Too old for public office: Martin Amidu missing as

If the Constitution allows some 70 years plus to become a President, why can't it allow a 66 year-old like Amidu to perform service to the Nation, under the circumstances that led to his appointment?

We must concede that modern health quality and lifespan for folks justify much older folks working longer. The argument that the extension of service tenure for older folks denies the younger ones job opportunities is at best porous.

We must not hide behind our pitiful failure to expand the Economy to accommodate the growing Population to deny strong, healthy and experienced alert seniors chances to serve the Nation longer.

The larger the Population, the more the hands that would be needed to manage the Nation effectively and well. That means having a good mix of young and old in the working space, both in Government and Private Enterprise.

Long Live Ghana!!!
