Mr. Sammy Asumah, Nkoranza District Director of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) has called on financial institutions to devote part of their working hours to educate customers to fully understand the re-denomination of the cedi.
Speaking in an interview with the Ghana News Agency, he said uneducated customers might have problems in doing business in the new currency.
Mr. Asumah urged opinion leaders including assembly members, teachers, religious leaders and 'susu' collectors to assist in educating the people on the exercise.
He said staff of the district office of the Commission would carry the exercise to churches, schools, durbar grounds and association meetings.
Mr. Asumah appealed to the government to resource the NCCE district offices to enable the staff to reach remote communities to educate the people.
He said communities including Anama, Nsugum, Makyinmabre, Mangoase, Dinkra Betoda and Pienyina were far to reach and urged the Information Services Department to continue to collaborate with the NCCE for the success of the exercise.
