A convener of #FixTheCountry Movement, Oliver Barker-Vormawor has proposed that the President of the 4th Republic, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo should be given a third term as the President Of Ghana.
According to him, this is because eight years is too short for a government that had successfully managed the economy and the alternative to such a successful government is very scary.
Mr Barker-Vormawor noted that, Ghana has reached a very critical stage of it’s development and it requires the most trusted and strongest pair of hands.
He added that this stage of development that he is talking about is “stability” and not a change of government.
Oliver Barker-Vormawor made these statements in a Facebook post on Friday, April 1, 2022.

Amend the Constitution.
Give Nana Akufo-Addo 4 more years!
Every good deed deserves a term!
Folks,I think we have reached a critical stage of our development that requires the most trusted and strongest pair of hands.
It seems to me that at this stage of our development, we need stability. Not change. Investor confidence is best built where they can trust in a certain policy stability.
It is for this reason that I propose that the President should amend the Constitution to extend his stay in Office. We need a third term.
8 years too short to successfully manage the economy. Plus the alternative is fucking scary.
We need to break the 8. We beg the President to accept our humble request. Term limits are after all arbitrary. Development has no timeline.
What the constitution of Ghana Says about the president’s term of office.
Article 66 of the 1992 Constitution Of Ghana on the mandate of an Elected President says;
“(1) A person elected as President shall, subject to clause (3) of the article, hold office for a term of four years beginning from the date on which he is sworn-in as president. (2) A person shall not be elected to hold office as President of Ghana for more than two terms.
