Newly recruited staffs of the National Commission for Civic Education, have been challenged to make efforts to be relevant to their duty posts by arming themselves with information. Mr. Kojo Tito Voegborlo, NCCE’s Commission Secretary, speaking at the Information Sharing Workshop for NCCE’s Newly Recruited Staff in Kumasi charged the new staff to build a credible data of relevant information through community profiling of the communities they work in. He also challenged the newly recruited staff of the Commission not to just dream big but take initiatives and make a difference and endeavour to leverage on their networks to solicit support to enhance NCCE’s work.
Although there are challenges in the Commission especially in some district offices, the Commission Secretary said with the right attitude, dedication, greater commitment, and responsibility, the new staff can significantly improve the work of the Commission.
As a civic educator, Mr. Voegborlo charged the new staff to make time to familiarise themselves with the content of the Commission’s Handbook, adding that what is contained in the book is a good resource for every civic educator.
Mr. Voegborlo also highlighted the need to give publicity to the various civic education efforts they undertake in the media. The Commission Secretary made these remarks when he took NCCE’s newly recruited staff through an Overview of Civic Education Handbook/Manual, the Basic Facts, Basic Principles, and Basic Objectives of the 1992 Constitution.
