Mr Inusah Iddrisu, Education Officer for the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) has urged citizens who feel aggrieved about any abuse of their fundamental human rights to seek redress at the appropriate institutions of state.

He said human rights abuses deny citizens the opportunity to enjoy their full freedom in a free democratic state such as Ghana, saying that, “the 1992 Constitution guarantees citizens rights. You must always stand up and demand for your rights without using any violent means to seek redress”.

Mr Iddrisu was addressing the people of Sagnarigu district, as part of activities to sensitize them about their human rights, as enshrined in the 1992 constitution of Ghana.

The sensitization was part of series of activities being undertaken by the Human Help and Development Group (HHDG) an NGO, to educate residents of Sagnarigu and Shishegu about their basic human rights and other social issues that affect them, to help reduce the abuse of their rights.

Mr Iddrisu said human rights protections were interrelated with the provision of pro-poor social interventions to ensure people enjoyed better living conditions, stressing that, the introduction of the National Health Insurance Scheme and the Livelihood Empowerment Against Poverty are to cushion people out of poverty and to enable them to have decent living conditions.

Ms Doris Antwi, Project Officer of Savannah Integrated Rural Development Aid (SIRDA) urged rural communities to cultivate the culture of saving through which they could raise funds for economic activities.
