A team from the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) led by the Deputy Chairman of Operations, Mr Samuel Asare Akuamoah has visited the Ghana Immigration Service(GIS) Headquarters in Accra to engage the officers on the relevance of the 1992 Constitution of Ghana and other governance-related matters. The engagement forms part of the Commission’s Annual Constitution Week Celebration on the theme, "Thirty Years of Consolidating Democracy: Building National Cohesion through Civic Education and Participation in Local Governance."
Mr. Samuel Akuamoah said although there are gaps in parts of the 1992 Constitution, democratic rule is the way to go and the pillar of democracy is the Constitution. He urged the officers to protect it against all forms of abuse. He commended the Ghana Immigration Service for the role it played in sustaining and upholding constitutional rule for the past three decades. He indicated that the Ghana Immigration Service is mandated as an institution to protect the country’s borders. He charged the officers to ensure that extremists do not infiltrate the country.
The Deputy Comptroller in charge of Finance and Administration at the Ghana Immigration Service, Mr Isaac Owusu Mensah expressed gratitude to the commission for reminding them of their role as officers to protect the country’s borders, especially in the wake of violent extremist threats. He also charged the officers to renew their commitments to uphold the principles and values of the 1992 Constitution. “As we celebrate the week with the NCCE, let’s remember the struggles of the framers of the 1992 Constitution”, He said.
