The Kyidomhene of Banso in the Asante-Akim South District, Nana Kwaku Effa, has called on the government to adequately equip the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) to enable it to execute its duties efficiently.
He said people would understand government policies and would discharge their civic responsibilities if personnel of the Commission were given support and logistics.
Nana Effa said this at a durbar organized by the Asante-Akim South District office of the NCCE for the chiefs and people of Banso to sensitise them on the re-denomination of the cedi.
He said the sensitisation was a good exercise that would forestall misunderstanding of the value of the new currency especially among the rural folks.
Nana Effa commended the Bank of Ghana for initiating the re-denomination, saying the benefits of the move would be enormous.
Mr Stephen Aburam Asamoah, the District Director of the NCCE, said the re-denomination would eliminate the risk involved in carrying loads of the current currency for business transactions.
He said since the new currency would be in circulation alongside the present one for six months, there would be no need for people to rush to exchange their monies.
