The National Commission for Civic Education has received 50 Isuzu vehicles from the Office of the President to boost its Covid-19 sensitisation campaigns across the country.
In addition, the sum of GH¢2,000, 517 has been released to the Commission to facilitate its work on COVID-19.
NCCE Chairman, Josephine Nkrumah was thankful to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for his commitment to stopping the spread of the virus in Ghana.
She said the gesture shows the President is determined to resource the NCCE to play its role in sensitizing the public against the virus.
Madam Nkrumah is convinced that there is so much the NCCE can do to stir-up civic consciousness among Ghanaians.
But the yearly lack of resources and tools remain a major set back for the Commission to reach out to the larger population.
“We at the Commission are also thankful to Civil Society Organisations in Ghana, the media and the people of Ghana who passionately advocated that NCCE be resourced to educate citizens on COVID-19 and more importantly intensify civic education in Ghana,” she said.
“The work of the civic educator in the next three months is critical and I charge all officers of the Commission to work hard in our collective fight against COVID-19,” she continued.
Present at the ceremony were, Deputy Chairman, Operations, Samuel Asare Akuamoah, Director, Communications and Corporate Affairs, Joyce Afutu and her Deputy Rita Tetteh, transport officers and drivers from the regions.
