Workers of the National Commission for Civic Education, NCCE, have been cautioned to eschew the habit of absenteeism, laziness, and lateness at their workplaces that could impede the work of the Commission.
The Greater Accra Regional Director of the NCCE, Alex Sackey said this when he paid a working visit to the Ada West District office of the Commission as part of his familiarization tour in the District since his assumption into office as the Regional Director.
The visit was to officially introduce the newly Greater Accra Regional Director to the workers to interact with them to garner their support and also to assess the Commission’s activities in the District.
Addressing the workers, Mr. Sackey lamented the attitude of some workers in the various districts to place their activities above their duties at the workplace.
According to him, the work of the Commission is broad and required commitment, dedication, and hard work on the part of all workers to collectively prosecute the mandate of the Commission as specified by the constitution.
The NCCE Greater Accra regional Director advised the workers of the Ada West District office to shun lackadaisical attitudes that could affect civic education delivery of the Commission in the district and charged the workers to give off their best.
Mr. Sackey urged staff to stand out wherever they find themselves as civic educators adding that they are model citizens whose duties are to teach other citizens how to live with the right civic dispositions and values, hence they must always show the way in terms of good citizenship.
He added that as staff of the NCCE, they could not educate the public on their civic responsibilities and exhibit a contrary lifestyle in their communities and workplaces.
Mr. Sackey asked them to step up their effort at assisting the citizenry to have a better understanding of their civic responsibilities and go the extra mile to reach out to everybody indicating that they have the constitutional duty to perform and could not afford to disappoint.
He noted that as NCCE staff they have a crucial role to play to help Ghanaians show loyalty and love to the country.
Mr. Sackey counseled the workers to live above reproach and conduct themselves well to inspire public confidence. They should be professional in the performance of their duties and strive to achieve results in any resource put at their disposal.
He, therefore, charged the staff to make time to familiarize themselves with the content of the 1992 Constitution and the Commission’s Handbook, adding that what is contained in the book is a good resource for every civic educator.
On his part, the Ada West District Director of the NCCE, Samuel Etsey, assured the Regional Director and his entourage of the Ada West District NCCE readiness to work with him to achieve the core mandate of the Commission and to be meticulous in their work in the community.
He also expressed their sincere, profound, and heartfelt gratitude to the Regional Director and his entourage for their kind gesture and asked for their prayers for good health and traveling mercies.
He was accompanied by his two deputies, Mrs. Joana Nkansah, Deputy Director in charge Programmes, and Madam Gloria Kudo, Deputy Director in charge of Administration.
