Veteran Ghanaian journalist, Ben Ephson has said the best solution to curb corruption in Ghana is to introduce a six-year one-term-only presidency.
In his view, the renowned pollster explained that no president should be allowed to run for re-election after the six-year term as a longterm solution against corruption.
The managing editor of the Daily Dispatch newspaper indicated that no president will not be able to loot state coffers to sponsor his/her second term bid if that is introduced.
Speaking on Class FM, he said: “There should be one-term of six years,”
Mr Ephson was of the view that when a president realises that he/she has just a term to serve, he/she “will sit up”.
The pollster cited an example of how Ghana’s legislators got agitated and concerned when a recent survey by the Political Science Department of the University of Ghana, Legon suggested that more than 50 per cent of them risked losing their seats if elections were held at the time of the release of the report.
