“Education is key in the fight against Covid-19” – NCCE Chairperson

Accra, April 30, GNA – Mrs Josephine Nkrumah, Chairperson of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE), has said civic education in the wake of Covid-19 is important to fighting the pandemic.
She said the NCCE was committed to educating the public on best practices and safety measures to avoid the spread of the disease.
Mrs Nkrumah made these remarks when the CAMFED Association of Ghana, a non-governmental organization, donated items to the commission to aid in their civic education of the citizenry.
The donation included 144 pieces of hand sanitizers, 480 bottles liquid soaps, 180 paper towels, and 300 pieces of nose masks, as well as a cash donation.
The NCCE Chairperson said the donation would augment the inadequate stock of protective equipment the commission has in discharging its duty.
“This will help us in discharging our duties and ensure that our staff are adequately well-prepared when they go on the field to educate the public,” she said.
She said education was a shared responsibility and called on civil society groups and other institutions to assist the NCCE in this regard.
She said the donation was also an assurance of the confidence citizens had in them as a commission, adding that they would continue to do their best and put the items donated to good use.
Ms Angela Menyah, Executive Member of CAMFED Association of Ghana, said they donated the commission after it had requested donations of such items for its staff.
“The NCCE made a call to institutions and organisations to support it to discharge its civic duty in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, so we decided to donate to help them deliver on their mandate,” she said.
She called on the public to practice safety protocols to curb the rise in infection of the disease and adhere to all decisions and directives from the government.
CAMFED International is an international non-governmental organization that supports young and needy but brilliant ladies through their education.
