Sunyani, Nov. 28, GNA - The Brong-Ahafo Regional Directorate of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) on Saturday organised special games on Ghana's constitution among Civic Education clubs from selected Senior Secondary Schools in the Region at the Sunyani Secondary School (SUSEC) Campus.
The competition, which featured 10 clubs from selected second-cycle schools in the Region, was aimed at picking a champion to represent the region at next year's National Constitution Game Competition. Mr Samuel Akuamoah, NCCE Representative cautioned students to guard against acts that have the tendency of throwing the constitution overboard while nurturing our infant democracy.
He said terrible things happening in neighbouring West African countries could happen to Ghana if the 1992 constitution was not safeguarded.
The representative advised students to be abreast with the tenets of the Constitution so as to enable them educate people in their communities.
Mr. Akuamoah said the SUSEC Constitution Game Competition formed part of the NCCE's nation-wide outreach programme and it was to select a winner in each region for the national competition slated for April, next year.
He noted that there was the need to instil the knowledge of the constitution into students since they were the future leaders. Mr Akumoah stressed the need to make the study of the constitution easy in order that it would become part and parcel of the students. Mansen Senior Secondary School (MANSEC, which represented the region at the national level last year, retained its first position followed by Busunya Senior Secondary (BUSEC).
Sunyani Senior Secondary School (SUSEC) took the third position, Jema Senior Secondary (JEMSEC), Berekum Senior Secondary (BESS), Our Lady of Providence, and Bechem Presbyterian followed in that order. Other participants included Asuogyaman Senior Secondary, Gyamfi Kumaning Senior Secondary/Technical School in the Asutifi district and Goaso Ahafoman Senior Secondary.
All participating schools were presented with NCCE-designed T-shirts and some constitutional materials.
