The National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) on Wednesday organized a quiz on the 1992 Ghana Constitution for basic schools in the Ningo-Prampram District.

The maiden basic school competition in the District had participants from Bethel School Complex, Christ Vision International School, Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) JHS, Wesley Methodist JHS and St Joseph Anglican JHS ‘B’.
After answering several questions on the Constitution, SDA JHS emerged winners with 53 points, while Christ Vision International School and Bethel School Complex placed second and third respectively.

Prizes presented to the winning schools were sponsored by Yummie Noodles, Cocoa Processing Company (CPC) and the Ningo-Prampram District Assembly (NIPDA).
Miss Gifty Agyeiwaa Badu, NCCE Ningo-Prampram District Director, said the quiz formed part of initiatives of the Commission to promote the reading and learning of the 1992 Constitution.

Miss Badu added that it was the Commission’s constitutional mandate to educate and create awareness among citizens on their rights and responsibilities under the constitution.
She said the Commission recently observed the citizenship week nationwide as part of the initiatives to create awareness on the constitution.

Mr Peter Gibson Azalekor, Officer in-charge of Finance and Administration at the Ningo-Prampram District Education Directorate, who represented the Education Director, reminded Ghanaians to learn the constitution as it contained their rights and responsibilities.

Mr Azalekor urged pupils to see it as a civic responsibility to stay in the classroom and learn hard towards building a career for themselves.
Mr Jonathan Papa Nii Doku, Ningo-Prampram District Chief Executive, on his part, encouraged the participants to put into practice what they have learnt from the constitution during their preparation towards the quiz.
