Mr. Larry Farrah Bimi was, immediately prior to his death, the Chairman of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE), an office he held since 1998. Throughout his adult life, Mr. Larry Bimi strived to correct injustice wherever he found it. This he always did by way of educating people on their civil and political rights. This quality was what made him the obvious person to occupy an office whose prime mandate is to create and sustain within the country the awareness of the principles and objectives of the 1992 Constitution.
He was determined to ensure that the ordinary citizen of this country (Ghana) knew his/her rights, duties and responsibilities. He was untiring in his effort to entrench civil and political rights in our society. Through his initiatives, innovation and dedication many have come to appreciate the essence of the fundamental human rights and freedoms contained in our Constitution.
The records show that he was resolute in the fight against child labour, moral decadence, teenage pregnancy, inadequate educational infrastructure, unbridled executive power and corruption. It was through Mr. Larry Bimi's astute leadership that the presence of the NCCE is felt in all the Districts and the thousands of communities in this country.
