Former President John Agyakum Kuffour some years back also made a similar suggestion.

According to him in an interview, he said four years is always insufficient for any new government to work effectively.

He argues that right after an election the elected president uses one year out of the four to settle down and the second year for the last campaign.

He is then left with only two years to execute his promises or policies, which is not enough.

The award-winning actor also argues the same thing.

In a tweet sighted on his page by GhArticles, he wrote; “4 years is not enough for ANY President/ Gov to function effectively. The first year is used to settle down in the office and the last year for the campaign, leaving only 2 years for effective work. We should consider 5 years per term.”

The entrepreneur’s suggestion attracted a lot of mixed reactions from Ghanaians on Twitter.

While some disagreed with his view others believed the actor’s suggestion should be given the necessary consideration while comparing Ghana to Rwanda.

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Chairman for the Chereponi district has been brutally assaulted by party youth following the release of President Nana Akufo-Addo’s list for the Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Chief Executive (MMDCEs) Sunday.

In a report filed by Kasapafmonline sighted by GhArticles.com, reports say the party office has been set ablaze amidst the tension.

Earlier on, police in a statement announced an intel regarding a demonstration set to be embarked upon by some members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) who were aggrieved that their favourite candidate, S.K. Orlando, was not recommended for nomination.

“The Chereponi District Police Command upon receipt of the information quickly invited the Chereponi constituency chairman, Aliu Suleman and some of the youth leaders and after discussing, the chairman and the youth leaders realized the need to keep the peace and abide by the advice of the police not proceed with the demonstration. They also promised to go by the Police Order Act and notify the police accordingly, should they intend to organize the demonstration.”
