The celebration, which was started on May 26, would end on June 3.


It is on the theme: “A Disciplined Ghana” with a sub theme: “Ghana: The Power of One”.

The citizenship week is a flagship programme of the Commission which gives pupils the opportunity to interact with those in leadership positions and prominent persons in society to learn some virtues from them as role models and mentors.

Madam Gifty Agyeiwaa Badu, the Ningo-Prampram District Director of NCCE, advised the school children to eschew cheating in exams, disrespect to the elderly, environmental degradation, under-age voting, and rioting among other vices.

The schools she visited were Kinder Paradise, Abia SDA Junior High, New Ningo D/A Junior High ‘A’, New Ningo Junior High ‘B’, Someh Rahama Islamic and the Kpatcheremidor D/A schools.

Alhaji Sa-Rhack Nartey, the District Chief Executive for Ningo-Prampram, asked the pupils to spend more time with their books and less time to watch television and avoid engaging in activities that could jeopardise their future.

He urged them to show respect to their teachers, parents and the elderly and advised parents to desist from attacking teachers whenever their children were disciplined.
