A former Clerk of Parliament, Mr Samuel Ntim Darkwa, has presented copies of two books he co-authored on Parliament, to former President Jerry John Rawlings.

The revised edition of the books, titled ‘The Evolution of Parliament in Ghana’ and ‘How Our Parliament Functions’, were presented by Mr. Darkwa when he called on the former President on Thursday, 11 April 2019.

Mr. Darkwa told the former President that having worked for decades with the Parliamentary Service, he thought it wise to “put something down for posterity.” The books he stated, are dedicated to the Constituent Assembly which drafted the 1992 constitution.

In a discussion with the former President, Mr. Darkwa said when the 1992 Constitution was promulgated, he and a colleague prayed regularly for it to be sustained.

The former Clerk of Parliament commended the former President for his role in sustaining the Fourth Republic recalling that when the constitution was first presented to the then Head of State, he called on all to ensure that it was a lasting legacy for Ghana.

Former President Rawlings said he was honoured to have received the books and stated he will endeavour to read them and take some notes for his autobiography. He commended the former Parliamentary Clerk for writing the book and noted that not many are writing, allowing some to skew the history of Ghana’s political development.

Mr. Samuel Ntim Darkwa has the enviable record of having worked in the parliament of all four Republics He was also the clerk to the Constituent Assembly which drafted the 1992 constitution.

Co-author of the books, K. B. Ayensu was Ghana’s first Clerk of Parliament.
