The Ahafo Regional Office of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) has met with officers of the Ghana National Fire Service and the National Intelligence Bureau (NIB) in the Ahafo Region. The Commission engaged the security officers on its 2023 working theme, “30 Years of Consolidating Constitutional Democracy: Building National Cohesion through Civic Education and Participation in Local Government”.
The engagement with the officers is part of activities to commemorate the 2023 Constitution Week celebration. The week’s celebration is a flagship programme of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) observed annually from 28th April to 4th May to remind Ghanaians of how well Ghana has evolved in her journey into the Fourth Republic.
An Assistant Director, at the NCCE, Mr Eric Anyormi gave a brief background of Ghana’s democracy and discussed the role of the Security Agencies in nation-building. Mr Anyormi advised that exchange programmes be pursued by the National Security Agencies to win the trust and confidence of citizens. This will make citizens share information on criminal activities in their neighbourhoods with the National Security Agency as enjoined by Article 41(f), (g), (h) and (i) of the 1992 Constitution of Ghana.
The Second in Command of the National Intelligence Bureau, Mr. Pious Ayoung commended NCCE for its work of sensitizing the public on national issues and cited the great work the Commission carried out on the SIM- Card Re-registration.
Assistant Chief Officer (ACFO II), Joseph Y. Koranteng of Ghana National Fire Service also greatly commended NCCE’s neutrality on national issues when engaging in public education. He went further to encourage his officers to strive for excellence to help create the desired region.
Senior Officer (SO II), Nmoh Ernest from Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) proposed that copies of the 1992 Constitution be made available to the public to enhance adequate knowledge of the law.
