Youth Advised not to Avail Themselves to Electoral Chaos and Violence

The National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) of the La Nkwantanang-Madina Municipal has celebrated this year’s “Citizens Week Celebration “with a call on the youth not to avail themselves to politicians or political activists as conduits for confusion, chaos and violence as the country goes to the polls.

They have also been urged to be ambassadors of peace and unity in their own little ways such as promoting peace everywhere they find themselves in this election year.

During the Week celebration, which is held annually, the Commission introduces an external resource person to interact with the pupils as a role model who shares their story to inspire the pupils while imparting them with civic education.

The main theme for this year’s celebration is “Together we can build Ghana, so get involved”, while the sub- theme is” Children, come let’s build Ghana “in connection with involvement of school children.

The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for La Nkwantanang-Madina Municipal, Mrs Jennifer Dede Adjabeng who made the call during her engagement with the pupils of Madina SDA School on Wednesday, June 12, 2024 encouraged them to always preach peace in their community through respectful subtle ways.

Sharing her background story during her formative years, she recounted to the pupils how she was assertive and determined during her schooling days, eager to excel in every task set before her.

According to her, she always challenged herself in every endeavour of life to be successful adding that “It pays to have a positive mind set in whatever you do.”

The MCE said at school she took up leadership positions including positions perceived as male- dominated such as becoming a cadet commander which gave her much resilience and fortitude to take up daunting tasks.

Hon. Adjabeng inspired the people to devote quality time to their books to achieve academic success, adding that the Christian foundation of the school should also help shape their destiny.

Being respectful, obedient and disciplined, she said, should be essential values that they should nurture if they want to transition to successful and responsible adulthood

Hon. Adjabeng commended the SDA School for keeping the school surroundings in good shape.

The Municipal NCCE Director, Madam Doris Agyeman urged the children to be tolerant of each other and perform their duties well as citizens to help build a better Ghana and enhance our democracy as enshrined in article 41 of the constitution.

She advised the children to respect the national symbols, the national pledge and the national anthem, adding that they should protect government property and the environment.
