The objective of the engagement is to empower the pupils to serve as change agents in nation-building as well as equip them with the requisite knowledge to enable them to play their roles in building and strengthening Ghana’s democracy.
Mrs. Annan explained the core function of the NCCE and the Constitutional Mandate governing the Commission. She added that the NCCE’s core mandate is to create and sustain the awareness of the principles and objectives of the 1992 Constitution as well as encourage citizens to perform their civic duties as well as uphold and defend the Constitution against any form of oppression.
She reminded the pupils of the values that shape our country, which include discipline, accountability, patriotism, nationalism, loyalty, respect for others, etc.
Mrs. Lucille Hewlett Annan reiterated that the 1992 Constitution is the fundamental law of Ghana and hence all Ghanaians and persons living in Ghana are required to follow and abide by it.
Mrs. Lucille Hewlett Annan presented 5 copies of the 1992 Constitution to the school and agreed to collaborate with them to set up a civic education club in the school.
