Mr. Samuel Otchere, the Asante Akim South District Director of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE), who gave the advice implored students to demonstrate exemplary conducts, discipline and moral uprightness to make the society a better place to live.
He was addressing students of the Great Jesus International School, at Juaso, at a ceremony to mark the commencement of week-long activities for this year?s Citizenship Week celebration.
Speaking on the theme, ?My Ghana: The Power of One?, the NCCE Director said the power of the individual to effect change and help create a prosperous Ghana resided in every Ghanaian.
He counseled them to embrace discipline, respect for school rules, and regulations whilst also working hard on their books to successfully graduate from school.
?You should also do away with attitudes that can ruin your future,? he added.
Mr. Patrick Asare, a civic educator of the NCCE, urged the students to work hard to make good grades rather than cutting corners during examination malpractices.
They should also respect each other?s rights and religion to foster national unity and cohesion, he said.
Mr. Frank Agyemang, the Coordinator of Civic Club in the school, commended the NCCE for the insightful event and urged them to pay regular visits to the School.
The Citizenship Week is celebrated every year by the NCCE to remind young Ghanaians of their responsibilities as citizens and the role they could play to build a strong, vibrant and democratic country.
The period is an opportunity to create a platform for role models in leadership positions as well as accomplished citizens to interact and impart virtues of good citizenship to pupils in basic schools across the country.
