The National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE), as part of its 2022 Citizenship Week celebration in basic schools within the Ho Municipality of the Volta Region, has encouraged pupils not to take for granted the education received on Ghanaian values.
Citizenship Week is a project introduced into the Commission's activities in 2012 that targets pupils in basic schools across the country to create awareness in the Ghanaian citizenry to appreciate the aims and objectives of the 1992 Constitution and make them informed, responsible and effective participants in the democratic process. This year’s celebration is themed, “Sustaining Our Democracy, Ghanaian Values in Practice: The Role of the Child”.
This year’s celebration in the Volta Region had great personalities who served as resource persons. The Ho Municipal Director of the NCCE, Rev. Vincent Adzika, stated that in Africa, for that matter, Ghana has produced more scholars in various fields. However, the continent still remains poor because we are producing graduates without values.
