The Upper East Regional Director of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE), Frederick Mawuli Agbenu, is worried that Ghanaians are losing what could be described as Ghanaian values.

The situation, according to Mr. Agbenu, has become even more concerning as the 2024 general election approaches. He spoke to Mark Smith on the Day Break Upper East show recently.

The NCCE, he said, has been taking steps to “reinculcate these values in all Ghanaians so that we can continue to enjoy the peace we have in Ghana. We have been carrying out these activities, especially with this year being an election year.”

“I am talking about values like tolerance, integrity, respect for the elderly, hard work, and truthfulness,” he said.

Additionally, the Commission is running activities to increase awareness and knowledge in first-time voters, stressing that “we are going to the polls for the ninth time. We have done it successfully for eight times, but it doesn’t guarantee that the ninth one will be successful.”

Mr. Agbenu called on all stakeholders to be committed to ensuring that the election is a peaceful one.

“We have to ensure that the elections are safe. We have to ensure that the elections are free of violence and that they are credible,” he said.

For first-time voters, the NCCE, according to the Upper East Regional Director, is working to instill in them “tolerance, religious inclusivity, and the need for them to know that the fact that we belong to different opposing sides of the religious divide does not make us enemies.”
