Nadowli-Kaleo NCCE engages pupils in sustaining Ghana’s democracy

The Nadowli-Kaleo District Office of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) has engaged school pupils in the district to remind them of their responsibility in helping to sustain the country’s democratic gains.

The engagement, which formed part of the celebration of this year’s Citizenship Week, saw officers from the NCCE and the Nadowli Traditional Council impart virtues of good citizenship to over 3,000 school children from 22 basic schools in the district.

Speaking at the launch of the week-long event at Nadowli, Mr Emmanuel Tambile Der, the Nadowli-Kaleo District Director of the NCCE, urged the pupils to acquire skills that would enable them to become responsible citizens to contribute their quota to building a strong, vibrant and democratic Ghana.

The Citizenship Week celebration was introduced by the NCCE in 2012 to remind basic school pupils of their civic responsibilities and to impart virtues of good citizenship to the school children.

This year’s Citizenship Week, which was observed from 26th May to 1st June 2022, was on the theme, “Sustaining Our Democracy, Ghanaian Values in Practice: The Role of the Child”.

“I encouraged you the school pupils and the teachers to be civic conscious and to acquire or develop civic skills, civic knowledge, and civic disposition, which are vital for the sustenance of Ghana’s 30 years of democratic gains”, he said.

On his part, Mr Evarist Danaah, the Secretary to the Nadowli Traditional Council, encouraged the pupils to demonstrate the spirit of good citizenship as they grow up and to eschew behaviours that had the tendency to derail national unity and peace.

He urged them to exhibit their civic responsibilities as Ghanaian children by reporting crimes in and around their communities and respecting the elderly and lawful authority in society.

Seven armed robbers arrested in the Western Region

Seven suspected robbers have been arrested in two separate anti-robbery operations in the Western Region.

Four of the suspects – Shadrack Nyame, Wofa Yaw Boadi, Sampson Attobra and Kweku Koduah – were arrested at their hideout at Wassa Powuako.

The arrest was after they had robbed their victims of GH?42,360.00 and some mobile phones at a section of the road between Wassa Powuako and Wassa Abenabena.

A news brief from the Police said the other three suspects – Samuel Amuzu, Francis Acheampong and William Kwifie – were arrested for attacking and robbing their victims of various sums of money and some gold ore at Yayaso village near Samreboi.

It said items retrieved so far from the suspects include a cash amount of GH? 1480, a quantity of gold ore, one pump action gun, 7 AAA live ammunition and one spent cartridge.

The brief said the suspects were in Police custody and would be taken through the due process of the law.

It commended the Western Regional Police Command for conducting a successful operation and thanked the victims and community members who assisted in the operation.

The brief urged the public to support the police to maintain a safe and secure environment for all.

AMA locks up shops in Accra and owners dragged to court

The Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) has locked up some shops in the Central Business District (CBD) with unclean surroundings, frontages and drains abut their premises.

The shops were locked on Tuesday following a directive by the Mayor of the City of Accra, Mrs Elizabeth Kwatsoe Tawiah Sackey when she paid a working visit to Ga-mashie, Kantamanto, Makola, June 4th, and Agbogbloshie markets.

The Public Health officials of the AMA were also directed to issue summons to the shop owners to appear before court for failing to keep their frontages clean contrary to the Assembly’s bye-laws on sanitation.

According to the AMA Sanitation By-laws 2017, a person commits an offence if he or she fails to keep the drains that abut the premises up to the middle of the street clean, provide a standard container for refuse storage as prescribed by the Assembly, receives service from an unauthorized person or unregistered solid or liquid waste collector, indiscriminately dumps solid and liquid waste in open spaces, drains, gutters, or bums solid waste.

Mrs Sackey speaking to the media after the tour, expressed displeasure at the unclean frontages of some shops in the markets and admonished the owners to endeavour to keep their surroundings and all their drains clean to avoid prosecution.

She reiterated the #BorlaInDrainsMustStopNow to ensure the free-flow of water when it rains and to prevent communicable diseases in the city.

“Most of the time we tend to blame the government and city authorities for the filth we see in our communities, but what we forget is that our attitude towards waste management is not encouraging… The issue of sanitation and flooding in Accra cannot be solved if we all do not play our part,” she said.

Mrs Sackey urged traders and shop owners not to extend their shops to the pavements as well as keep their surroundings and drains.

The AMA Boss was accompanied by the Director of Urban Roads at the AMA, Mr David Afosah-Anim, Assembly members, and some officials of the Assembly.

Provide sanitary materials for sound mind to study- Educationist

Madam Patricia Birago Gyamfi, Eastern Regional Coordinator for Girl-child Education, has called on parents to provide their female wards sanitary materials during their menstruation for a sound mind to study.

She said female students, afraid to soil themselves and be ridiculed by their mates absent themselves from class during menstruation.

Speaking in an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in connection with the celebration of World Menstrual Hygiene Day, Madam Gyamfi said even though her outfit seeks support to provide girls in the remote areas with sanitary pads, it was necessary for parents to live up to their responsibilities by supporting their girls.

That, she said, could be done through the formation of girls’ clubs in Basic Schools and other activities to give them the exposure to bridge the gender gap.

Menstrual hygiene day is celebrated every year to highlight the challenges of many girls in rural communities in getting sanitary material every month.

The day is also celebrated to demystify menstruation to boost confidence of girls and remove barriers to education.

Ada NCCE ends the 2022 Citizenship Week Celebration

The Ada East District Directorate of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) in the Greater Accra Region has climaxed the 2022 Citizenship Week Celebration with a call on the youth to respect and honour national monuments.

The 2022 Citizenship Week was commemorated on the general theme: “Sustaining our democracy; Ghanaian values in practice: the role of the child” which created a platform for the commission to engage several basic schools within the Ada East District.

In an interview with the Ghana News Agency in Ada, Mr. Solomon Dzidzor Mensah, the Ada East District NCCE Director said the theme was selected to drive home the essence of national unity.

He said the commission also seeks to build in the youth how to sustain peaceful co-existence within the society and join the process to speed up the developmental agenda for the citizenry.

He said the pupils were sensitized also to the need to put their collective sense of nationalism and patriotism foremost in everything they engage in before their individual, social, cultural, ethnic, or religious differences.

“The pupils were encouraged to respect the elderly as well as national institutions and national symbols,” he noted.

Mr. Mensah indicated that the pupils were also encouraged to shun bad companies that would endanger their future.

He explained that the Citizenship Week Celebration was introduced in 2012 by the Commission as part of the Annual Constitution Week Celebration to focus mostly on Basic Schools.

It was to instil in the pupils the values of citizenship and remind them of their roles and responsibilities as a way of preparing them to be responsible adults (citizens) and leaders in their communities.

The Pupils of Kasseh D/A No. One Basic School and Pentecost Preparatory School expressed their excitement about being part of this year’s celebration.

The pupils in a random interview with the Ghana News Agency promised to practicalize what they learned through the engagement with the NCCE to influence their society and the nation at large positively.

Goshen Global Vision engages students in tree planting

Pupils of the Boundary Road Methodist Basic school have planted distinct species of tree crops to mark World Environment Day.

The exercise organised by the Goshen Global Vision with funding from the U.S. Forest Services was also to expose the students to the need to protect the environment by planting more tree as climate change adaptation measures and restore the tree cover and provide shade for the young ones to play, to act as a wind break, and to prevent further erosion.

Ms. Mary Pepertual Kwakuyi, the Executive Director of the Environmentally minded NGO said the exercise in the Twin-city would restore the tree cover under the flagship project, “GREENING SEKONDI-TAKORADI”.

The project since 2020 had planted and nurtured 20,000 trees in Sekondi- Takoradi and 290,000 timber species in cocoa farms and forest reserves in the Western Region.

She said the youth have been chosen as stewards to transform the current state of degradation and maintain a sustainable environment in Sekondi-Takoradi and Ghana as a whole, adding that it was against that premise that “we are celebrating this day with our young ones in Wesley Methodist.”

Ms. Elizabeth Boateng, the Headmistress of the School was grateful that their school had been selected for the exercise and promised to supervise the children to see the growth of the species.
