The National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) in the Daffiama Bussie Issa District (DBI) in the Upper West Region have admonished the Chief and people of Owlo Community to demand more from their elected representative and government.
The call was made by a retired Civil Servant Mr. Paul Y. Badii who is a former District Director of the NCCE in the Wa East District in the Upper West Region.
He underscored the role of MPs to include;
facilitating constituent’s / communities’ concerns to government and partners.
Engaging more with constituents.
Fair distribution of the MPs common fund;
Social intervention initiatives, and among others.
He further charged local people to prioritize community building and development ahead of personal gains from elected members (MPs) and Politicians in general.
He expressed worry about how Political divisiveness is destroying our social cohesion and strong bond. He stressed that poverty and underdevelopment are their common enemy and for that, collective effort and oneness will help them break barriers to achieve development.
Also, the CEO of Ideapath Consult Mr. Tahiru Lukman speaking as a resource person on the topic ‘‘Covid- 19 and the Vaccine myths’’ seized the opportunity to educate the community members on coronavirus pandemic- protocols, mortalities, and vaccines.
He downplayed the fear that the Astra Zeneca vaccine approved and shipped to Ghana for use is a sterilization scheme aimed at crumbling the population of Africa/ Ghana.
He explained the strategy of health experts targeting head immunity from about 20,000,000 peoples as a target to roll out the vaccine.
