He is the only president to serve the least period in office.
