The Commission of Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ), has called on Ghanaians to show keen interest in empowering themselves with the knowledge of the constitution as in so doing would they be able to fight for their rights.
The Commission has urged all Ghanaians to make learning of the constitution a must so as to equip themselves with the knowledge to know where their rights begin and end and also to sensitize others on the tenets of the law.
“You have to know what is contained in the Constitution and don’t leave it at that. Educate your parents and peers who are not able to read and understand,” Mr Daniel Amosah, the Acting Central Regional Director of CHRAJ, said on Friday.
“Rights go with responsibilities so while we demand our rights we must do well to respect the rights of other people,” he said.
Mr. Amosah made this call on Ghanaians on the need to know the constitution during an interview with the Ghana News Agency while speaking on the importance of Constitution Day in Ghana’s political history.
