The Nifahene of the Awutu Traditional Council, Nai Pobi Abuun-dam, has urged the government, MPs, technocrats, and statesmen to implement punitive measures to revise the constitution in order to establish discipline in the nation.

According to the traditional ruler, the 1992 Constitution removed several rules that gave chiefs the authority to manage their people, rendering them impotent to guarantee community discipline.

He advocated for a reform of the 1992 constitution to allow chiefs more power to promote discipline in their diverse communities.

“The Constitution favours some and renders others powerless. Some of us chiefs are bitter about the Constitution and how all the power has been taken away from the chiefs. Things are going on in the communities, and we can do nothing about it as chiefs because we don’t have any enforcement.”

“Today they say teachers are not supposed to cane students, and that is affecting education because the kids are not learning and they know nothing can be done to them, so there should be a review of the Constitution to give some power to the Chiefs,” Nai Pobi Abuun-dam said on Rainbow Radio Accra.

He also entrusted the government with reintroducing the “Attend the Chief’s Call” chieftaincy statute to assist empower traditional rulers.
