The National Commission on Civic Education (NCCE) has urged Ghanaians to defend and uphold the 1992 Constitution to fast-track development and national cohesion.
According to the NCCE, the constitution gives Ghanaians an identity and a sense of belonging which must be protected and promoted at all times.
This was captured in its statement to commemorate the Constitution Day.
The NCCE said this would enable a peaceful co-existence among all citizens.
Speaking on the theme, “30 years of consolidating Constitutional Democracy: Building National Cohesion through Civic Education and Participation in Local Governance,” the Chairperson of the NCCE, Kathleen Addy said “As we commemorate the 30 years celebrations [of Ghana’s democracy], NCCE calls on Ghanaians to participate actively in governance and continue to uphold the 1992 Constitution as the supreme law of Ghana until any amendments are made.”
“To sustain peace and to promote national cohesion, the Commission urges the country to unite to consolidate our goals toward growth. The Commission’s commitment to the common goal of educating all citizens in every nook and crane will foster inclusion, especially with the vulnerable groups in society and also pass down Ghanaian values such as patriotism, hard work, honesty, respect for the rights and freedoms of others down to the entire population.”
