As the country inches towards its 64th Independence Day, the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) has reiterated its preparedness to enhance the democratic development of the country by diligently delivering on its mandate.
Deputy Chairman in charge of Finance and Administration, Ms. Kathy Addy who stressed the need for Ghanaians to forge ahead in unity in their quest to develop, reassured the NCCE’s commitment to supporting efforts to build mother Ghana. She made these observations, during a duty tour of five Central Regional NCCE district offices and the Obuasi office of the Commission in the Ashanti Region.
On the first day of her working visit, Ms. Addy accompanied by the Central Regional Director, Mr. Nicholas Ofori Boateng, toured three district offices, including the Assin South, Assin Central, and Assin North directorates.
Likewise, Alhaji Aliyu Mohammed, Deputy Central Regional Director, also escorted Ms. Kathy Addy on the second day to three districts including Upper Denkyira East (Dunkwaw-On-Offin) and Upper Denkyira West (Diaso) and Obuasi.
The visit was to essentially monitor and assess the performance of staff in the regions implementing the Commission’s programmes within the districts and equally understand the challenges faced by the various offices.
Ms. Addy applauded the District Directors and the staff for their leadership and dedication to service in the delivery of Civic Education to the public. She stressed the Commission’s readiness to do its best to secure the needed resources to enhance the delivery of effective Civic Education to every Ghanaian.
While commending the directors and staff, the Deputy Chairman expressed concern about their welfare and pledged the commitment of the Commission to provide vehicles to the offices to enhance Civic Education at the community level.
She also charged the staff not to relent in the face of challenges but to keep up the good work and adhere to the COVID-19 safety protocols.
