The queen mother of Bontrase in the Awutu Breku District in the Central Region of Ghana, Naakye Owudey, has urged students to make it a habit to blow alarm on any criminal activity they see in their communities. She said this when addressing community members at a durbar organized by the Awutu Breku Municipal Directorate of National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE). This forms part of nationwide sensitization activities embarked on by the commission under the Accountability Rule of Law and Anti-corruption Program (ARAP) supported by the EuropeanUnion.
The programme seeks to engage, educate and empower the citizenry to be active participants in the governance process by contributing to a reduction in corruption, improvement in accountability and compliance with the rule of law, and enhanced environmental governance. The durbar focused on Public Accountability and Environmental Governance.
Naakye Owudey noted that students are the future leaders of this country therefore if they make whistleblowing part of their responsibilities, this country is guaranteed of future adults who are committed to fighting crime corruption
