“Mr. President [Nana Akufo-Addo], this is not directed at you but to all other presidents under  our Republican constitution," he said.

He continued: “I think and I feel that the powers vested on the President of the Republic are just too excessive and therefore we will look to water down not just the powers of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo but all other Presidents of our Republic.”
