Accra, Mrs Wilhelmina Adu Asamoah, Krowor Municipal Director, National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE), has urged students to be law abiding as they pursue their rights and responsibilities and become conversant with the constitution as citizens.
She said this during the maiden edition of the Municipal’s “1992 Constitution Quiz Competition” which was organised by the NCCE in the Krowor Municipality.
Mrs Adu Asamoah said the purpose of the Quiz competition was to educate the students on how their individual rights could be respected, imbibed and protected as individuals and future leaders.
She added that as NCCE served as an educational and civic institution to the public, it encourages both adults and young adolescents must be law abiding, adding that education on rights and responsibilities could be better enforced through the younger ones when they become conversant with the constitution.
The Municipal Director said that 16 schools across the Municipality participated in the selection process for the Quiz Competition but four Schools were finally selected to contest for the grand finale.
She stated that the best school would be awarded with Certificate of Recognition signed by the Education Director of the Municipality and customised NCCE exercise books.
