The acting Nkwanta South District Director of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE), Mr Daniel Agbesi Latsu, has advised citizens to stop the blame game at the least provocation.

He said they must forge ahead as one people with a common destiny since every person was important for the nation’s development.

Observing Citizenship Day with public education and tree planting exercises in some junior high schools and communities in the district, Mr Latsu told school pupils to cultivate the virtue of tolerance to promote peace among communities, adding the slogan, “live and lets live” should be adopted to ensure peaceful co-existence among all.

The public education covered 18 JHSs and two primary schools with the tree planting exercise at Asuogya, a farming community.

The Chief of Dadiase, Nana Kofi Sram II, advised the pupils to take their studies seriously and comport themselves to enable them grow to become useful to society.

He said they should be reminded that the development of the nation was a collective responsibility of all irrespective of age, religion, tribe or party affiliation.

The Headmaster of the Dadiase JHS, Mr Michael Owusu-Boafo, appealed to pupils to develop interest in the study of the 1992 Constitution to enable them to play their roles effectively, adding that adequate knowledge of the Constitution would help ensure that citizens know more about their rights, as well as responsibilities.

On the tree planting exercise, Mr Latsu explained that it was a vital exercise to help replace lost forest cover in the long-term, and said human activities such as shifting cultivation, indiscriminate falling of trees for lumber and charcoal and bush burning were some of the causes of the alarming rate of the loss of forest cover in the country.

He ,therefore, stressed that it was the civic duty of every citizen of the nation to protect and safeguard the environment.

The Headmaster of Asuogya D.A JHS thanked the management and staff of NCCE in the district for their initiative, adding that the tree planting exercise would serve as a wind break to the school, as well as provide shelter to the pupils.

The Chairman of the School Management Committee, Mr Malija Moshi, assured the management of the NCCE that the trees would be protected and nurtured to serve as a monument for the 2013 Citizenship Day celebration in the school.

It would be recalled that the Citizenship Day concept was instituted by the NCCE in 2012 aimed at educating pupils in basic schools across the country on their rights and duties as future leaders of Ghana.

It was also meant to commemorate Ghana’s return to democratic rule in 1992 and also to serve as a platform for the pupils to meet and interact with role models who lived in their communities. The theme for this year was, “Everyone Counts”.
