The National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) has wished Ghanaians well as we celebrate the Easter celebrations.
The NCCE in the statement asked Ghanaians to make the period teach them, the essence of obedience, sacrifice, endurance, perseverance, tolerance and humility to accept and do God’s will.
It called for the strict enforcement of the Covid-19 protocols.
”With the knowledge of the new normal amidst COVID-19, NCCE entreats Ghanaians not to let their guard down during the Easter festivities. i.e. attending beaches, parties, night clubs, large religious gatherings, but to adhere faithfully to the safety measures to curb the spread. In this regard, we appeal to leadership of religious organisations, event organisers and operators of the above activities to help ensure strict compliance.
We reiterate the need for the Ghana Police Service to intensify enforcement efforts to avoid the upsurge the country encountered after the 2020 Christmas celebrations.
The NCCE also reminds members of the general public who were vaccinated to keep their cards intact, and remember to go for the second dose when available. The Commission further urges those yet to take the jab to get ready to participate in the ongoing COVID-19 Vaccination exercise, in order that we can together win the fight against the disease.”
On-road accidents, NCCE advised drivers to be cautious on our roads.
”The frightening record of road carnage during festive occasions is alarming. The NCCE is concerned about these needless Road Traffic accidents leading to deaths, trauma and destruction and appeals to Ghanaians, especially drivers and commuters to exercise restraint on the roads to prevent accidents and observe road safety guidelines. ”
