Nation building not for government alone – Magistrate

Ghana flagsMr Charles Wiafe, Gomoa West District Magistrate, has advised Ghanaians not to consider the task of nation building and development as the preserve of government.

He said every citizen is important and has a role to play in the national development agenda.

Mr Wiafe was addressing teachers and students of Apam St Jude Catholic Junior High School in the Central Region, during the celebration of the Citizenship Day, at Apam.

The Day, which was to commemorate the return to democratic rule in 1992, was instituted by the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) in May, 2012. Before 2012, the event was known as Constitution Week.

Mr Wiafe appealed to Ghanaians to be conversant with the 1992 Constitution, which is a guide to all and sundry.

He advised students to learn hard to acquire knowledge and skills needed for development and desist from activities that could affect their progress.

Ms Georgina Yeboah, Gomoa District Director of the NCCE, said the Commission instituted the Citizenship Day to inculcate into the youth, good citizenship, consciousness and patriotism to be able to uphold democratic values.
