Chief calls for more resources to support NCCE



The Paramount Chief of the Sagnarigu traditional area, Ambassador Yakubu Abdulai has added his voice to the need to resource the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) adequately so that it can carry out its responsibility of educating  citizens.

Chief Abdulai said like the regional peace council, the NCCE should be up and running if it had adequate resources. Speaking at the launch of the “football for peace” project in Tamale, the chief entreated political parties and candidates to ensure peace during the election.

He also advised them to avoid intemperate language during political campaigns and accept the results in good faith the release of results after November 7 elections.

Chief Abdulai also cautioned the media to always dig out their facts well before publishing them adding that the NCCE should organize media sensitization on appropriate reporting which he urged should begin as soon as possible, at least before the impending November 7 elections.

He further cautioned the general public, the electorate and the youth not to be used by politicians as agents of violence only to be abandoned when they fall victim. “I believe that we still have people suffering the wounds of the 2012 elections, they went to the hospital and the politicians did not even know they exist, why do we keep repeating the same thing which bring no positive result to us?” the career diplomat who served as Ghana’s ambassador to Conakry, Ouagadougou, Algiers, New York, Rome, Abidjan and Brazzaville, asked.

Ambassador Abdulai who in 2009 was appointed to Senegal with concurrent accreditations to the Gambia and Cape Verde said, “Let us wake up, we do not want to continue to be hewers of wood and drawers of water, we need to make peace.”
