The acting Ashanti Regional Director of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE), Mr Arthur Wilson, has called for increased support to enable it efficiently perform its constitutional mandate.

The present situation, where the Commission was struggling with inadequate funding and the lack of vital logistics and tools needed to be addressed.

Making the call in Kumasi, he said the financial constraint was making the going tough for the commission stressing that it had become difficult to effectively carry out civic education to aid the people to have better understanding of their fundamental rights, freedoms and responsibilities.

Mr Wilson said there were things –wrongs, which ordinarily many would not commit given proper education, pointing out that this was the way forward to check lawlessness so that the incident of people taking the law into their own hands would be prevented.

He said building an enlightened society, where everybody was motivated to get right with the law should be made an urgent national priority.

Mr Wilson said its public education programmes in the last December polls were carried out largely through the support of the European Union (EU) and United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF).

He reiterated that the NCCE “is non-partisan” and focused on helping to make Ghana a safe and peaceful place for everybody -GNA
