The Ashanti Regional Director of the National for Commission for Civic Education (NCCE), Mr. Alhassan Yakubu, has roundly condemned the situation where leaders are openly denigrated, derided and insulted.

That, he said, was completely unacceptable, alien to the Ghanaian culture and must be rejected.

Mr. Yakubu therefore called on everybody not to disrespect people in authority, even if they disagreed with things they did.

He was contributing to discussions at separate community durbars held at Ntiribuoho in Afigya-Kwabre and Abuakwa in the Atwima-Nwabiagya Districts.

It formed part of the stepped up effort by the Commission to help ease political tension and prevent any nasty incidents ahead of the November 7 presidential and parliamentary elections.

These durbars provided the opportunity to promote and encourage active grassroots participation in decision-making to ensure local good governance.

A total of 17 districts in the region had so far been covered with support from the European Union (EU).

Mr. Yakubu said there was need for all to show tolerance, good conduct and get right with the law to preserve the peace.

He used the platform to urge effective cooperation and understanding between assembly members and the unit committees to bring socio-economic progress to the communities.

They should work to remove conflict between them and focus their efforts on tackling the felt needs of those they were representing, he added.

He reminded the people to make sure that they paid their levies and rates to the assemblies to strengthen their finances and capacity to support development programmes in the various communities.
