The Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology Student Parliament has said one of Ghana’s biggest problem is its 1992  constitution.
The House in a Press statement copied to United Press News, says it cannot fathom why the 1992 constitution gives room for the President to appoint someone the highest office in the Police service and other national security agencies. According to them, it will certainly have absolute influence in the discharge of duties which takes away objectivity and independence.
