Sixty Civil Society Organisations (CSO’s) have called on the government to, as a matter of urgency, retool the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) with the necessary funds and logistics to enable it to play the critical role of national public education on the novel coronavirus disease.

In a statement, the CSO’s further appealed to the government to prioritize the role of the Commission by providing it with the required resources to enable it to discharge its obligations beyond the COVID-19.

The CSOs include Ghana Anti-Corruption Coalition (GACC), Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA), SEND-Ghana, Ghana Centre for Democratic Development (CDD-Ghana), Ghana Integrity Initiative (GII), IMANI, and the West Africa Civil Society Institute (WACSI).

The CSO’s said the role of the NCCE cannot be underestimated in the fight against COVID -19 due to the crucial role public education plays in efforts to curb spread of the virus.

According to the statement, without public education from institutions such as the NCCE, the public, especially those in the rural areas, will be oblivious of COVID- 19 and will resist adhering to the safety protocols against the virus.
